American undefeated boxer, Floyd Mayweather, 41, has defeated his opponent, 20-year-old Japanese kickboxer, Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout which took place today in Tokyo, Japan.
The Mayweather knocked down his Japanese opponent three times in the opening round of what was planned for a three-round fight and knocked him out in just two minutes to win the clash.
After the fight, Mayweather who had initially pulled out of the fight over a misunderstanding between himself and the organisers and later resolved, said, ‘We are both still undefeated, I did this to entertain the fans in Japan, they wanted this to happen and I said why not, Tenshin is still a great champion, I am still retired.
‘Tenshin hold your head up high, I want the fans to support him, he’s a great guy, a great fighter and great champion.
‘Tokyo Japan, RIZIN is number one. Thank you.’
The undefeated champion was reportedly paid $9 million to participate in the exhibition. Mayweather has won 50 of all his fights.
