And now Nasukawa has quite the response for McGregor.
Mayweather, 41, shocked the combat sports world late Sunday night when he appeared at a press conference in Japan to announce he would fight 20-year-old kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa on Dec. 31 at Rizin FF 14 in a fight that has yet to finalize a rule set.
In a profanity-laced Instagram post Monday, McGregor appeared as confused as anyone, calling the duo of Mayweather and Nasukawa “something out of rush hour 5,” a reference to the “Rush Hour” movie franchise starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.
On Tuesday, Nasukawa had a response for “The Notorious” (via Twitter):
Hello, Mr. McGregor.
My Name is Tenshin Nasukawa.
I am not Jackie Chan.
I promise to avenge your loss, so please watch my fight.@TheNotoriousMMA
McGregor, who is coming off a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last month at UFC 229, tried his hand at boxing Mayweather last year and failed. McGregor lost by 10th-round TKO in “The Money Fight.”
Nasukawa now has promised to do different when he meets Mayweather on New Year’s eve at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Nasukawa is 4-0 in MMA and 27-0 in kickboxing. In his most recent bout, Nasukawa defeated former UFC fighter Kyoji Horiguchi by unanimous decision in a kickboxing match.
