Sounded like it was too good to be true.  What a shyster.

Floyd finally found the letters on the keyboard and googled "Tenshin" and now doesn't want any of this MMA ****.

I fully believe Floyd's story about how this went down. They used him to get the world to google their young star. It worked.

I believe nothing when it comes to Floyd and how he does business.

Fair enough. It's possible Floyd wasn't tricked and was in on the whole ruse. Either way the whole point was clearly to bring attention to Rizin and Nasukawa. There was never any intention of actually having a fight.

@analias

I don't agree with that.  I think the fight was going to happen on a hand shake agreement and then RIZIN hit him with the "special rules" **** and he backed out before an official contract signing.

So you think there's a chance Rizin thought Floyd would actually accept the fight with special rules? They knew damn well this was never going to happen.

i know how things are with the economies and how people are really really struggling, (buy Digibyte/Łtc and silver and hodl? not financial advice) i remember the 08 crash well and  last while i started watching some youtube channels like "The Money GPS" and "Financial Turmoil Explained" and Greg Mannarino to learn better, but sorry thats beside the point - for the life of me i cant fathom the idea Mayweather and co could be low on money.. or something of that  nature..i mean it just doesnt make sense in my brain.... not saying its true or untrue.. i dunno... theres like a few 100 million $ there..... right ?... (Floyd?..)
.. also no such thing as bad publicity and all that do yeah!!? Tenshjn definitly got  a nice pop i saw it myself in real time!! on his social media platforms

Yeah man, looks like you were right. I do still wonder what the whole story behind the scenes was though.
