After holding an exhibition match between Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa, MMA organization Rizin Fighting Federation recently signed Manny Pacquiao for Rizin 15.

Rizin CEO, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, took to Twitter to announce the signing of Pacquiao for its upcoming event. Although no formal details have been revealed, the eight-division boxing champ has simply been announced to be “involved” in some aspect. With Rizin 15 set to take place in just two weeks, it is unclear if we will be seeing Pacquiao step into the ring. The signing of Pacquiao could simply be part of some interesting promotional techniques for Rizin 15, which will see Kyoji Horiguchi defend his Bantamweight Championship title against UFC veteran Ben Nguyen.

Stay tuned for more details as the story develops.
