    Sorry, I disagree. Cro cop on nye is an old school tradition. May weather fight is a sham of a contest

    Mayweather fight is a good one. I am looking forward to it. Tenshin is training to take him out. It will be interesting.

    Yes, but if you watch the "Confessions" video it shows that Tenshin is going for the KO or the win. He is not looking at it like a sparring match. I expect Floyd to win a decision as well but at least he is fighting an undefeated fighter who is an unknown.

    I don't think so because Sakakibara made it clear as well that this is not a sparring match. They will be fighting for 3 three minute rounds.

    I cannot even imagine how much should they pay Floyd then. Handling him the whole company over?
    To give him a legit opponent that he can lose to...thus putting a mark on his undefeated career...

    Yeah, a loss would be a mark on his undefeated career as unlikely as it may be. Just based on the Confessions show it appears Tenshin is coming to fight.

    It's an exhibition match, NOT a sparring session and NOT an official fight. An exhibition match can be as brutal as any official match.

    The whole point is that floyd's record is not in any way in danger. This will be an exhibition match where after 3 rounds of action the fight is ruled a draw. The only way to win is to get a KO or TKO. Floyd is not getting KO'd and even if he were to be KO'd it would not go on his record

    What will probably happen is that Tenshin will be aggressive and Floyd will move backwards for 3 rounds, that will give the Japanese Audience the Impression that Tenshin won the fight and RIZIN, Tenshin and Floyd will all be winners

    Hehe I was trying to google translate the world "ass".
    I'm sure I could've done much better work.

    His OFFICIAL record is not something he cares about. There is nothing official in the whole undefeated personality of his. This is part of his "gimmick", this is part of what he is - undefeated.
    Correct me if I'm wrong , but even in WWE he didn't lose to some giant wrestler, where he could've been scripted as a loser and nobody would've said anything about his official record, right?

    I think to have even a slight chance to lose to someone like Tenshin, they should've paid him even more than he usually gets.

    I mean, sure, but both are already under contract with Bellator.
