Undefeated in 50 fights and a world champion in five boxing weight divisions, while Nasukawa has a 27-0 record with 21 knockouts in kickboxing and 4-0 with two knockouts in MMA. Said the rules of the bout have yet to be clarified.
“This is my biggest event in life so far and I’m very happy this is going to materialize.” said Nasukawa. “I’m a little surprised myself. Nobody has defeated my opponent in the past and I’d like to be the man who makes history. My punch can change history.”
