As 2018 comes to a close, Rizin FF held its biggest show of the year with a new bantamweight champion and Floyd Mayweather taking down Tenshin Nasukawa.

The American himself insisted afterwards that he is still very much retired and hinted that this could be his last outing in a ring.

The fight card featured a host of top martial arts talent from around the world, including Japanese bantamweight superstar Kyoji Horiguchi and hulking female grappling ace from Brazil Gabi Garcia.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather beat Japanese kickboxing phenomenon Tenshin Nasukawa by a technical knockout Monday after just two minutes of a New Year's Eve "exhibition" bout that brought the USA boxing superstar out of retirement for a big pay day.

Floyd Mayweather has knocked down Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa three times en route to a first-round stoppage in their boxing exhibition at the Saitama Super Arena. I want to thank God for this event, for my team.


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. As you can see, the five-division world champion apparently has no inclinations to return to the ring for a legitimate bout.

Mayweather defeated Nasukawa, 20, with three knockdowns before the end of the first round. It was a challenge that I fought for and I was reckless, and the result was a defeat, but I don't regret it.

"What if I told you I was making $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan would you do the same if you were me?" Tenshin is still undefeated. "Tenshin is still a champion and a great fighter". "I'm still retired. I don't look forward to coming back to boxing".

"We are both still undefeated", Mayweather said, per The Mirror's Jake Polden.
