Floyd Mayweather to fight one other exhibition bout in Japan


TOKYO — Floyd Mayweather will fight in Japan again in one other exhibition, this time against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura.

Promoters on Tuesday said the bout is scheduled for September. The principles and length of the bout haven’t yet been made public.

Mayweather retired undefeated from skilled boxing almost five years ago but has been fighting exhibitions. Just over three years ago in Japan he knocked out Tenshin Nasukawa, a widely known Japanese kickboxer.

Mayweather was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame on Sunday in the US.
