Anyone see it? Bit of a mess, from what I can gather, Mayweather was told it was an "exhibition" match until right up before the fight. Predictable results tho...... One of the top boxers ever boxing with a kick boxer not even in the same weight class.................
Not sure what Rizin expected out of the bout.....

Money. $9M worth.

But of a joke to be honest to ever expect Nasukawa to put up a good fight against Mayweather. Fight also had no judges, no scores, and wouldn't be counted on their records.

In the blink of an eye...in a Tyson way...in the time it takes to make a minute sandwich...before one can say, before one can say...this fight, or whatever it was suppose to be, was over; not a bad way to earn a hefty $9M.

An exhibition?? Depends on which fighter or fan you ask. Mayweather is still undefeated, still has the hand speed, still knows a thing or two about entertaining the fans, and still knows how to make a real fast buck.

I remember way back then when I purchased a Tyson PPV for $50, and how I sat in my easy chair surrounded my all of the things that one can have for food and soda...settled in for my first and only Tyson PPV...and WHAM POW SOCK...the fight was OVER DONE FINISHED. WHAT!?!?!?! I paid $50, I mean I threw away $50. I felt I was robbed of my hard earned $50.

Mayweather must've been late for something else on his calendar that was far much more pressing that he had to get to or he found Tenshin not worth his effort.

Mayweather showed class when he said that Tenshin was still undefeated.


For me, this fight wasn't even a fight. To be a fight, both have to be fighting, and I mean fighting, and not one of the fighters being a punching bag for the other.

Yeah, I don't know what the organizers were thinking... Floyd looked like he was gonna be having fun the whole time (until he got hit.) This was the only match where I felt that Tenshin was nervous for. He did seem to go into the match with a lot more trepidation than he usually does.

To be honest, I expected it to be over even quicker.

Painful to watch. Hopefully it was a worthwhile match for tenshin to make up for all the knuckle sandwiches he ate. It was nearly as bad as those other one-sided fights videos where an average joe stupidly and/or drunkenly challenges a pro fighter in a ring. The big question besides the money is what exactly will this fight do for either fighter’s career.

Heh, now McGreggor and Nasukawa have something in common!
