Floyd Mayweather Beats Japanese Kickboxer, Wins In First Round Watch the Fight On Blurred Culture
The fight many fans thought would never happen finally took place yesterday, as Floyd Mayweather knocked out his opponent Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round. The exhibition boxing match, which took place in Tokyo, had a stipulation that made it illegal for kickboxer Nasukawa to utilize his skills during the fight. This gave Mayweather the clear advantage, as the retired boxer knocked his opponent down three times in two minutes, forcing Nasukawa’s corner to throw in the towel. According to spectators, the boxer was never in danger and that he danced after the fight ended.
“It was all about entertainment. We had fun,” Mayweather stated sometime before or after his dance. “Tokyo, you were amazing, but I’m still retired. We’re both still undefeated. Tenshin is still a champion and a great fighter.” Later on Instagram, the retired 42-year-old boxer suggested he earned $9 million USD for the fight. He bragged that it only took him nine minutes to secure all of that money.
