Boxing great Floyd Mayweather on Wednesday cancelled a planned fight with a Japanese kickboxer, claiming he had been duped into agreeing to the contest.

In a lengthy statement posted on social media, Mayweather said he had been “blindsided” by organisers of the proposed bout against Tenshin Nasukawa, set for New Year’s Eve in Saitama.
