Mayweather Fight is Off
@floydmayweather deny reports that he ever agreed to fight kickboxer @tenshin.nasukawa in a main event bout on December 31 in #Tokyo , #Japan .
According to Mayweather, he was blindsided by @rizin_pr executives when they appeared for the press conference and the proposed "fight" was being presented in a manner that was never agreed upon. But on Monday Floyd, along with executives from mixed martial arts promotional company Rizin, officially announced that Mayweather would face kickboxing sensation Nasukawa in the main event of their New Year's Eve card.
Nasukawa has never boxed and competes around the featherweight limit of 126-pounds.
The exact rules of the contest were never disclosed or the details concerning the weight and assumed that their contest would be an exhibition under traditional boxing rules and perhaps using MMA-style gloves.
I thought Floyd was his own boss? Why wouldn’t these “conditions” be established before showing up to a press conference? 🤔
