Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring this weekend for an exhibition boxing match with mixed martial artist Mikuru Asakura.

Mayweather retired as a professional boxer in 2017 after stopping former UFC champion Conor McGregor to improve his record to 50-0. Since then, the American has fought kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa, YouTuber Logan Paul and boxer Don Moore in exhibition bouts, beating the former via TKO and going the distance with the latter two.

The former multi-weight world champion, 45, is now set to take on Asakura in the fighter’s home country of Japan, as the pair face off at the Super Saitama Arena on Saturday (September 24).

Asakura, 30, has a professional MMA record of 16-3 (1 No Contest) and has won nine of his victories by knockout or TKO. Saturday’s main event against Mayweather marks Asakura’s boxing debut, and it will take place under the banner of Rizin – the MMA promotion for which Asakura competes in the featherweight division.
