Floyd Mayweather desmintió su pelea con Tenshin Nasukawa

Floyd Mayweather desmintió su pelea con Tenshin Nasukawa, kickboxer japonés con el que días atrás había realizado una conferencia de prensa para promover el choque.

Visiblemente enojado, el múltiple excampeón de boxeo aclaró a sus fanáticos que nunca aceptó dicho combate y que jamás había oído hablar de su fallido rival hasta antes de llegar a Japón.

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.

“Me pidieron participar en una exhibición de nueve minutos de tres rounds con un oponente seleccionado por la Federación de Combates de Rizin. Lo que originalmente me comentó Brent Johnson de One Entertainment fue que se trataba de una exposición para un pequeño grupo de espectadores acaudalados por una tarifa muy alta. Esta exposición se organizó previamente como un Combate Especial con fines de entretenimiento sin la intención de ser representado como un evento oficial ni televisado en todo el mundo. Una vez que llegué a la conferencia de prensa, mi equipo y yo estábamos completamente descarrilados por la nueva dirección en la que iba este evento y deberíamos haberlo detenido de inmediato”, detalló Money.

“Hicieron sin mi consentimiento ni aprobación”, sentenció. ¿Y ahora qué hacemos con el hype?.
