We must Wait until New Year’s Eve to see Tenshin Nasukawa fight Floyd Mayweather. However, the Japanese kickboxing phenomenon already comes into being with Conor McGregor, after profound insults from the UFC superstar.
McGregor uploaded a photo Monday to social media showing Mayweather and Nasukawa at a press conference they had held to announce the match, which will take place near Tokyo in an unspecified format. After fooling Mayweather on his clothes, McGregor wrote in his caption “What happens if — here? Who is this little pr — next to you?”
“It’s crazy s — “continued McGregor and said” Chris Tucker and Jackie f —— Chan back in this b —-, “Comparing the duo with the stars in the” Rush Hour “movie series. “F —— brilliant. Mad little bastard you’re Floyd,” wrote McGregor. “Fairly f —- to you mate. No lie. F — that.”
Nasukawa wrote his reply on Tuesday and told his antagonist, “Hi, Mr. McGregor. My name is Tenshin Nasukawa. not Jackie Chan.
“I promise to avenge your loss, please see my fight.”
Nasukawa referred to the defeat of McGregor team Mayweather in August 2017, in a boxing match that strengthened the latter record to 50- 0. Mayweather had retired to take on the Irish in a very hyped bout, given both with massive payment days and even before quitting with Khabib Nurmagomedov last month for the UFC light title, McGregor expressed his interest in a rematch.
“About [Mayweather] has the bottle to overcome and handle this,” he said, as he said, “he said,” McGregor said in October (via ESPN). “I would also like to lock him again. “
” It’s either a straight MMA bout or a straight boxing, “he added at the time.” If they are looking for changed rules, I would rather just let the child back. “ Nurmagomedov, who kept his own undefeated record in filing McGregor in Ir bout also said he would like to take on Mayweather, but the 41-year-old boxer chose another option, one that surprised many when the Nasukawa match came Mayweather declared at the news conference that he was keen to strengthen his partnership with the Japanese company that hit the fight while growing his brand in that country.
“As for the weight class and rules, we are talking about it and we will get it in the next few weeks, says Mayweather, who has generally struggled at about 30 pounds heavier than Nasukawa does. “This is a special kind as much as we give people something they’ve never seen before. The world has never seen Mayweather race live in Tokyo.”
At 20, Nasukawa is less than half of Mayweather, but he has already achieved an impressive record as a professional fighter who has gone 27-0 in kickboxing with 21 knockouts and 4-0 in MMA, with two knockouts. His exciting fame ensures that there will be great interest in the Mayweather fight in Japan and other parts of Asia, while McGregor, perhaps inadvertently, seems to be paying attention to the US and elsewhere.
McGregor, however, criticized his comments, with calling him racist to resemble Nasukawa to Hong Kong-born Chan. McGregor has been accused of racial insensitive junk pretext, especially after taking Mayweather during his battle against the line “Dance for me, boy!”
McGregor later denied being racist and said, “Did not they know I’m half Yes, I’m half black from bellybutton downstairs.”
Mayweather has met similar criticism earlier, including calling Manny Pacquiao, The Philippine boxer he defeated 2015, a “little yellow chump” and said he would force Pacquiao to make him a “sushi roll”.
After killing McGregor in October, Nurmagomedov made it clear that he had been deeply insulted by his opponent’s fury and talked about Russia’s “homeland, religion, nation, family.” It contributed to a post-war team for which both UFC- The stars have been suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission when investigating the event.
