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 Wishes To Fight Japanese Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa “I wish to go to Tokyo to face Tenshin Nasukawa in a Mixed Martial Arts exhibition bout. Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely, the champ champ.”

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.

McGregor Wishes To Fight Japanese Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa “Thank you very much for remembering my name,” Nasukawa wrote. “I’m honored that you would even consider fighting me.”

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.
