Amateur kickboxing career

It is said that he initially started learning Kyokushin Karate at age 5 as his father who worried about his timidity forced him to enter a karate dojo.[18] He won the Kaminarimon championship in Kyokushin Junior World Championship when he was a fifth grader in elementary school. After that, he became more drawn to kickboxing and began to train it.[19]

"I practiced karate until I was in sixth grade. I was winning competitions at a national level,” he told Bleacher Report. "I wanted to participate on that big stage. There was no specific individual that inspired me. I was attracted to the stage."

Nasukawa's kickboxing style is influenced by Boxing, Muay Thai and his Kyokushin Karate background. Nasukawa fights out of the southpaw stance, and is primarily a counter puncher, staying on the outer perimeter of the ring and landing as his opponents try to move in to land strikes. He is well known for his tendency to mix in acrobatic techniques like spinning kicks, rolling kicks, and jumping knees with high precision and success.

“I don't even want to imagine what kind of fighter he will turn out to be in five years,” one of Nasukawa's opponents, MMA fighter Yusaku Nakamura said in praise. Nasukawa defeated Nakamura in a kickboxing bout by technical knock out after Nasukawa dropped Nakamura three times. In the fight Nasukawa landed a counter spinning drop kick to Nakamura's face, breaking his nose.[20]

Tenshin amassed an amateur record of 105-5-1 by the age of 15 before he turned professional in kickboxing.

Nasukawa–Takeru rivalry

Buildup to the fight

Nasukawa has been calling out Three-division K-1 champion Takeru Segawa since June 8, 2015.[119] But due to contractual obligations, both fighters were not able to meet in the ring. At that time, K-1 and Rise were in a "Kickboxing Cold War" since 2010. On August 5, 2015, Takeru told the media that he was interested in fighting Nasukawa if K-1 can organize it. K-1 Japan group producer, Mitsuru Miyata, demanded that Nasukawa sign an exclusive contract with K-1 to be able to make the fight happen.[120] Nasukawa's trainer and RISE president, Takashi Ito, told combat sports magazine Fight & Life, that he will agree to let Nasukawa fight in a K-1 event but he's not willing to give up Nasukawa to an exclusive contract with K-1.

In 2015, K-1 officially made a partnership with the new MMA promotion, Rizin Fighting Federation. Rizin president, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, announced that Rizin is willing to make partnerships with every fighting organization so RISE began to work with Rizin as well. This deal made it more possible for a Nasukawa–Segawa matchup. November 8, 2015, Nasukawa had a knockout victory over French Muay Thai fighter Mike Alamos. After the match in the ring, Nasukawa announced that he wanted to fight in Rizin.[121]

On November 21, 2015, Takeru made his first defense of his K-1 55 kg world title against Charles Bongiovanni, he won the fight by TKO. After the match, during the in-ring interview, Takeru announced his desire to fight in Rizin, 2 weeks after Nasukawa announced the same. When Takeru returned backstage, Nasukawa approached him and demanded the fight.[122] The fight can happen in Rizin even with the Rise and K-1 cold war. During the press conference, Takeru mentioned that he did not recognize Nasukawa and could not understand what he was saying due to the crowd noise and thought he was just a fan. Takeru confirmed that he is willing to accept the fight if offered.[122] After this event, Nasukawa tweeted that Takeru agreed to fight him on New Year's Eve.[123]

On December 8, 2015, Rizin announced a fight between Takeru and Chinese fighter, Yang Ming, for their New Year's Eve event. At the press conference, Rizin president, Sakakibara, acknowledged requests to make a Nasukawa vs. Takeru fight, however, he said there wasn't enough time to promote the fight and promised to try to make it happen in 2016.[124] On June 18, 2017, after Takeru knocked out Buvaisar Paskhaev, K-1 commentator, Masato, expressed his desire to see Takeru fight Nasukawa but the 2 other commentators ignored his comments. 2 days later, K-1's official YouTube channel uploaded the full fight video of Takeru and Paskhaev but a few hours later it was deleted and re-uploaded without Masato's comments.

On August 29, 2017, Rizin executive Nobuhiko Takada said on Twitter, "Two of the biggest superstars of kickboxing, Takeru vs Tenshin Nasukawa should be made right now! If this super-fight will not happen due to the (sic) cold war, it is heinous crime! Let's make this! Make miracle!" A few hours later a K-1 broadcaster trolled Takada on Twitter. A few days later, Takada apologized and promised to never talk about a fighter from another organization and deleted every tweet about Nasukawa vs Takeru.[125]

On December 31, 2017, Nasukawa won Rizin's Kickboxing 57 kg tournament. In an attempt to quash the cold war and influence K-1 and Rise to make the Takeru fight, Nasukawa made sure the show was being broadcast live so Rizin would not be able to cut any of his comments. Post-fight, in the ring, Nasukawa engaged the crowd by asking who they want him to fight next and the crowd screamed Takeru's name.[126]

