Mayweather, 45, predicted that Pacquiao will be a world champion in the “future” following their bout. Pacquiao addressed the audience both before and after the performance.
Asakura, who was 30 at the time, is claimed to have traveled to the Philippines to discuss competing with Pacquiao. Pacquiao took part in order to encourage Asian combat sports. After hearing Pacquiao state twice that he wanted to be invited back, people began to believe that Pacquiao, Mayweather, and Rizin would fight.

Round two was much faster. Mayweather launched his assault on Asakura with a right-hand shot to the head and body.
Asakura’s strike jerked Mayweather’s head back, despite the fact that it was difficult for him to hit the renowned careful fighter. His issue was that he was terrible at making new acquaintances
