Floyd Mayweather dusted off the boxing gloves and stopped Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their three-round welterweight exhibition match on New Year's Eve.

Twenty-year-old Nasukawa was knocked down three times in the first round, prompting his side to throw in the towel.

Undefeated kickboxer Nasukawa, who had vowed to "take down Mayweather" was left in tears in the ring but was hailed by his opponent, who claimed on Instagram he will earn $9million for the bout.

Mayweather's record remains 50-0 as the fight was just an exhibition and won't count on his record. So once again, I'm still retired. "We had fun", Mayweather said after the fight.

Most interestingly for our purposes here, if you take the two minutes and 12 seconds it took for the fight to be finished and break it down to 132 seconds, Mayweather made an even more impressive $68,181 PER SECOND for the fight - a lot of money even by Mayweather's standards.

Mayweather was late to arriving at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan and the co-main event and main event of the Rizin card was delayed until his arrival.

"Another day like I wake up, take shower, put my clothes on", Mayweather said.

Opening up the FS1 preliminary card was a lightweight contest between UFC Hall Of Famer BJ Penn and jiu-jitsu ace Ryan Hall . What I think happens is that he's in a very unique position, because he can play this thing between UFC and WWE .

Back in mid-November, buzz developed about Floyd gearing back up for a bout against Tenshin Nasukawa. Now, Mayweather will most likely resume flaunting his possible match-up with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The opening round starts off with Nasukawa circling towards the left jab of Mayweather, who had a very big smile on his face and was slowly walking Nasukawa down.

As Mayweather pummeled poor Nasukawa, the broadcasters sounded like the fight was something for the ages, gushing over how awesome Mayweather looked beating up a tiny opponent. "I'm still undefeated. This is just entertainment for the people", he added.

As for Nasukawa, he remains 28-0 in kickboxing and 4-0 in MMA, seemingly with a bright future ahead of him.

But Nasukawa never landed a meaningful punch.

A grinning Mayweather started supremely confidently and dropped Nasukawa for the first time with a left hook with barely a minute gone.
