Mayweather vs. CreditMark J. On Saturday night in Las Vegas he showed he could box too. But not nearly well enough to beat Floyd Mayweather, one of the all-time greats of the game.
A post shared by Floyd Mayweather floydmayweather on Nov 4, at pm PST While some may refer to all of this as a one-time publicity stunt to be pulled during the promotion's biggest night of the year, it actually comes across as the beginning of a business relationship between the two parties -- if Sunday's press conference is any indication.
RIZIN promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara first alluded to the idea that some sort of partnership has formed while speaking to the media on Sunday.
Mayweather would follow up by giving his best form of confirmation that there are more plans ahead in the future, and this venture into the MMA business -- whatever that may end up entailing with this initial bout -- is just the beginning.
I look forward to taking this worldwide. But however you may view Mayweather the person, his business acumen speaks for itself, which undoubtedly has RIZIN officials optimistic.
We're just going to have to wait and see how the events of the coming weeks unfold before we can get a better outlook of just what exactly the self-proclaimed promotional king has cooked up.
