Like Mayweather, McGregor Wishes To Fight Japanese Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa
Barely a week after Floyd Mayweather Jr., travelled to Japan and earned $9 million for defeating Japanese Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a less than three minutes bout, Conor McGregor wants to set up a mixed martial arts ‘exhibition’ with the kickboxer before this summer.
The Irishman took to his Twitter page in the early hours of Monday morning and wrote:
McGregor signed off the post by tagging his management company, Paradigm, and the UFC.
Moments later, Nasukawa visited his Twitter page to address the challenge, suggesting that the two meet in a 58-kilogram (approx. 128 pounds) kickboxing match instead.
The 20-year-old’s comments appear to be in jest, given that McGregor has never competed at a lower weight than 145 pounds in his career.
“I will fight [for] my RISE world GP this year, so please watch your diet and wait for me!” Nasukawa added.
