The 45-year-old boxing legend will step back into the ring against a man 15 years his junior and will be determined to showcase the same flair and skill that led him to a perfect, polished 50-0 undefeated professional record.

Mayweather's final professional fight appeared to come in 2015 before coming out of retirement to silence Conor McGregor to make it a rounded 50 wins, zero defeats.

Since then, he has travelled the word in a string of high profile exhibitions against a varied range of opponents, Asakura being the latest.

The 30-year-old Japanese fighter is highly-skilled in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and karate, but his boxing skills will be put to the test against one of the all-time greats.
