Floyd Mayweather:「事實上,在這趟日本行之前我從未聽說過他。」

早先傳出 Floyd Mayweather那須川天心(Tenshin Nasukawa)的約戰消息,日本 RIZIN 也很快證實,甚至 Conor McGregor 更對此約戰開啟了嘴砲模式,那須川天心也給出回應,然而就在整起事件鬧得沸沸揚揚的同時,讓人驚訝的是,Floyd Mayweather 竟在社群媒體上發出了聲明,且親口否認此約戰的成立,同時更指出他今回的東京行相當失望。

「經過漫長而令人失望的東京之旅後我回到美國,現在我有時間向你、我的粉絲和媒體談談關於位於 12 月 31 日,即將到來的事件。首先,我想要清楚的表示,我 Floyd Mayweather 從未答應過和那須川天心的約戰,事實上(無冒犯之意),在最近的日本行之前我從未聽過他。

最終,我被要求參加與 Rizen Fighting Federation 選擇的對手進行 3 回合共 9 分鐘的賽事,而 One Entertainment 的 Brent Johnson 起初告知我的是,這場表演賽僅有少數富有的觀眾會付費觀看並將支付大筆薪酬。這場賽事的目的原先僅是娛樂,而非演變成官方賽事,也沒打算進行全球電視轉播。

當我抵達新聞發佈會現場,我的團隊和我對這件事的新方向完全脫節,我們應該在這件事發生時立即阻止。我想要真誠地為發佈會上錯誤的資訊向我的粉絲道歉,並且我可以保證我也因這些完全未經我同意的安排受到出其不意的打擊。對一些來自世界各地為了參與這場發佈會的粉絲和與會者,我因為怕在當時反駁引起巨大的紛亂而猶豫不決,我真的很抱歉。

我是一名退休拳擊手,我靠著公開露面、演講和小型表演賽來在國際間賺得史無前例的金錢。」

按照 Floyd Mayweather 的說法來看,整起事件確實有不少可疑之處,要知道 Floyd Mayweather 與 Conor McGregor 的「Money Fight」至少為其進帳 3.5 億美元,而 RIZIN 能夠給出如此價碼來讓 Floyd Mayweather 遠渡太平洋一戰?總而言之,這起東瀛之戰毫無疑問應是確立告吹了,但可以預料的則是經過此事件後,世人將不會再對日本「格鬥神童」那須川天心感到陌生。

Now that I am back on U.S. soil after a long and disappointing trip to Tokyo, I now have the time to address you, my fans and the media in regard to the upcoming event on December 31st that was recently announced. First and foremost, I want it to be clear that I, Floyd Mayweather, never agreed to an official bout with Tenshin Nasukawa. In fact (with all due respect) I have never heard of him until this recent trip to Japan. Ultimately, I was asked to participate in a 9 minute exhibition of 3 rounds with an opponent selected by the “Rizen Fighting Federation”. What I was originally informed of by Brent Johnson of “One Entertainment” was that this was to be an exhibition put on for a small group of wealthy spectators for a very large fee. This exhibition was previously arranged as a “Special Bout” purely for entertainment purposes with no intentions of being represented as an official fight card nor televised worldwide. Once I arrived to the press conference, my team and I were completely derailed by the new direction this event was going and we should have put a stop to it immediately. I want to sincerely apologize to my fans for the very misleading information that was announced during this press conference and I can assure you that I too was completely blindsided by the arrangements that were being made without my consent nor approval. For the sake of the several fans and attendees that flew in from all parts of the world to attend this past press conference, I was hesitant to create a huge disturbance by combating what was being said and for that I am truly sorry. I am a retired boxer that earns an unprecedented amount of money, globally, for appearances, speaking engagements and occasional small exhibitions.
