Floyd Mayweather Floors Tenshin Nasukawa To Rake In Ksh900 Million In Minutes

Floyd Mayweather Floors Tenshin Nasukawa To Rake In Ksh900 Million In Minutes”

Floyd "Money" Mayweather has been showing off some of the financial fruits of his recent labor by flashing wads of yen he presumably earned when destroying Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in their New Year's Eve bout.

Watch Floyd Mayweather's post-fight press conference below.

Nasukawa needed time to recover, but Mayweather continued to swarm, and moments before the bell rang to end the first round his corner threw in the towel.

"The days since the fight was confirmed have been enjoyable but with concerns, and I spent the time thinking about many things". The victory earned the 41-year-old a hefty amount of Dollars 9 million.

And so, fresh from coming out of his first retirement to beat UFC star Conor McGregor (professional boxing record 0-1) in August 2017, Mayweather landed a fresh body blow to boxing's legitimacy with another easy pay day.

Mayweather, 41, the flawless five-division boxing world champion, retired from sports in 2015.

Now, the questions are will the undefeated legendary boxer step back into the boxing ring, entertain another possible MMA bout under boxing rules or finally be done with the fight game for good?

The American boxer at first appeared not to be taking the fight seriously, grinning at his opponent and aiming only soft punches at him.

Nasukawa was dismantled in just one round in Tokyo yesterday as Mayweather pocketed a reported $9million for the exhibition bout. "We had fun", Mayweather said after the fight, via ESPN.com. I am disappointed at myself since I thought I could have done better.

It was announced out of the blue on November 5, with Mayweather saying it had "always been a goal of mine to go outside out of the USA and display my talent".

Many boxing fans are expressing criticism towards the American fighter for the event which some are calling "rigged", reports NZ Herald. Kornilov said he and his team are looking for a fight in the United States sometime in March.
