Mayweather will not fight Tenshin
FLOYD Mayweather has not agreed to an official bout with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, the former five-weight world boxing champion has said on Instagram.
Mayweather seemed set to face the Japanese fighter on December 31 in Tokyo, but the 41-year-old took to social media to address the issue. He wrote: “First and foremost, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, never agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nasukawa.”
He added: “I was asked to participate in a nine-minute exhibition of three rounds with an opponent. This exhibition was previously arranged purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card nor televised worldwide.”
