"And of course it's gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever".
Tenshin Nasukawa is back in play for New Year's Eve in Tokyo, Japan.
Floyd Mayweather Jr says he will face Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa after all in a "little boxing exhibition" and warned Khabib Nurmagomedov they will only ever fight on his terms. What I was originally informed of by Brent Johnson of "One Entertainment" was that this was to be an exhibition put on for a small group of wealthy spectators for a very large fee.
After announcing he would take on Nasukawa at the next Rizin Fighting Federation event in Saitama at a news conference in Tokyo this month, the American reneged on his commitment to the contest upon his return to the United States. "We're gonna make it happen".
With that, Mayweather said the fight was off. Just from me talking about the event.
Floyd Mayweather just can't seem to make up his mind about a proposed matchup against Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan.

"Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oprah [Winfrey], they still go out there and do different things and get paid financially great", Mayweather said.
Floyd Mayweather confirmed the fight when speaking to TMZ Sports. "This based on the basic agreement we initially did have with Mr. Mayweather". I want to sincerely apologize to my fans for the very misleading information that was announced during this press conference and I can assure you that I too was completely blindsided by the arrangements that were being made without my consent nor approval.
In announcing the fight was back on, Mayweather also added fuel to the speculation that his trip to Japan for the initial press conference and subsequent recension of the bout was simply promotional fuel by insisting that he had already made "seven figures" to promote Rizin.
As for the rules of the "fight, ' Mayweather said it would not surprisingly be a boxing exhibition with no kicks allowed".
