Retired professional boxer Floyd Mayweather shocked the world when he announced that he will battle Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin 14.
Mayweather’s last fight was against former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor, whom Mayweather defeated via tenth round TKO in what was dubbed “The Money Fight.”
McGregor would take to Instagram to comment on Mayweather’s upcoming bout:
Is that a tracksuit or a sauna suit Floyd haha wtf. is it hot in Tokyo or what’s the story here? that climate change is no joke fuck me hahah What in the fuck is going on here? Who’s this little prick next to you ? That’s mad shit. Like something out of rush hour 5 or something. Chris tucker and Jackie fucking Chan back in this bitch. Fucking brilliant. Mad little bastard you are Floyd. Fair fucks to you mate. No lie. Fuck it.
Nasukawa also got wind of McGregor’s “Rush Hour 5” and “Jackie Chan” references, issuing comments on his own via Twitter:
Rizin 14 takes place on Monday, December 31 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan with no main event made official at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, while broadcast plans have yet to be announced.
