Twitterstorm as Floyd Mayweather Floors Kickboxer Half His Weight in 2 Minutes

Mayweather, participating in a boxing exhibition against a 20-year-old kickboxer who fights 20 pounds below his normal weightclass, told media he was making $9 million to headline the year-end event in what equated to a sparring match.

Nasukawa is firing bombs at Mayweather but gets knocked down for the third time in this fight.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather has earned his famous nickname once again for pulling in a $9 million paycheck for a little more than two minutes of work.

Mayweather also ensured that the rules were changed because despite Rizin having it in the contract that both men would fight with their brand's gloves, Mayweather took to the ring with his usual Grand brand.

While Mayweather claims he's still retired, after this freaky exhibition and his constant teasing of more fights against the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov and other mixed martial artists, there's no telling what the man nicknamed "Money" will do next if the price is right.

However, just as abruptly as it was announced, it was called off just three days later. Tenshin is a true champion and a hell of a fighter. I am still retired, I don't look to come back to boxing. "But, you know, I did this just to entertain the fans in Japan".

The two took part in an exhibition fight that was clouded in uncertainty as to whether or not it was ever going to really happen.

Mayweather was late to arriving at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan and the co-main event and main event of the Rizin card was delayed until his arrival.

"You guys have been wonderful, thank you".

"I want the fans all around the world to support him".

The fight was the conclusion of a freaky buildup that featured Mayweather repeatedly claiming it was off and then back on again. As you can see, the five-division world champion apparently has no inclinations to return to the ring for a legitimate bout. He is a great champion and a great fighter.
