TOKYO (AP) — The undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. says Japanese fans will be able to “see a glimpse of the old pretty boy” when he fights the Manny Pacquiao-trained Mikuru Asakura in a three-round exhibition on Sunday.
The 45-year-old Mayweather told reporters on Saturday he is in good condition for the bout with 30-year-old Asakura, a mixed martial artist specialist who is making his boxing debut at the Saitama Super Arena north of Tokyo.
There are no weight restrictions for the bout. “It’s all about having fun,” said Mayweather, who has a perfect 50-0 record.
His long-time Filipino rival Pacquiao, a champion in eight weight divisions, also appeared at Saturday’s press conference.
