Ništa od borbe Mayweather-Nasukawa

Nije dugo trajalo.

U ponedjeljak je objavljeno da će se Floyd Mayweather na RIZIN-ovoj prirdbi na Staru godinu boriti protiv Tenshina Nasukawe.


Na press konferenciji u Tokiju nije otkriveno pod kojim pravilima bi se borba trebala održati, ali su japanski mediji već objavili da bi Amerikanac mogao računati na nešto manje od 90 milijuna dolara zarade.


Ništa od toga.

"Sada kad sam se vratio na američko tlo nakon dugog i razočaravajućeg puta u Tokio imam vremena da vam se obratim, fanovima i medijima u vezi nadolazeće priredbe 31. prosinca koja je nedavno najavljena."


"Prvo i osnovno, želim biti jasan. Ja, Floyd Mayweather, nikad nisam pristao na službenu borbu s Tenshinom Nasukawom. Uz svo dužno poštovanje za njega nisam čuo sve do nedavnog posjeta Japanu. Na kraju, pitali su me bih li sudjelovao u devetominutnoj ekshibiciji na tri runde protiv protivnika kojeg bi odabrao "Rizen" Fighting Federation."


"Po prvoj informaciji koju sam dobio od Brenta Johnsona iz One Entertainmenta je da se tu radi o ekshibiciji za malu grupu bogatih gledatelja za vrlo veliki iznos. Ta ekshibicija je nazvana 'posebna borba' čisto iz marketinških razloga  i bez ikakve namjere da zaista bude službena priredba i da bude prenošena diljem svijeta."


"Kad sam stigao na press konferenciju, moj tim i ja smo bili potpuno izbačeni iz tračnica s novim pravcem kojim je ova priredba krenula. Trebali smo to odmah zaustaviti. Želim se iskreno ispričati svojim fanovima zbog objavljenih informacija na press konferenciji koje navode na pogrešne zaključke. Uvjeravam vas da ni ja nisam znao za odluke koje su donesene bez mog pristanka i odobrenja."

"Zbog nekoliko fanova koji su doputovali iz svih krajeva svijeta nisam želio stvarati veliki nered osporavanjem onoga što je bilo rečeno i zbog toga mi je zaista žao."


"Ja sam umirovljeni boksač koji zarađuje neusporedive novce diljem svijeta za pojavljivanja, govore i povremene male ekshibicije."

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.
