Mayweather Stops Nasukawa At RIZIN 14

Mayweather Stops Nasukawa At RIZIN 14

Floyd Mayweather made short work of Japanese kick-boxing star Tenshin Nasukasa in their exhibition fight at RIZIN 14 in Japan.

Throughout his career, Mayweather has fought at a number of different weight classes (super featherweight through light middleweight), while in professional boxing Nasukawa would be listed as a featherweight. So once again, I'm still retired.

"What if I told you I was making $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan would you do the same if you were me?"

The American said in quotes published by BBC Sport: "It was all about entertainment - we had a lot of fun".

It was meant to be a boxing exhibition but turned out to be a one way beat down in favor of Mayweather in the end.

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

Mayweather defeated Nasukawa via a first-round TKO.

Mayweather said after: "Tenshin hold your head up high".

Floyd Mayweather knocks down Tenshin Nasukawa. Nasukawa, however, barely landed a clean punch against the vastly more experienced Mayweather.

More than anything, though, Pacquiao hopes beating Broner lures Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) out of retirement for a rematch later in 2019.

Upon arrival, he changed the rules of the bout and mocked his rival Nasukawa in the ring before eventually finishing him after his corner threw the towel in following a third first round knockdown.

Nasukawa entered the ring with a 28-0 kickboxing record and 4-0 MMA record. I'm still retired and this was just entertainment. Hamasaki, whose record improves to 17-2, has previously fought for Invicta FC, where she was the company's atomweight champion from 2015 to 2016.
