Mayweather floors Nasukawa inside one round in mismatched exhibition

A grinning Mayweather started supremely confidently and dropped Nasukawa for the first time with a left hook with barely a minute gone.

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is out here making millions like it's nothing.

One landed on the glove of Mayweather, and that appeared to sting him into action as he returned with a sharp flurry to deck the home favorite with a short left to the body. I'm still 50-0. Tenshin is still undefeated.

There were doubts Mayweather would turn up for the event against a kickboxer less than half his age at Saitama Super Arena, north of Tokyo, for an event organized by Rizin, the largest MMA promoter in Japan. With his hands down, Mayweather was openly laughing before opening up his attack.

Upon arrival, he changed the rules of the bout and mocked his rival Nasukawa in the ring before eventually finishing him after his corner threw the towel in following a third first round knockdown. "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. "I'm still retired - I don't look forward to coming back to boxing but I wanted to do this to entertain the fans in Japan". "I'm still undefeated. This is just entertainment for the people", he added. "Tenshin is still one hell of a fighter and one hell of a champion". He's a great guy, he's a guy fighter.

"I told Tenshin to 'hold your head up high, '" Mayweather said. "He's a great champion".

The man they call "Money" was paid an obscene £$9 million for what turned out to be less than three minutes' work - not bad, eh?
