Floyd Mayweather defeats Tenshin Nasukawa in 139 seconds, earns $9million
What was supposed to be a three-round boxing exhibition match, ended in just 139 seconds. Floyd Mayweather was at this lethal best on New Year’s Eve when he knocked down the 20-year-old Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. The match at the Saitama Arena in Saitama, Japan left audiences spell-bound when it ended in Round 1 as Floyd defeated Tenshin.
Although this was just an exhibition match, the champion made some big money. He bagged $9 million (that equals to $3m per minute and $50K per second, which amounts to INR 62,62,65,000).
Floyd arrived late with a big smile on his face and maintained the smile even after the bout began. Though he defeated Tenshin, Floyd said, “I’m still undefeated; Tenshin is still undefeated.” He then advised Tenshin, “Hold your head up high.”
