Floyd puts his foot down
FLOYD Mayweather says he and Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa will meet after all — but only in a nineminute New Year’s Eve exhibition.
Mayweather said the match in Tokyo would be for entertainment purposes only, with no judges, no official record — and no kicking.
“I’m in the entertainment business. That’s what I go out there to do,” Mayweather said. “I love to do this. I’m working out to put on a show for three rounds.”
Nasukawa joined Mayweather at his gym to announce the exhibition at Saitama Super Arena in suburban Tokyo on December 31.
It was the second announcement for the event, which was promoted as an actual fight when announced last month, though the rules were unclear.
