Saitama, Japan - It took less than three minutes for Floyd Mayweather to knock down his Japanese kickboxer opponent Tenshin Nasukawa three times in a totally one-sided bout of exhibition boxing on New Year's Eve. After the smoke cleared, it became a three-round boxing match, falling fully in Mayweather's wheelhouse.

Floyd Mayweather has pocketed $65,000 per second for a Round 1 TKO of Japanese MMA star Tenshin Nasakuwa, in a freakish exhibition match that turned nasty on New Year's Eve at Saitama Super Arena.

Under the headline: 'Was the Floyd Mayweather fight fixed?' Jesse Holland wrote on mmamania.com: "Most of what I've seen online about the fight being fixed stems from Nasukawa's knockdowns. It was about entertainment and we had fun", Mayweather said, with Nasukawa in tears after the fight.

Mayweather has won all 50 of his pro fights, while Nasukawa has an undefeated record in kickboxing and mixed martial arts. Mayweather has made a career out of beating inferior fighters.

In 2017, it was the mega-money fight with UFC fighter Conor McGregor and this time around, the former world champion had his sights set on Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa. "I'm still undefeated. This is just entertainment for the people", he added.

Mayweather, who lives in Las Vegas, distanced himself from the promotion in November but turned up for the boxing-rules contest that was the last of 14 bouts.

Mayweather adversary, the great Manny Pacquiao, appeared to get a dig in by saying he would "continue to only fight experienced opponents who are my size or bigger".

"Thank you Mayweather for fighting, and thank you to everyone for your support". I am still retired.

"I want to say thank you to Tenshin". He is a great champion and a great fighter.

Moments after the opening bell, the much larger Floyd Mayweather was plowing forward, clubbing Tenshin Nasukawa with huge power shots. "He is a great fighter and a great champion".
