Floyd Mayweather will return to the ring this September in Japan, where the 45-year-old Hall of Famer will face MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in an exhibition.

The exact date and rules for the fight have not been announced, although presumably they will fight under boxing rules.

Mayweather, who was inducted into the Hall Sunday, and Asakura took part in a new conference Tuesday to kick off the promotion. Here are images from the event. All photos courtesy of RIZIN.
