Making $9 million dollars has never come quicker. A smiling and dancing Floyd Mayweather had the easiest payday of his career in dropping Tenshin Nasukawa three times in route to a comical first round stoppage earlier today in Japan.
Nasukawa, an undefeated kickboxing sensation, was turned into a hapless, human pinball from a cuffing left hook that landed high on the temple. Nasukawa careened to the canvas and for the next minute got bounced around the ring from every clean Mayweather shot.
Two more theatrical knockdowns off right hands followed before Nasukawa’s corner threw in the towel with 41 seconds left.
Nasukawa immediately burst into tears as Mayweather cut a victory jig.
Mayweather could have at least spotted the kid a round considering all the leeway he gave McGregor. But alas, Floyd is probably in a hurry to get back to the States.
Considering none of us paid a dime for this, I’d have zero problems with Mayweather doing a couple more of these exhibitions in 2019 for laughs and easy checks.
