Welcome, Midnight Maniacs!
Tenshin Nasukawa said after his fight this weekend that he has no plans to partake in an ‘exhibition’ and intends to knock Floyd Mayweather out. The two are back on for a New Years Eve bout in Japan that, per Floyd, will be a boxing-only three-round exhibition, meaning it will not go on his official 50-0 professional record, one way or the other.
In a backstage interview he further elaborated that he plans on going into this as the Japanese representative since it's an honor that no other Japanese fighter has ever fought him. He reiterated that he has no intentions of partaking in an 'exhibition' and will KO Mayweather— "Money... might be alright?" Karaev Fan (@Karaev_Fan) November 17, 2018
The RIZIN CEO insisted this would be possible under the ruleset Mayweather has agreed to.
Claims Mayweather suggested cancelling the bout because its billing as a 'special standing bout' was taken as being an official fight by overseas media and there were misunderstandings around details of streaming situationhttps://t.co/6lhCdOLQUh— "Money... might be alright?"

Sakakibara is being at his slipperiness at this latest presser. He is now claiming that there is a language issue and 'exhibition' doesn't mean it's 'not a real fight' in English, only that it's not an 'official' bout. And that a 'real fight' exhibition is possible— "Money... might be alright?" Karaev Fan (@Karaev_Fan) November 17, 2018
In case you missed it, here is Tenshin this weekend, doing what he does best.

Does the much smaller fighter have a chance to knock out Floyd Mayweather in a three-round exhibition bout? Find out December 31st.
Will Nick Diaz be the same fighter when he returns to face Jorge Masvidal?
$4,500 a month or $4-500 a month?
Sean O'Malley tells me he makes roughly $4,500 a month gaming on Twitch. That's a decent living. #themmahour— Luke Thomas (@lthomasnews) November 19, 2018
This meme has been going around and yes, there are a lot of people who wish we could go back to these days

Holy shit @jvenb this is dope. Thank you man for the love. And the fact that it took a record setting 725 Rubik’s Cubes due to the size of my big ass face is also great for the ego . Amazing job! ・・・ @therock - 725 Rubik’s cubes. I’ve been wanting to create a Dwayne Johnson’s portrait for a while, he has been a big source of inspiration in regards of getting sh*t done, excuse my French. I was honoured to make this piece.
