Sharing is caring!

Biglang kambyo si dating boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. tungkol sa kanyang laban kontra Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa sa Disyembre 31 at sinabing hindi aniya siya pumayag dito.

Sa Instagram naglabas ng pahayag ang 41-anyos na retired boxer at iginiit na na-‘blindside’ lang aniya siya ng mga promoter ng nilulutong laban.

“First and foremost, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, never agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nakasuwa. In fact (with all due respect) I never heard of him until this recent trip in Japan,” bahagi ng pahayag ni Mayweather.

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.

Noong Lunes ay nagpunta sa Japan si Mayweather upang dumalo sa isang press conference at dito inanunsyo ang laban niya sa 20-anyos na kickboxer sa katapusan ng taon.

Iginiit din nito na maging sila, sampu ng kanyang team, ay hindi alam sa naging pagbabago sa nasabing event at kailangan na aniya itong mahinto bukod dito ay humingi rin siya ng paumanhin sa lahat para isang maling impormasyon na kumalat.

“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,” dagdag nito.

“I want to sincerely apologize to my fans for the 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.”

Matatandaan na kumalat ang balita na sasabak muli sa laban si Mayweather sa katapusan kontra sa Japanese kickboxer.
