Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Earns $9M for 1st Rd TKO of Tenshin Nasukawa

Money Mayweather stepped up to the challenge of facing undefeated 20-year-old kickboxing sensation Nasukawa in this three-round bout but in truth it was never going to last that long with the two fighters way off in terms of boxing ability.

RIZIN's Nobuyuki Sakakibara said prior to the event that Nasukawa would wear 8oz. gloves and Mayweather would wear 10oz. gloves for the bout, while there will be no judges.

Floyd Mayweather came out of retirement briefly to score a lucrative victory in an exhibition boxing match in Japan over kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa that will do more for his bank balance than it did for the reputation of combat sports.

Mayweather toyed with him throughout.

The man they call "Money" was paid an obscene £$9 million for what turned out to be less than three minutes' work - not bad, eh?

Therefore, Mayweather said: "Tenshin is still undefeated". After three consecutive knockdowns in the 1st round, the undefeated Nasukawa's corner threw in the towel as Mayweather danced in the ring.

"I want to say thank you to Tenshin. This don't go on our record", Mayweather announced to the crowd in Tokyo.

It looked just like you would expect a 50-0 boxing legend vs. a 20-year-old kid to look. Well, when he's picked up a million dollars a minute, who can blame him?

Nasukawa was reportedly crying during the post-fight interview.

Thank you very much, Mayweather players who fought.

He won the world junior karate championship, made his professional kickboxing debut at the age of 16 and has a 28-0 record with 21 wins by knockout. The two faced off in a three three-minute round exhibition boxing match.
