May­weather up for Tokyo show

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

FLOYD May­weather Jr says he and Ja­panese kick­box­ing star Ten­shin Na­sukawa will meet af­ter all – but only in a nine- minute 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 to an­nounce the ex­hi­bi­tion.
