$6 million per minute: Floyd Mayweather destroys Japanese kickboxer

Floyd Mayweather

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

As for RIZIN, their publicity stunt couldn't have gone worse because while they got a record number of curious viewers tuning in to one fight, one of the promotion's most treasured prospects was made to look foolish in front of their biggest ever audience.

While this fight will likely inflate Mayweather's ego and make him even richer, it won't serve any other goal. However, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, the head of Rizin Fighting Federation, which is putting on the three-round exhibition, told reporters that "a misunderstanding" was behind Mayweather, 41, appearing to back out. I'm still retired, still 50-0. "Tenshin is still undefeated, I did this just to entertain the fans".

"I want to thank God for this turn out and the event". We had fun. Tokyo, you were wonderful, but I'm still retired. "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.

The American, who in the hours before the contest posted a video on Instagram advertising his strip club, then showed his disdain as he pawed out his hand and failed to throw a single punch for the opening 30 seconds. The sports mogul reportedly banked just under $10 million for facing off against Japanese fighter Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve. I'm still retired and this was just entertainment.

But Mayweather changed his tune after knocking out Nasukawa, who is 27-0 with 21 knockouts in kickboxing and 4-0 with two knockouts in MMA.

In 2017, it was the mega-money fight with UFC fighter Conor McGregor and this time around, the former world champion had his sights set on Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa. "He's a great champion".
