Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is clearing the air on a reported comeback fight going down next month in Tokyo. The sports mogul has released a statement to address the hype surrounding him and fighter Tenshin Nasukawa.

On Wednesday, Money Mayweather issued a public statement revealing the New Year’s Eve bout is not an official comeback bout and suggested it might not happen at all.

Throughout the week, rap star 50 Cent and UFC fighter Conor McGregor have trolled Mayweather’s comeback fight going down next month.

According to reports, Mayweather’s decision came shortly after he signed a new promotional deal.

The boxer announced his decision after signing for mixed martial arts promotions company RIZIN Fighting Federation. Mayweather has never fought in MMA before and the format for the Nasukawa fight has not yet been confirmed. “I wanted to do something different,” said the former five-weight world champion. (CNN)

Mayweather’s opponent is more than half his age and has an impressive career record.

Japan’s Nasukawa, 20, competes in the RIZIN Fighting Federation, the company Mayweather has signed with, in both kickboxing and mixed martial arts. “It was a surprise offer but I accepted without hesitation,” said Nasukawa, who has a 27-0 record in kickboxing and a 4-0 record in MMA. (BBC)
