He hit, he won, he took his bag and left. Floyd Mayweather defeated Japanese kickboxing champion Tenshina Nasukawa on Monday due to a technical knockout in the first round of the spectacular circus show "New Year" in which the boxer temporarily refused his resignation.
Mayweather threw Nasukawa three times on the canvas in the first round before the local coach rushed to stop the fight.
The fight, which will be quickly forgotten, has never been a real test for Mayweather, and at the moment his life is more interested in raising money than sports.
With much greater weight and reach than his rival, who also had to adapt to a discipline that was strange to him, he found clear differences from the very beginning of the fight, which – to be more serious – arrived three hours later.
In any case, the battle in Saitama gave the Japanese a unique opportunity to see the legend next to boxing. Of course, the show was too far from the best in his career.
