"Rizin has done a remarkable job with the fighters", Mayweather said.

"I think my shortest answer to that is the fact that now we are aligned to achieve something together and that is hitting a new challenge, taking a step forward to whatever wonderful thing that we can create together", Rizin promoter Nobuyaki Sakakibara said. Floyd said he would fight outside of boxing and most just blew the comments off as self promotion but here we are.

"I want to continue to build my relationship with Money Team Tokyo", he added, promoting the cross-code bout as an expansion of his businesses into Japan.

But beyond the global reach of a fight in Japan, Mayweather appears to be winding up to an already much-anticipated clash with Nurmagomedov.

Mayweather, who stopped McGregor in the 10th round a year ago after coming out of retirement for a $275 million pay day, had been flirting with the idea of a rematch with the Irishman or facing fearsome Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov.
