May­weather out

The New Zealand Herald - - Supersport -

Floyd May­weather has called off his bout with Ja­panese kick­boxer Ten­shin Na­sukawa and says he was “blind­sided” by pro­mot­ers of the pro­posed New Year’s Eve event. May­weather posted a state­ment on In­sta­gram say­ing: “First and fore­most, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd May­weather, never agreed to an of­fi­cial bout with Ten­shin Na­sukawa.” The 41-year-old May­weather is 50-0 in his box­ing ca­reer. He has never fought pro­fes­sion­ally un­der MMA rules, al­though he did have a lu­cra­tive win over MMA fighter Conor McGre­gor last year.
