Who is Mikuru Asakura, Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent?

Floyd Mayweather is already 45 years old and a thirst to make more millions that knows no limits, that’s why Mr Money has just announced a new exhibition against Japanese Mikuru Asakura. And here at MARCA we tell you more about the American’s next opponent.

The announcement comes after Mayweather, who retired from professional boxing in 2017 with an unblemished 50-0 record, faced former training partner Don Moore in Abu Dhabi last month in a non-scoring clash.

Asakura isn’t a boxer, he’s an MMA fighter

Meanwhile, Asakura, 29, has no boxing experience, while his Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) record currently stands at 16-3.

But speaking ahead of his latest challenge, he said, ‘I am an MMA fighter, but I will take this opportunity and use it to raise my name and my value internationally. I will win this fight.’

Meanwhile, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, CEO of Rizin, added, ‘I’m very happy to be sitting between these two athletes for this event, which will be Floyd Mayweather’s second with RIZIN.

He already brutally defeated a Japanese fighter in the first round since in the form of kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in 2018, before his fight with Logan Paul last summer went the full eight rounds.
