Floyd Mayweather Made "Easy Work" Of Japanese Kickboxing Sensation Tenshin Nasukawa Last Night, Knocking Him Out In The 1st

After much doubt, a weird presser, a fight cancellation, a swindling story, a rebooking, and some more doubt, Floyd Mayweather wound up actually having that boxing “exhibition” with Japanese kickboxing phenom Tenshin Nasukawa last night…annnnnd it went pretty much how you’d expect for the 20-year-old from another sport. “Money” May toyed with young Tenshin for a minute, then immediately knocked him down three times in the first round before his corner threw the towel. It seemed Floyd’s large weight advantage (some saying he was up to 25lbs heavier than Tenshin in there, I have no idea if that’s true or not) played a big factor in those knockdowns as well, cause Tenshin was bumpin’ all over the canvas like he was Mr Perfect selling for The Ultimate Warrior.

Not a bad night for Floyd though, making $9 million in 2 minutes.

The fight was pretty lame, undoubtedly, but I will say I don’t think it was fixed. As Ariel Helwani pretty much stated here…

…I don’t think there’d be any real motivation to have the fix the fight and have THIS be the outcome, because RIZIN would definitely be better off never bringing Mayweather over to Japan than bringing him over and having him embarrass their crown jewel on the biggest platform possible. It just doesn’t make any sense. Nobody really looks “good” coming out of this.

Except…

…maybe…

…what’s that guy’s name…

…that guy who fought Floyd, the guy from the other sport…

…the one who Max Kellerman claimed wouldn’t land a punch on Mayweather that put on a competitive fight that went well into the tenth round…

…oh yeah.

Except the face of boxing, Conor McGregor.

He comes outta this looking great. Because this, a very similar situation to “The Fight of the Century”, now opens up the question once again…

Just how good is he?
