Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced Monday in Tokyo that he has agreed to a bout in the Rizin Fighting Federation.

Mayweather will fight on Dec. 31 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Both Mayweather and his opponent, Tenshin Nasukawa, were introduced at a news conference in Tokyo by Rizin officials.

It was not clear whether it will be a boxing match, an MMA fight or some other combat sport. The promoters said they were still working on the specific rule set.

Interesting tidbit for UK Bgers. Seems BT could be showing UFC til the end of the year before it switches to 11sports. UFC 231 will definitely be airing and talk was deal was ending on Dec 3rd .

TNT tried to bid for UFC a few months ago but couldn't compete with the ESPN money. ONE is kind of a friendly rival to UFC right now, but that may change with this. They've got a lot of Chinese business investors so they've got serious money and the production values of their shows are almost PRIDE level good. Plus they've got Michael Schiavello as their announcer so it will be cool to hear him freaking out over knockouts again.

Eleven Sports, which just signed a multi-year rights deal with UFC in the U.K., has lost the deal and the company is reported as being in trouble.

It has been confirmed that UFC has pulled out of its deal with Eleven based on a clause in the contract, and is expected to stay with BT Sports, which had the rights to UFC that were expiring at the end of this year.
