TMZ Sports caught up with Floyd Mayweather on Wednesday night in Beverly Hills as he was spending some money on jewelry.  According to Floyd his fight, which he describes as a boxing exhibition, with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa is back on.

We talked to Floyd Wednesday night as he left Peter Marco jewelry in Beverly Hills … and he told us the fight is very much alive.

“We’re gonna make it happen.”

Question is … is it boxing, kickboxing or MMA?

“Rules? It’s gonna be a little boxing exhibition. No kicking,” Floyd told us … “I’m moving around with the guy for 9 minutes, and of course it’s gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever.”

It sounds like Mayweather is legitimately concerned about the 20-year-old kickboxer.  Why else would he repeatedly insist that it’s an exhibition?

If he loses this “exhibition” it’s going down as an official L in our book.  It doesn’t matter how many times Mayweather says it’s an exhibition.

Let’s hope he gets his face bashed in.
