Floyd Mayweather Reveals Boxing Comeback Plans After Win Over Tenshin Nasukawa

  • Nasukawa vows to 'take down' relaxed Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather's quick finish in his latest fight has received quite the reaction from the MMA community.

Otherwise, his timing was fantastic.

Mayweather's $9 million earnings may pale in comparison to his usual eye-opening purses, but considering it only took him one round - and more specifically three hits - to TKO Nasukawa, we'd say it was time well spent.

I did not reach Mayweather at my own 20 years.

The fight descended into a farce when another dig from Mayweather left Nasuwaka staggering back like a drunk before falling down for a second time.

Mayweather unleashed a flurry of punches at his younger opponent. He was gracious in victory, hugging the weeping Nasukawa and calling him "still a great champion".

Nasukawa's father in the corner threw in the towel as his 20-year-old son bravely teetered around the ring trying to get up. Bayless then waved an end to the exhibition. This event took place on December 31st from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The bout doesn't count on Mayweather's unblemished boxing record (50-0, 27 KOs).

Nasukawa never had strictly boxed before Monday's meeting, as he has achieved stardom in his homeland as a kickboxer and a mixed martial artist.

Mayweather, who was barely touched, knocked down Nasukawa with a left hook, a right uppercut and another right hand to the top of the head. The sports mogul reportedly banked just under $10 million for facing off against Japanese fighter Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve.

"It was all about entertainment - we had a lot of fun", said Mayweather, who beat UFC's Conor McGregor in a boxing match in August 2017.
