What has Mayweather said about Asakura?
“These other guys are just fighters, but I’m Floyd Mayweather. I’m on a different level. I’m special.
“Not just special, very special. This guy is going to come out and give his best, like every and any guy. But I’ve seen every style, so my job is just to go out there be me, have fun and do what I do best.
“I don’t have to watch tape on my opponents, he needs to watch me. I’m the one to watch. Everybody I face is just an opponent. It’s no different from facing Manny Pacquiao or Canelo Alvarez.”
“I had so many great days competing at the highest level, but this is a great feeling now to be able to travel the world and do these exhibition bouts and have fun.
“My legacy is already engraved in stone. It’s great to be able to entertain people around the world and from all walks of life. Come September in Japan, we’re going to give the people what they want to see.
“They want to see me still competing and be entertained by Floyd Mayweather.”
