Floyd Mayweather to return for more exhibition fights and claims he has £62m offers on table

In December Mayweather travelled to Tokyo as he took on Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout earning himself £7m.

Nasukawa, an unbeaten kickboxer, was competing under boxing rules for the first time while he also gave away a natural two-stone disadvantage.

Mayweather took just two minutes to take apart the boxing novice, dropping the 20-year-old three times before the fight was halted.

After Mayweather’s prodigy Gervonta Davis knocked out Hugo Ruiz last Saturday, the 41-year-old revealed he could again get his boxing gloves on for some more exhibition action.

Mayweather said: “You know what’s crazy? The exhibition was supposed to be $9m (£7m), but I end up making $10m (£7.7m). Over 10million, I got a bonus.

“Am I having more exhibitions? Probably so. Most likely, yeah. I got about $80m (£62m) on the table worth of exhibitions.”

Nasukawa was left in tears as he was demolished in Tokyo, but the kickboxer vowed to come back stronger.

The kickboxing star is set for another crack at boxing as Mayweather revealed he will take Davis over to Japan in April to compete in an exhibition bout against Nasukawa.

Mayweather said: "We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight], if that's okay with him.

"He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN.

"I'm proud of Tank. He is going to stay active. So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight."
