- Former boxing champion Floyd Mayweather now says his planned "exhibition" with Tenshin Nasukawa for the New Year's Eve Rizin card is back on. In an interview with TMZ Sports, Mayweather confirmed plans to talk with the promotion once more and hammer out the details.

"It's gonna be a little boxing exhibition," he said. "No kicking at all. I'm moving around with the guy for nine minutes. And it's gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever."

Mayweather appeared at a press conference in Japan to announce plans for the bout, but a few days later, claimed there were issues with the fight and he was not going to be competing. The bout will take place from the Saitama Super Arena on December 31.

"We're gonna make it happen," he added. "I'm far from hurting for money. I got a ton of money."

- Daniel Cormier, the reigning UFC heavyweight champion, wants fans to help decide who he should face next with the help of Carl's Jr. Cormier earned a sponsorship from the West Coast burger joint prior to his UFC 230 win over Derrick Lewis.
