Floyd Mayweather Embarrassingly Knocks Out Tenshin Nasukawa In First Round

Floyd Mayweather'I told Tenshin to'hold your head up high

Mayweather, participating in a boxing exhibition against a 20-year-old kickboxer who fights 20 pounds below his normal weightclass, told media he was making $9 million to headline the year-end event in what equated to a sparring match.

The discrepancy in the rules and Mayweather's dominance in terms of weight could naturally not go unnoticed on Twitter. I am still retired, I don't look to come back to boxing. "They wanted this to happen in Japan, so I said 'why not?'" We had fun", Mayweather said in the ring, apparently believing that Tenshin, a natural junior featherweight, had fun getting knocked down three times with an assortment of clean punches from a much bigger man. "Tokyo, Japan, you guys have been wonderful. The Japanese crowd were well behind their fighter as the two boxers entered the ring but that was as good as things got for the home crowd.

A delay of over two hours did not help ease fears that Mayweather was not going to show.

"We had fun", Mayweather said following his victory.
