Mayweather se estrenará en el campo de las artes marciales mixtas en Tokio, Japón

La leyenda del boxeo, Floyd Mayweather, celebrará su primer combate de Artes Marciales Mixtas el 31 de diciembre en Tokio (Japón), según anunció este lunes durante una rueda de prensa la organización de MMA japonesa Rizin Fight Fight Federation.

El estadounidense se enfrentará al japonés Tenshin Nasukawa, de 20 años, en el marco del evento Rizin 14, en el Saitama Super Arena.

Anteriormente, el propio boxeador ya había confirmado su participación en el evento, al publicar en su cuenta de Instagram dos fotos en las que aparece con unos guantes con la inscripción ‘Rizin’.

Now that I am back on U.S. soil after a long and disappointing trip to Tokyo, I now have the time to address you, my fans and the media in regard to the upcoming event on December 31st that was recently announced. First and foremost, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, never agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nasukawa. In fact (with all due respect) I have never heard of him until this recent trip to Japan. Ultimately, I was asked to participate in a 9 minute exhibition of 3 rounds with an opponent selected by the "Rizen Fighting Federation". What I was originally informed of by Brent Johnson of "One Entertainment" was that this was to be an exhibition put on for a small group of wealthy spectators for a very large fee. This exhibition was previously arranged as a "Special Bout" purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card nor televised worldwide. Once I arrived to the press conference, my team and I were completely derailed by the new direction this event was going and we should have put a stop to it immediately. I want to sincerely apologize to my fans for the very misleading information that was announced during this press conference and I can assure you that I too was completely blindsided by the arrangements that were being made without my consent nor approval. For the sake of the several fans and attendees that flew in from all parts of the world to attend this past press conference, I was hesitant to create a huge disturbance by combating what was being said and for that I am truly sorry. I am a retired boxer that earns an unprecedented amount of money, globally, for appearances, speaking engagements and occasional small exhibitions.
