According to Helwani, if the numbers were correct, Mayweather earned $4.5 million a minute for the fight or $9 million total for the two-minute fight.

Nasukawa, who is undefeated as a kickboxer, is a huge star in Japan.

Unbeaten boxing legend Mayweather rocked up to the arena late, causing a 90-minute delay to the scheduled fight time, with a flooded hotel lobby blamed for his delayed arrival. "Thank you to the fans you guys have been incredible". The two took part in an exhibition fight that was clouded in uncertainty as to whether or not it was ever going to really happen.

However, although Nasukawa deserves credit for stepping up, these events are becoming increasingly farcical and fans are beginning to lose patience with the ageing Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather knocks dwon Tenshin Nasukawa. Mayweather's boxing record stands at 50-0.

Mayweather utterly destroyed kickboxing sensation Nasukawa with three knockdowns inside one round.

Right before Caldwell vs. Horiguchi and Mayweather vs. Nasukawa took place, Ayaka Hamasaki added another title to her collection. The sports mogul reportedly banked just under $10 million for facing off against Japanese fighter Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve. "It's all about entertainment", Mayweather said, once again using his favorite phrase and forgetting that Nasukawa probably did not find much entertainment on the night.

There are also unconfirmed rumours Mayweather could take on reigning UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who said last month any match-up would be "twice as interesting" as the McGregor fight.
