Though the win won't count on his professional record, Floyd Mayweather is still unbeaten after stopping Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their exhibition boxing bout at Rizin 14.
While the fight was billed as an exhibition contest, it looked like anything but as Mayweather unloaded on Nasukawa from the start. The 20-year-old kickboxer looked out of his depth in a boxing bout against the 50-0 boxer and one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of gloves. Mayweather walked through the punches of Nasukawa, dropping him several times before Nasukawa's corner through in the towel to stop the contest.
