MANILA, Philippines — Hindi tuloy ang laban ni Floyd Mayweather kay Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa na idaraos sana sa Disyembre 21 sa Saitama, Japan.

Itinanggi ni Mayweather na walang napagkasunduan sa pagitan ng kanyang kampo at ng mga Japanese organizers.

“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,” wika ni Mayweather sa kanyang Instagram post.

Nilinaw ni Mayweather na inimbitahan lamang ito para sa isang nine-minute exhibition (three rounds) kontra sa isang fighter na pipiliin ng Rizen Fighting Federation ngunit hindi ito gaya ng kanyang laban kontra kay Conor McGregor na opisyal na 12-round boxing fight.

“What I was originally informed of by Brent Johnson of “One Entertainment” was that this was to be an exhibition was put on for a small group of wealthy spectators for a very large fee,” ani Mayweather. “This exhibition was previously arranged as a ‘Special Bout’ purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight nor televised worldwide,” ayon pa sa American pug.

Dismayado ito sa kanyang biyahe sa Japan at nais nitong agad na putulin ng anumang kumalat na balita noong Lunes.

“We were completely derailed by the new direction this event was going. We should have put a stop to it immediately,” aniya.
