Mayweather Absolutely Ruins Khan After He Labels His Fight Vs. Nasukawa 'A Joke'

Mayweather Absolutely Ruins Khan After He Labels His Fight Vs. Nasukawa 'A Joke'

Can we consider this another loss on Amir Khan's record...?!

A fight against Mayweather has been elusive as his fighting-style. He's failed to land a shot versus 'Money' despite campaigning long-and-hard.

Khan has now resorted to a verbal attack, lambasting his exhibition bout.

Mayweather vs. Nasukawa headlines a Rizin card in Tokyo, Japan, on New Years Eve, and it's left a sour taste on many boxing personalities including Khan.

"If you look at boxing and MMA - why is MMA and UFC surpassing boxing? Because they're putting the better fights on," he said.

"They're putting the fights on that people want to see and these are just joke fights what Floyd Mayweather is doing."

The Bolton-fighter added: "He's going to be getting a good cheque but it's hurting boxing isn't it? Boxing fans are going to buy the fight, think it's going to be a good fight, Mayweather is going to go in there and destroy the guy straight away (and) people will say it's a mismatch.

"The guy (Nasukawa) kicks well but you're not allowed to kick in this fight. If it was a kickboxing fight it would be different."

Needless to say, the 41-year-old has fired back and it's brutal.

"Everybody's got something to say about Floyd Mayweather," he said.

He added: "Do what Floyd Mayweather did, accomplish what Floyd Mayweather accomplished, do record breaking things like Floyd Mayweather, and then you can say what you wanna say.

"At the end of the day, nobody has done what I've done in the sport of boxing.

"These guys are getting $2million/$3million for twelve rounds. I'm making more than that just for sparring.

"Amir Khan, he faced Canelo. When he faced Canelo we seen him comatosed.

"I was an old man when I faced Canelo and we all know that was easy work, probably some of the easiest work I ever had."

Wow.

No messing from Mayweather who has also thrown shade at 'Canelo'. Two birds, one stone.
