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

Floyd Mayweather sent Tenshin Nasukawa to the canvas three times inside the opening round

Before Monday's exhibition, Mayweather hadn't fought since he stopped UFC superstar Conor McGregor in the 10 round of their scheduled 12-round, 154-pound boxing match 16 months ago at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Twenty-year-old Nasukawa was knocked down three times in the first round, prompting his side to throw in the towel.

Mayweather is confident that he could do three rounds in his sleep and will welcome the lucrative payday for what should be a routine trip through the ropes.

Afterwards, Mayweather said, "I'm still retired". I did it just to entertain fans in Japan. I worry about entertaining and things, but once the bell rings, it's always entertainment. "Thank you to the fans you guys have been incredible". I am still retired, I don't look to come back to boxing. "Would you do the same if you were me?" It should be noted that the match was an exhibition. "This don't go on our record", Mayweather announced to the crowd in Tokyo. Tenshin is still undefeated - I'm still undefeated.

Nasukawa has a 28-0 kickboxing record and a 4-0 MMA record.

Promoters RIZIN have hailed him as "perhaps the best combat sports prospect the country has ever seen" and the 20-year-old himself had claimed he has a "punch that boxers don't have".

This is the second time Mayweather has been coaxed out of retirement. "Tenshin is still one hell of a fighter and one hell of a champion". That said, nobody should blame Mayweather for getting paid for essentially doing nothing.

So, when Mayweather was approached for a post-fight interview, the often-controversial fighter had the ideal opportunity to brag about his performance.
