The lucky Japanese fight fans 野球オッズ in attendance and watching around the world have been gifted with a special rules fight between kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa and MMA legend Takanori Gomi.

Just one day prior to the Tenshin vs. Gomi fight announcement, it was revealed that the 23-year-old would take part in a “super fight” against K1 star Takeru Segawa in the summer of 2022.  

Nasukawa is in the process of leaving RIZIN FF in order to pursue a career in straight boxing.

It’s unclear what weight the fight will take place at as Tenshin usually fights at 128 pounds, while Gomi’s last appearance saw him weigh in at 172 pounds but he has previously fought between featherweight and welterweight.

Earlier this year, Nasukawa again tried his luck in the squared circle only this time under a modified ruleset against three different opponents who fought one round each and after the there rounds a no decision was declared.
