Mayweather stops Nasukawa in 1st round, flooring him 3 times

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Destroys Tenshin Nasukawa In One Round

Floyd Mayweather destroys Tenshin Nasukawa with swift KO in first round

The far more experienced, bigger, and technical fighter that is the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather made easy work of his 20-year-old opponent Tenshin Nasukawa in the RIZIN 14 headliner.

Floyd Mayweather was paid $9 million to beat up a non-boxer who is significantly smaller than him.


The fight, which was held in Saitama, Japan, was scheduled to last for three rounds but Mayweather quickly swept aside his opponent.

Mayweather, 41, a former five-weight world champion who retired from boxing with a flawless professional record of 50-0 last year, saw off an opponent 21 years his junior.

The exhibition was up in the air after Mayweather appeared to back out after orgianlly announcing the matchup in November.

RIZIN's Nobuyuki Sakakibara said prior to the event that Nasukawa would wear 8oz. gloves and Mayweather would wear 10oz. gloves for the bout, while there will be no judges.

So there we have it. Floyd Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa went head-to-head on New Year's Eve and it was a tad ridiculous.

Thank you very much for everyone who supported me. I want to thank God for this event, for my team. "I like to call it a nine-minute walk thru", the post added. "The fans in Japan, they wanted this to happen, so I said why not".

For now, we only can take Mayweather at his word that he'll stay retired and his 50-0 record will remain etched in history. Last year, he knocked out mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor in the 10th round of a super-hyped boxing match.
