Floyd Mayweather has knocked out his Japanese opponent Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their three round Exhibition Match in Tokyo.

When the fight was first announced for RIZIN, questions abounded about the rule set for Floyd Mayweather's bout with Tenshin Nasukawa.

Floyd Mayweather forcefully sent Tenshin Nasukawa, who is less than half as young as him, to the floor three times in the first round of the contest before his Japanese rival's coach had to intervene to halt the fight. "I'm still retired. I don't look forward to coming back to boxing". "Thank you to the fans you guys have been awesome".

Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie, and they enlisted politicians to cut 'em a fatter slice. They are separate and intentionally different than filing one's candidacy and common early on in presidential primaries.

The one thing that is undoubtedly certain about the fight is that Mayweather made a big payday for a few short minutes of work.

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. Mayweather landed a good body shot and a left hook and Nasukawa goes to the mat. Mayweather was jovial in the opening seconds of the exhibition, throwing very lazy punches and smiling across the ring. But for his efforts, Mayweather earned a cool $9 million payday. I did not beat Mayweather at my age of 20 but I came with courage to the fight. Mayweather knocked him down 3 times in 2 minutes and then Nasukawa's corner threw in the towel. "I'm still undefeated. This is just entertainment for the people", he added.

Mayweather, 41, expanded on his enduring retirement plans during a post-fight press conference. "Tenshin is still one hell of a fighter and one hell of a champion".
