RIZIN 14: Tenshin v Mayweather full fight card and how to watch
RIZIN is back with a cracking show to finish off the year. An exhibition, that no one expected to happen, between Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa tops the main fight card. A bout between Kawajiri and Kitaoka headlines the New Year’s Heisei Yarennoka! portion of the night.
This RIZIN card is the arguably the promotions best one yet. Two title fights will take place, Kyoji Horiguchi will face Darrion Caldwell for the bantamweight strap while Kanna Asakura and Ayaka Hamasaki fight for the vacant atomweight belt. Outside of the main event and the two title fights there are still some incredible fighters and big names gracing the card. Female stars Rena Kubota and Gabi Garcia will both appear while plenty of former UFC fighters help fill out the card. Arguably the most underrated fight on the card is a bout that sees Jiri Prochazka take on former Bellator middleweight champion Brandon Halsey.
Unfortunately the preliminary part of the event is only available to watch on tape delay, however, the main card will be available on PPV on FITE TV.
