The situation nearly ended in disaster after Mayweather's bodyguard went rogue.
Things escalated pretty quickly after the announcement of Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s upcoming boxing exhibition bout with Japanese featherweight and popular YouTuber Mikuru Asakura on September 25. Out of nowhere, Mayweather's security guard pushed Asakura away during the traditional staredown. Take a look at how everyone was worried about what was happening.
Mayweather will compete again at the legendary Saitama Super Arena in Japan four years after crushing Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018. Rizin Fighting Federation is on good terms with "Money," and they found an agreement for another appearance on a card that also features the bantamweight clash between Kyoji Horiguchi and Yuto Hokamura.
In his latest exhibition match, 45-year-old Mayweather took on Don Moore for eight rounds. Prior, "Money" locked horns with YouTube personality Logan Paul. While his professional boxing career is over, Mayweather doesn't look to be willing to hang up the gloves once and for all anytime soon.