In February 2018, M-1 Sports Media, which operates K-1, filed a lawsuit against Tenshin, his father Hiroyuki, Rise president Takashi Ito and Rizin president Sakakibara. According to the lawsuit, it all started three years ago when Nasukawa called out Takeru to fight. More recently during Rizin's New Year's Eve event when Nasukawa asked the audience who they want him to fight next. They claim that it's an unfair business practice to involve another fighter's name from a different organization. And, they claim that many people has negative image about Takeru run away from Nasukawa, and they lost 6 sponsors. And, they file a damage suit 137,000,000 yen. But, 1 of 6 sponsors told Japanese weekly magazine Shukan Shincho "Our contract of K-1, we distribute Bento 3 times only. We can't understand why K-1 demands too expensive money".[127]

On March 16, 2018, Rise president Takashi Ito, former K-1 fighter Hiroya and his lawyer, accused K-1 Japan Group's exclusive contract, illegal based on the competition law. Hiroya's lawyer told the media, that the way K-1's contract work makes you not fight for a year for your contract to expire. Every fight you make with the organization, extends your contract for another year from your last fight and the only way to get out of the contract is not get paid for a year. Hiroya cites this as the reason why Segawa could not fight Nasukawa as he knows Segawa as a friend and will not back down to a fight.[128]

Nasukawa vs. Takeru

Rizin FF president Nobuyuki Sakakibara announced at a press conference, held on December 24, 2021, that the Takeru fight would be held at a neutral venue some time in June, in collaboration with both K-1 and RISE. Both fighters would have to weigh in at 58 kg at the official weigh-ins and no more than 62 kg at a second weigh-in held on fight day.[129] At the time of the fight's scheduling, Takeru and Nasukawa were considered as the two best kickboxer in the world, after Superbon Banchamek.[130] The official date and venue were announced at a second press conference, held on April 1, 2022. It took place on June 19, 2022 at the Tokyo Dome, marking the return of a kickboxing headlined event to the venue for the first time since 2006.[131] The rules for the bout were announced six days later: it was to be contested across three three-minute rounds, under the RISE ruleset, with one additional round in case of a draw.[132] he entire event was broadcast by Abema TV as a pay per view. It was initially expected that the two-hour portion containing the main event would also be broadcast by Fuji TV,[133] who later back out after allegations surfaced connecting RIZIN president Sakakibara with the yakuza.[134]

In front of a sold-out audience of 56,399 at the Tokyo Dome, Nasukawa won the long awaited fight by unanimous decision. Nasukawa knocked Takeru down with a left hook counter to his right straight in the very first round of the three-round affair, which proved the pivotal moment, as it edged the fight in his favor on all five of the judges' scorecards. The total scores were total scores of 29–28, 30–28, 30–28, 30–28 and 30–27.[6][135] The event sold around 500,000 PPVs.[136] At the post-fight press conference, Nasukawa confirmed his retirement from the sport of kickboxing and his transition to boxing.[137]

International Boxing Hall of Fame and World Boxing Hall of Famer, professional boxing promoter Akihiko Honda of Teiken Promotions Inc., have offered Nasukawa a move to boxing since he was 12 years old.[146]

When Nasukawa was a 14-year-old junior high school student, Teiken Promotions offered Nasukawa a contract including a signing bonus of more than $100,000, but Nasukawa turned down the job due to his love for kickboxing. Teiken Promotions still continues to offer him a boxing contract.[147] One of Teiken Gym trainer Yūichi Kasai, who made 4 world boxing champions such as Takashi Miura and Toshiaki Nishioka became Nasukawa's part-time boxing coach.

Nasukawa wants to fight both kickboxing and boxing. However, the Japan Boxing Commission doesn't permit Japanese professional boxers to fight in other professional combat sports. In September 2018, Nasukawa told AbemaTV, that he wants to fight boxing in other countries and stay as a kickboxer in Japan.[148]

Exhibition bouts

Nasukawa vs. Mayweather

On November 5, 2018, it was announced that Nasukawa was expected to face the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. at Rizin 14 on December 31, 2018. The supposed rules for this bout were not determined.[150] However, on 7 November, Mayweather stated that the fight had been announced in error due to a misunderstanding (claiming that he had never even heard of Nasukawa until the press conference), and that he had been booked for an exhibition fight for "a small group of wealthy spectators" that was not meant to be televised.[151][152] On November 16, 2018, Mayweather announced that the fight is back on. It was to be a 3-round exhibition boxing match.[153][154] “There was a penalty clause in the contract of an undisclosed amount if he is to use any moves of an MMA nature.”[155] In other words, if Tenshin had the urge to throw a kick, he would be heavily fined. Nasukawa landed the first punch of the fight, but Mayweather Jr retaliated with a left hook behind Nasukawa's ear that immediately sent him to the canvas.[156] "This blew my mind. He hit me behind the ear. I was surprised. Right on the button." Nasukawa later said. Within 140 seconds of the one-sided fight, Nasukawa was knocked down 3 times in the first round and his corner subsequently threw in the towel.[157][158]
