Floyd Mayweather Reacts To Knocking Out Tenshin In Round 1

Floyd Mayweather Jr. right holds the hand of Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa after beating him in their three-round exhibition match on New Year’s Eve

Despite the restrictive rules of this bout, which effectively took away Nasukawa's most risky weapons, it was all made quite interesting by the fact that Floyd Mayweather seemed to be taking it very lightly, while Nasukawa seemed to be approaching it with extreme focus and determination.

"Money" was very complimentary of the Japanese in his post-fight interview.

Now, the questions are will the undefeated legendary boxer step back into the boxing ring, entertain another possible MMA bout under boxing rules or finally be done with the fight game for good?

According to Helwani, if the numbers were correct, Mayweather earned $4.5 million a minute for the fight or $9 million total for the two-minute fight.

Therefore, Mayweather said: "Tenshin is still undefeated".

The undefeated Floyd Mayweather keeps stacking the wins, as the world champion has just defeated kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in convincing fashion.

"This won't go on my record". "They wanted this to happen in Japan, so I said 'why not?'" Tokyo, I want to say thank you.

Mayweather looked sharp despite being in retirement after stopping the UFC's Conor McGregor in his last professional boxing match 16 months ago.

Sensing his opponent was struggling, Mayweather stepped in for the kill, unleashing a flurry of punches that left Nasukawa reeling again within just two minutes of the bout and facing his second standing count.

This was just an odd matchup and fight when it was announced.
