On a Sunday night, Floyd Mayweather — not for the first time his career — left fight fans stunned.
The undefeated boxer announced he’d be once again leaving retirement to fight Tenshin Nasukawa in RIZIN on December 31 of this year. The rules and weight class are yet to be set, as well as various other background context to the shocking announcement.
