Conor Mcgregor Compared Boxing Legend Floyd Mayweather To Chris Tucker And Japanese Kickboxer To Jackie Chan
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been hinting from some time at his potential return to ring or in MMA. This past weekend, news broke that Mayweather will be clashing against 20-year-old Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year eve in the main event of the RIZIN 14 card at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. This news came as a shock to many in the combat sports world.
Nasukawa who’s biggest combat sports stars in Japan has garnered a 27-0 record in kickboxing and a 4-0 in MMA. In his most recent outing, Nasukawa beat Kyoji Horiguchi in a kickboxing match. It’s unclear the showdown with Mayweather will be a boxing match or MMA.
Mayweather’s formal rival Conor Mcgregor didn’t take long and took aim at boxing legend for taking up a showdown with an undefeated kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa.
Irishman took to social media and put ‘Money’ and his opponent on fire. Mcgregor spits out some harsh words, called Mayweather “mad little bastard” and Nasukawa “Jackie f*cking Chan.”

Nasukawa took to social media to respond to the former UFC champion Conor Mcgregor.
Hello, Mr. McGregor.

That’s not the first time Mcgregor has made racially or culturally insensitive remarks.
McGregor is coming off a submission loss to undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last month. Immediately after the win, ‘Eagle’ vaulted over the octagon to attack McGregor’s corner, sparking riots inside and outside the arena after the ‘Notorious’ insulted Khabib’s religion country and during the build-up of their fight.
Currently, both Khabib and Mcgregor banned indefinitely by the Nevada Commission pending a disciplinary hearing on December 10.
