$9m for 139 seconds: Floyd Mayweather cashes in against Tenshin Nasukawa

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Destroys Tenshin Nasukawa In One Round

While Mayweather reportedly made $9 million and looked to clearly be the more imposing fighter during the exhibition match, analysts and critics were quick to point out how Mayweather was fighting at a much heavier weight. "I'm still retired. I'm still 50-0 and Nasukawa is still undefeated, and a hell of a fighter".

"It was all about entertainment". "Thank you to the fans you guys have been incredible". I did it just to entertain fans in Japan.

Upon arrival, he changed the rules of the bout and mocked his rival Nasukawa in the ring before eventually finishing him after his corner threw the towel in following a third first round knockdown. "I'm still undefeated. This is just entertainment for the people", he added.

"I want to say thank you".

Mulvaney: $5B Border Wall Demand 'Came Down,' But Dems Walked Out
The Senate bill contains $1.3 billion for border security excluding any concrete wall. Media reports said Vice President Mike Pence had proposed $2.1 billion in funding.

According to reports, Yachi was taken to hospital following the fight, and missed out on post-match interviews.

Mayweather's comments pretty much killed talk of him being interested in fighting the victor of the January 19 bout between Manny Pacquiao, whom Mayweather outpointed in May 2015, and Adrien Broner. Mayweather landed a good body shot and a left hook and Nasukawa goes to the mat. The two took part in an exhibition fight that was clouded in uncertainty as to whether or not it was ever going to really happen.

As for Nasukawa, he remains 28-0 in kickboxing and 4-0 in MMA, seemingly with a bright future ahead of him. He's still a true champion. He is a great champion and a great fighter.

Perhaps Mayweather, who laid it on a bit thick given that Tenshin showed zero aptitude for boxing, will in fact remain retired from real boxing.
