- Floyd Mayweather beat Japanese kickboxing phenomenon Tenshin Nasukawa by a technical knock-out in the first round of a New Year's Eve "exhibition" bout that brought the USA boxing superstar out of retirement.

The rules of the fight stated that it will not go on the official record of either competitor.

As for RIZIN, their publicity stunt couldn't have gone worse because while they got a record number of curious viewers tuning in to one fight, one of the promotion's most treasured prospects was made to look foolish in front of their biggest ever audience.

The fight didn't last long, but the camera shutters were clicking from the moment Floyd Mayweather set foot inside the Saitama Super Arena to take on Tenshin Nasukawa.

"It was a challenge to fight with (Mayweather) - I was reckless".

One landed on the glove of Mayweather, and that appeared to sting him into action as he returned with a sharp flurry to deck the home favorite with a short left to the body. "I'm still retired, I'm still 50-0, and Nasukawa is still undefeated and a hell of a fighter".

It was an unexpected turn of events, and the rule set was even more freakish. "We had fun", Mayweather said after the fight. Mayweather was jovial in the opening seconds of the exhibition, throwing very lazy punches and smiling across the ring. After the third knockdown, Nasukawa's team threw in the towel, giving Mayweather the easy victory. "I'm still undefeated. This was just entertainment for the people".

But I came out with courage. He's still a true champion. Hamasaki, whose record improves to 17-2, has previously fought for Invicta FC, where she was the company's atomweight champion from 2015 to 2016.

"I want the fans all around the world to support him". He's a great guy, he's a guy 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.
