Floyd Mayweather Embarrassingly Knocks Out Tenshin Nasukawa In First Round

Floyd Mayweather has knocked out his Japanese opponent Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their three round Exhibition Match in Tokyo. The match had been billed as a huge clash between two unbeaten fighters from different sports and was seen as a follow up to the Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor fight that we saw last August.

Money Mayweather stepped up to the challenge of facing undefeated 20-year-old kickboxing sensation Nasukawa in this three-round bout but in truth it was never going to last that long with the two fighters way off in terms of boxing ability.

The American made the paying crowd wait, turning up over two hours late to the stadium before emerging for the fight. 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.

Mayweather boasted a four-inch height advantage over his opponent and ten pounds in weight advantage and this size difference made the match-up embarrassing inside the ring. 50-0 Mayweather does not get to add another digit to his record given the status of this match-up but he does get to add $9 million to his bank account, not bad for 139 seconds work.

You can see below for yourself just how one-sided this fight was, with Mayweather just rolling over his opponent over with ease, not even having to get out of first gear to beat this opponent. Perhaps these kids will stop calling the undefeated champion out now?
