Manny Pacquiao to be ‘involved’ in Rizin 15

Rizin 14 was headlined by Floyd Mayweather who faced kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in what was billed as an exhibition match. However the Japanese star found himself on the wrong end of a vicious beating from the veteran boxer.
Tenshin is expected to appear on the Rizin 15 card but does not have an opponent. This will fuel rumours that he is going to be matched with Pacquiao in another exhibition match.
Rizin 15 is set for the Yokohama Arena on April 21st. Bantamweight champion Kyoji Horiguchi faces Ben Nguyen in a non title match while Muhammed Lawal challenges Jiří Procházka for the inaugural light heavyweight belt.
