“I am very special.” Floyd Mayweather on Asakura fight


45-year-old boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. commented on the upcoming exhibition fight against Japanese MMA fighter Mikura Asakura.

Earlier this week, it was officially announced that the Mayweather-Asakura fight would take place in September in Japan under the auspices of local promotion Rizin. At the same time, the exact date and specific venue will be announced later.

Mayweather did not miss the opportunity to paint himself beloved in bright colors.

“I know that he is confident in his skills, but he has never been in the ring with Floyd Mayweather,” the American reasonably emphasized. –– All these other guys, they are just fighters, but I am Floyd Mayweather. I’m on another level. I am special. And not just special, but very special.”

“This guy will go into the ring and show his best, like any guy. But I’ve seen every style, so my job will be to get out (in the ring) and just be myself and have fun and do what I do best,” Floyd added.

Mayweather boxed in the UAE in May. It was also an exhibition bout, against his former sparring partner Don Moore, and as expected ended without a result being announced.
