Conor McGregor roasted and praised Floyd Mayweather for announcing his comeback to action.

Mayweather shocked, and confused, the world on Monday when the 50-0 boxer revealed he would be coming out of retirement to fight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

Rizin will stage the unusual match-up at their annual 31 December show in Japan, although it has yet to be confirmed what combat rules Mayweather will be competing under.

Nasukawa is a rising star in Japan and has a 4-0 MMA record, and McGregor echoed the sentiments of many baffled fight fans in his response to the news.

Mayweather has said little about what fans can expect from his upcoming comeback.

I can wrestle, I can wrestle a little bit. I can box a lot a bit, he said.

We will just see. I can do it all. I can do anything if I set my mind to it.

I am pretty sure that when I speak with the guys from my team we are going to get on the same page so we can go out there and do what we have to do.
