Floyd Mayweather defeated Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a first-round knockout in a New Year's Eve exhibition in Tokyo on Monday. After the smoke cleared, it became a three-round boxing match, falling fully in Mayweather's wheelhouse.

Floyd Mayweather beat Japanese kickboxing phenomenon Tenshin Nasukawa by a technical knock-out in the first round of a New Year's Eve "exhibition" bout that brought the U.S. boxing superstar out of retirement.

Floyd Mayweather knocked Tenshin Nasukawa out in the opening round as their big-money fight turned into a farce.

"I want to say thanks to god for the turnout, my team, thank you to Mayweather productions and all the entertainment teams,"Mayweather said".

While Mayweather claims he's still retired, after this freakish exhibition and his constant teasing of more fights against the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov and other mixed martial artists, there's no telling what the man nicknamed "Money" will do next if the price is right. Hamasaki, whose record improves to 17-2, has previously fought for Invicta FC, where she was the company's atomweight champion from 2015 to 2016. I am still retired, I don't look to come back to boxing. "They wanted this to happen in Japan, so I said 'why not?'"

Government shutdown likely to last until 2019
The House and Senate were expected to convene Thursday for the first time since leaving Washington , D.C., for the holiday break. It remains to be seen, however, how Senate Republicans will react to a House bill that lacks wall funding.

Now, Mayweather will most likely resume flaunting his possible match-up with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Mayweather, 41, was taking on a fighter 20 years his junior. This don't go on my record - this don't go on Tenshin's record. As you can see, the five-division world champion apparently has no inclinations to return to the ring for a legitimate bout.

Thank you very much, Mayweather players who fought.

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. The bleach-blond kickboxer, who made his professional debut at age 16, said before the fight: "I want to be the man who changes history".
