Floyd Mayweather shocked the whole world earlier this week when he announced he was going to fight Kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN 14 event in Tokyo, Japan on New Year’s Eve.
It was unclear about what the rules of the matchup will be and now Floyd posted on his social media profiles that he was blindsided by the Japanese promoters and he later found out about the rules.
The deal, or so he thought, was to perform a three-round exhibition before what he said was a small group of wealthy spectators for “a very large fee.”
“I am a retired boxer that earns an unprecedented amount of money, globally, for appearances, speaking engagements, and occasional small exhibitions,” Mayweather wrote.
However, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley believes that Floyd Mayweather was misled and duped by the RIZIN Fighting organization. Woodley recently appeared on TMZ where he said, there might have been a language barrier or communications problems.
“I haven’t hit him[Floyd Mayweather] up yet, cos if he was gonna be in something that involves kicks, he would probably have hit me up. When I saw the thing, I thought him going out there thinking it was an exhibition fight.”
“I don’t know if there was a language barrier as they were making the negotiations for this. Exhibition fight would make a lot of sense, because win, lose or draw, he still has his undefeated record intact”.
