Tenshin Nasukawa has responded to Conor McGregor’s recent Instagram post with a promise that he will avenge his 2017 loss to Floyd Mayweather.
If you thought that this week couldn’t get any stranger, stay tuned.
After yesterday’s shock announcement that Floyd Mayweather will be returning to the ring to fight Japanese kickboxing/MMA prodigy Tenshin Nasukawa in December.
For those of you who are (understandably) confused by the news that the famed boxer will sign to fight in RIZIN, we delved into his potential motives in an article that you can find here.
Conor McGregor took to his official Instagram to fire off his response to the news.

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.
The 20-year-old Tenshin then responded with a pretty respectful promise to avenge McGregor’s loss to Mayweather – simply letting him know that he is, in fact, not Jackie Chan before telling the Irishman to tune in on New Year’s Eve.

Not much else is known about the admittedly bizarre pairing but reports from Tokyo have given us a sense about the massive payday ‘Money’ Mayweather can expect.
