Floyd Mayweather was not messing about in his bonkers exhibition bout

Twenty-year-old Nasukawa was knocked down three times in the first round, prompting his side to throw in the towel.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather has earned his famous nickname once again for pulling in a $9 million paycheck for a little more than two minutes of work. The 41-year-old Mayweather was 50-0 heading into the fight, while the 20-year-old Nasukawa was also undefeated.

Once the fight finished, Mayweather stated that he is still retired and will not be coming back to box in an official capacity. "They wanted this to happen in Japan, so I said 'why not?'"

Thank you very much for everyone who supported me.

Mayweather, who hadn't fought since beating UFC star Conor McGregor more than a year ago, said he was retired and came to Tokyo to give an opportunity to a younger fighter like Nasukawa.

So, when Mayweather was approached for a post-fight interview, the often-controversial fighter had the flawless opportunity to brag about his performance.

Earlier this morning (Dec. 31), Floyd Mayweather defeated Tenshin Nasukawa in a convincing 1st RD TKO, arguably his first indisputable knockout since Ricky Hatton in 2007.

Shortly after this tough setback, Tenshin Nasukawa took to Instagram to issue a quick statement.

But Nasukawa never landed a meaningful punch.

As 2018 comes to a close, Rizin FF held its biggest show of the year with a new bantamweight champion and Floyd Mayweather taking down Tenshin Nasukawa.

Nasukawa was in tears in his corner after defeat, but Mayweather praised his efforts in a humble post-fight interview.

Nasukawa entered the ring with a 28-0 kickboxing record and 4-0 MMA record. "Tenshin is still one hell of a fighter and one hell of a champion".
