WATCH: Floyd Mayweather leaves Japanese kickboxer in tears in fight
NEW YORK POST reports:
Floyd Mayweather knocked Tenshin Nasukawa out in the opening round as their big-money fight turned into a farce.
Kickboxing star Nasukawa was left crying in his own corner after being sent tumbling to the canvas three times in the first two minutes of the fight on New Year’s Eve in Saitama, Japan.
Mayweather, 41, boasted about earning $9 million dollars to take on Japan’s golden boy — and he collected his money with minimum fuss after making his opponent look foolish.
When the first bell sounded the unbeaten five-weight class boxing champion strolled out with a grin on his face as his 20-year-old opponent took to the center of the ring.
The American, who in the hours before the contest posted a video on Instagram advertising his strip club, then showed his disdain as he pawed out his hand and failed to throw a single punch for the opening 30 seconds.
Nasukawa looked completely out of his depth in his first boxing fight, swinging wildly in an attempt to land a blow on his opponent.
