After Floyd Mayweather Loss, Tenshin Nasukawa To Fight Conor McGregor
Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa has already accepted his next big fight after his boxing match loss against Floyd Mayweather.
Last week, UFC fighter Conor McGregor took to Twitter to express his interest in fighting the Japanese kickboxer in Tokyo and asked the UFC and his management company Paradigm Sports Management to set up the fight “this instant.”

Shortly after, Nasukawa took to Instagram to accept the UFC fighter’s challenge but with a few conditions of his own. Nasukawa will only step into the ring if McGregor drops down one weight class down to featherweight and agrees to have a match based on kickboxing rules.
It is yet to see if the Notorious accepts Nasukawa’s terms for the match but if it does happen, it would definitely be a very interesting match with a lot of eyes on it. After the embarrassing loss against Mayweather, Nasukawa needs to redeem himself at least as a formidable opponent and this seems like the best way to do it.
