Nasukawa offers positive response to McGregor callout

Nasukawa offers positive response to McGregor callout

He was paid for a three-round exhibition that wouldn't count on his official record, but even if Nasukawa went hot and tried to turn it into a real fight, which he apparently did, Mayweather was allowed to compete at his natural weight of around 150 pounds to Nasukawa's 125 or so pounds. "Money" dropped a much smaller opponent multiple times on canvas forcing Tenshin's corner to throw in the towel and cashed in another hefty payday.

Anything Floyd Mayweather does, Conor McGregor wants to do better. This past Friday Irishman announced the birth of his daughter Croia. While many people were anticipating McGregor to call for a rematch with his rival, the former champion has instead set his sights on Tenshin Nasukawa in a move no one could have anticipated. "Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely. The champ champ", Conor McGregor recently posted on Twitter.

Meanwhile, former women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg also expressed interest in a possible Japan card.

The former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion followed up that tweet with an even more freaky post, declaring himself the real Django and seemingly calling for no rules.

Speaking on Twitter on Monday morning, the Japanese fighter thanked Conor McGregor for thinking of him, but provided a few adjustments to the Irishman's original proposal.

He's the right man to help me develop and get the best out of me". "I am so excited to be a bhoy and part of the Celtic family". Timothy Weah has posed with a Celtic shirt alongside his mum and aunt following his loan move from Paris Saint-Germain .

Now it seems he wants his own bout against the Japanese kickboxing star.

He added: "58kg, kickboxing rules would probably get us in the ring sometime in the near future".

In a follow-up tweet, Nasukawa then promoted his upcoming appearance in Japan's Rise kick-boxing world grand prix this year, and sent McGregor a warning: "So please watch your diet and wait for me!"

Nasukawa didn't take long to respond to McGregor on social media, though, and he welcomed the challenge with open arms.
