Many people laughed at the fact that Floyd Mayweather would take on a relative unknown professional kick boxer all the way in Tokyo for a exhibition boxing match.
Mayweather made easy work of Tenshin Nasukawa, knocking him down several times before the ref steps in to stop the fight.
Mayweather made $9 million in just two minutes for that fight. Who’s laughing now? Certainly not Conor McGregor.
The UFC star wants some of that action as well, which is why he is calling out the RISE kickboxing featherweight world champion for another exhibition match, this time under MMA rules.
“I wish to go to Tokyo to face Tenshin Nasukawa in a Mixed Martial Arts exhibition bout,” McGregor said in a note to the UFC and his agents at Paradigm Sports Management.
“Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely, The champ champ.”
Many called the fight between Mayweather and Tenshin a “work,” but McGregor doesn’t care. All he sees is green.
