Mayweather Jr. vs Tenshin Odds Analysis

Mayweather Jr. vs Tenshin Betting Odds

If you didn’t have New Year’s Eve plans yet, Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. may have just provided you with some entertainment as it was announced on November 4 that he would be fighting Tenshin Nasukawa under the Rizin Fighting Federation promotion in Tokyo, Japan.

This will be the first time that Mayweather shows off his skills in Tokyo, but what skills will be on display is the question that remains as the rules for this bout weren’t announced. Regardless, the undefeated boxer, Money, is a -260 favorite with the undefeated kickboxer, Nasukawa, coming back at +200.

Odds Breakdown

Without the official rules being announced, there could be a chance this fight doesn’t include kicks, takedowns or elbows as Mayweather was asking for if he were to fight Conor McGregor in the UFC. If that’s the case and this is essentially just a boxing match, then -260 for Money is an absolute steal and you should hammer it. However, Nasukawa is no joke, for the people who don’t know who he is.

The 20-year-old holds a perfect 27-0 kickboxing record and a perfect 4-0 MMA record, although he hasn’t fought in MMA in over a year. He has four wins alone this year in kickboxing, including winning the RISE featherweight (126-pound) championship, his fourth different kickboxing title. Most recently, the Japan native beat former UFC flyweight title challenger Kyoji Horiguchi via unanimous decision. If this fight is more of a traditional kickboxing fight, I like Nasukawa at +200 because we have never seen Floyd check a kick or defend a head kick.

Another question for this fight is what the length will be as we all know how Mayweather drags his opponents into deep water to tire them out before picking up the pace and putting his foes away. I would anticipate Floyd’s team to push for a longer bout like 10 rounds, which would be interesting as Nasukawa has only fought six rounds once in his career, in June of this year.

As more rules come to light as the fight nears, the odds will likely fluctuate one way or another. As for right now, considering the power Mayweather brings to the table and his ability to manipulate a fight, if there’s no kicks or elbows etc., bet the house on him at -260.
