May­weather fight canned

Taranaki Daily News - - Sport -

Floyd May­weather’s lat­est come­back ap­pears to be over be­fore a punch is even thrown. In a move that stunned the com­bat sports world, May­weather ap­peared at a press con­fer­ence in Tokyo ear­lier this week where lo­cal MMA as­so­ci­a­tion Rizen Fight­ing Fed­er­a­tion an­nounced he would clash with a lit­tle-known Ja­panese kick­boxer on New Year’s Eve. But in an equally shock­ing twist, May­weather is claim­ing he never agreed to the fight against Ten­shin Na­sukawa in Toyko and says he was am­bushed by pro­mot­ers. In an In­sta­gram post, the un­de­feated boxer, 50-0, claims he did not sign up for an of­fi­cial bout with Na­sukawa.
