Comedian Michael Blackson wants to lace up the gloves. The hip-hop funnyman has teased fans about the idea of going toe-to-toe with boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Blackson went to Instagram Wednesday (November 7) with a hilarious shot of himself talking to Mayweather about a fictional bout.

Throughout the week, rap star 50 Cent and UFC fighter Conor McGregor have trolled Mayweather’s comeback fight going down next month.



According to reports, Mayweather’s decision came shortly after he signed a new promotional deal.

The boxer announced his decision after signing for mixed martial arts promotions company RIZIN Fighting Federation. Mayweather has never fought in MMA before and the format for the Nasukawa fight has not yet been confirmed. “I wanted to do something different,” said the former five-weight world champion. (CNN)

Mayweather’s opponent is more than half his age and has an impressive career record.

Japan’s Nasukawa, 20, competes in the RIZIN Fighting Federation, the company Mayweather has signed with, in both kickboxing and mixed martial arts. “It was a surprise offer but I accepted without hesitation,” said Nasukawa, who has a 27-0 record in kickboxing and a 4-0 record in MMA. (BBC)
