Japanese MMA fighter Tenshin Nasukawa held an exhibition match against the legendary American boxer Floyd Mayweather, but could not get even one round - 2 knockdowns and the third was a knockout.

The tournament was held in Japan according to the rules of Boxing within the fighting Association Rizin 14. Initially there were rumors that the American will sign on full fight on the mixed single combats, but Floyd categorically refused. Even here, today was supposed to be only 3 round for 3 minutes. Mayweather was relaxed, smiling in the ring, and according to external data significantly superior to the young opponent. The day before Floyd was heavier at 4 pounds, but during the battle, the difference was even more noticeable. After each blow of the American Tenshin flew away on some meters. So many blows he has not missed in just a couple of minutes of battle:

After 3 knockdowns judges decided not to continue this beating and recorded a technical knockout. Nasukawa only 20 years old and while in MMA he has some success (+4-0), the box it of course was foreign territory. After the defeat, he burst into tears in the ring and when he was taken away, too, hid his face under a towel, and tears flowed like water. Well what can I say - won by the favourite and it is still good that the fight was exhibition: the first 30 seconds, the Floyd just went in the ring and openly horsing around, bared his teeth and pretended that he doesn't care what's going on. According to rumors, the American boxer will receive about $ 9 million as a fee for this fight.
