Floyd Mayweather förnekar match i Japan: ”Skulle vara en uppvisning”

✅ Vändningen: "Jag har inte gått med på någon officiell match" ✅ Floyd Mayweather påstår att RIZIN gjorde något helt annat än vad de kommit överens om ✅ "Borde ha satt ett stopp till allt där och då"

Häromdagen deltog den obesegrade boxningsstjärnan Floyd Mayweather i en presskonferens i Japan tillsammans med MMA-organisationen RIZIN Fighting Federations president Nobuyuki Sakakibara och den 20-årige supertalangen Tenshin Nasukawa.

Under pressträffen blev det officiellt att Mayweather och Nasukawa skulle mötas i någon form av match med ”special rules” under RIZIN 14 på nyårsafton. Varken specifikt regelverk eller viktklass var bestämt, men enligt alla skulle detta färdigställas inom de kommande veckorna.

Nu hävdar Mayweather dock att han inte har gått med på någon officiell match. Enligt honom skulle han gå en uppvisningsmatch i nio minuter mot en RIZIN-fighter framför en liten sluten publik bestående av rika folk.

Stjärnan ber fansen om ursäkt för att han inte satte ett stopp för allt där och då. ”Money” gör alltså en helomvändning, efter att först själv ha spelat med.

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.
