Floyd Mayweather clobbers Japanese kickboxer for TKO win

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Destroys Tenshin Nasukawa In One Round

Floyd Mayweather destroys Tenshin Nasukawa with swift KO in first round

Floyd Mayweather absolutely demolished kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawaat RIZIN FF 14 from the Saitama Super Arena (highlights here) earlier today.

Mayweather reportedly earned more than $US9 million for his 140 seconds in the ring, where he showed a much more aggressive fighting style than we've seen from his recent fights.

Mayweather, the unbeaten 50-0 boxing legend, took on a man 4kg smaller who had never boxed professionally. However, the fight was still worth $9 million to Mayweather, according to what he disclosed on social media recently.

There is still speculation that Mayweather could be interested in coming out of retirement for the victor of Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner on January 19th. Mayweather landed several body and headshots that knocked Nasukawa down several times.

Many were quick to poke fun at the farcical exhibition fight in Japan, with one user writing: 'Mayweather is an all-time great but there's thousands of 154lbs boxers who could have done that to Tenshin. "The fans in Japan, they wanted this to happen, so I said why not".

His corner threw in the towel so he didn't get knocked out cold.

Then Mayweather called off the fight just as quickly as it was announced.

Thank you very much for everyone who supported me. Tenshin is still undefeated.

Romil Chaudhary , a commoner from Haryana and the singer from Bihar, Deepak Thakur have got 18% and 15% votes, respectively. The melodramatic "bhai-behan" drama that Dipika and Sreesanth provided to the show seems to have won many hearts.

In 2017, it was the mega-money fight with UFC fighter Conor McGregor and this time around, the former world champion had his sights set on Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

While this fight will likely inflate Mayweather's ego and make him even richer, it won't serve any other objective. Tokyo, I want to say thank you.

The Mayweather-Nasukawa bout culminated an evening of more than a dozen fights, streamed by FITE for a fee, but not in the U.S. Fuji TV was the broadcaster in Japan.

With Kenny Bayless in the ring, a ludicrous size advantage and the rules favouring Mayweather, there was no way that Floyd was going to lose Monday's exhibition fight.
