Now that I’m again on U.S. soil after a protracted and disappointing journey to Tokyo, I now have the time to deal with you, my followers and the media in regard to the upcoming occasion on December 31st that was not too long ago introduced. First and foremost, I would like it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, by no means agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nasukawa. The truth is (with all due respect) I’ve by no means heard of him till this latest journey to Japan. Finally, I used to be requested to take part in a 9 minute exhibition of three rounds with an opponent chosen by the “Rizen Preventing Federation”.
What I used to be initially knowledgeable of by Brent Johnson of “One Leisure” was that this was to be an exhibition placed on for a small group of rich spectators for a really giant charge. This exhibition was beforehand organized as a “Particular Bout” purely for leisure functions with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card nor televised worldwide. As soon as I arrived to the press convention, my group and I had been utterly derailed by the brand new course this occasion was going and we should always have put a cease to it instantly.
I wish to sincerely apologize to my followers for the very deceptive info that was introduced throughout this press convention and I can guarantee you that I too was utterly blindsided by the preparations that had been being made with out my consent nor approval. For the sake of the a number of followers and attendees that flew in from all components of the world to attend this previous press convention, I used to be hesitant to create an enormous disturbance by combating what was being mentioned and for that I’m actually sorry. I’m a retired boxer that earns an unprecedented quantity of cash, globally, for appearances, talking engagements and occasional small exhibitions.
