Is it possible to make $1 million per second?
Mayweather, the boxing superstar, insinuated Sunday on Instagram that he’ll be earning $9 million to face 20-year-old kickboxing prodigy Tenshin Nasukawa at a boxing exhibition match at Rizin 14 at Saitama Super Arena in Japan on Monday. The competition will likely be three rounds of three minutes apiece.
“What if I told you I was earning $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan do you do the same if you were me? “I love to call it a 9 minute walk . ”
Rizin promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara said before case that Nasukawa would wear 8-ounce gloves and Mayweather has on 10-ounce gloves for the bout. Earlier this season, it was announced that competition will have no judges, therefore there will not be a decision winner if it moves three rounds. There may become TKO or a knockout. It’s full contact, but won’t move on each guy ’s boxing record.
Rizin 14 will air on payperview on Fite TV, though Mayweather vs. Nasukawa won’t be accessible to watch at North America as a result of air borne rights issues.
Nasukawa an average of fights around 121 pounds. He’ll be quitting roughly three inches to this 5-foot-8 Mayweather, that battled conor-mcgregor this past year at 154 pounds. Mayweather may be the largest money maker in boxing history, whilst Nasukawa is considered as the future of combat sports in Japan.
Rizin 14 will also include a major MMA champion vs. champion matchup between Bellator bantamweight title holder Darrion Caldwell and Kyoji Horiguchi, Rizin’s champ. Nasukawa conquered Horiguchi, an former UFC title challenger, at a kick boxing match in September.
