Meet Mayweather’s New Opponent, Tenshin Nasukawa. Here is what Joe Rogan, 50 cent and Conor McGregor Have to Say!

Floyd Mayweather has signed on to fight Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve. While the rules and details of the fight have not been released, I’m pretty sure that Floyd did not put himself in a position to lose. After looking at footage of Nasukawa’s striking, I’m pretty sure they will somehow relegate this to just a boxing match.

There is no way that he will allow strikes other than punches. Japan is famous for setting up special fights and Floyd hints that this could possibly be one of those special arrangements. He explains,

“This particular bout is a special bout as far as we’re giving the people something they’ve never seen before. The world has never seen Mayweather compete live in Tokyo. Throughout the years, I’ve seen a lot of fans from Japan come to Las Vegas and come to the U.S., but me and my team said, ‘Let’s do something different.’”

I would estimate that Floyd is not stepping in the ring for less than $50 million but he tried to downplay the money aspect.

“As far as the weight class and the rules, we’ll talk about that and we’ll get that situated within the next couple of weeks. As far as they said money is the motivation, well, we all know that I had a great career. I was very truly blessed to be in the sport a long time and to make over a billion dollars in the sport and to make smart investments.”

Nasukawa is much younger than Floyd at just 20 years old with an amateur record of 99-5. In the fight game that is a significant advantage; but as I mentioned before, Floyd knows this. I feel that he wouldn’t put himself in a position to lose. Ever.


The fight is scheduled on New Year’s Eve which is also a smart move. This is a Monday. If it were that Saturday, he would be competing with an Epic UFC 232 fight card, headlined by Jon Jones against Alexander Gustafsson and Cris Cyborg against Amanda Nunes. But even on Wednesday, I might take 50’s advice and wait for this fight to show up on Youtube.
