Before the first of the bout's three three-minute rounds had ended, Nasukawa had been knocked down for a third time, and his corner was throwing in the towel to protect him from further punishment (see it here).

According to Helwani, if the numbers were correct, Mayweather earned $4.5 million a minute for the fight or $9 million total for the two-minute fight.

Nobody knew what to expect when Mayweather agreed to a weird exhibition match against undefeated kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.

Since this was an exhibition bout, with no official judges, the fight will not go on Mayweather's professional boxing record. "I'm still retired. I don't look forward to coming back to boxing. I came back for entertainment for the people of Japan". "You guys have been unbelievable, thank you".

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

The Mayweather-Nasukawa bout culminated an evening of more than a dozen fights, streamed by FITE for a fee, but not in the U.S. Fuji TV was the broadcaster in Japan.

Mayweather previously said he was already making "seven figures" just by talking about it. With his hands down, Mayweather was openly laughing before opening up his attack.

Manny Pacquiao couldn't resist trolling Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Nasukawa was in tears in his corner after defeat, but Mayweather praised his efforts in a humble post-fight interview. "It's all about entertainment", Mayweather said, once again using his favorite phrase and forgetting that Nasukawa probably did not find much entertainment on the night.

Nasukawa entered the ring with a 28-0 kickboxing record and 4-0 MMA record. "I'll do that with these fists, with one punch - just watch". He was gracious in victory, hugging the weeping Nasukawa and calling him "still a great champion".
