Floyd Mayweather’s bodyguard Ray ‘Jizzy Mack’ Sadeghi is set to fight Japanese kickboxer Koji ‘Kouzi’ Tanaka in Mayweather’s upcoming exhibition bout in Japan.
The 50-0 boxing legend is set to take on Mikuru Asakura on September 25 at Saitama Super Arena.
Asakura is a Japanese MMA fighter who also has a popular YouTube channel in his home country.
When the couple held their press conference in America last month, Mayweather’s bodyguard unexpectedly took center stage.
As Mayweather and Asakura clashed, Jizzy intervened.
He pushed the Japanese fighter away from Floyd.
This was considered disrespectful and caused a backlash in Japan.
Kouzi has called for a fight with Jizzy and now it’s been confirmed that the pair will meet on the undercard.
Their fight will be an open weight stand-up contest and there will be a drastic size difference between them.
Jizzy weighs over 200 pounds, while Kouzi usually weighs 135 pounds.
A full set of official rules is yet to be publicly confirmed with the announcement.
After September, Mayweather looks set for another exhibition fight before the end of the year.
The 45-year-old boxed his former sparring partner Don Moore in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in May.
And now he has confirmed his intention to return to the United Arab Emirates on November 13.
This time he will travel to Dubai and it is rumored that he is in talks with KSI’s brother Deji as his potential opponent.
