WATCH: Floyd Mayweather decimates Tenshin Nasukawa in the first round of their exhibition fight

Floyd Mayweather knocked the Japanese fighter down three times in the first round

Exhibition? What exhibition? Floyd Mayweather was in no mood for the full scheduled three rounds of his exhibition fight with Japanese kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa, knocking his absurdly smaller opponent out in the first round after three dramatic knockdowns.

Mayweather, who didn't exactly look in his usual fighting shape, predictably started the fight by clowning his opponent, flicking his shots out with no real intention and standing in front of his opponent, much like he did against Conor McGregor.

But after Nasukawa, seemingly treating the occasion as the biggest fight of his life, landed a straight left hand on Mayweather's chin, 'Money' decided to try just a little bit harder, proceeding to knock the 20-year-old down three times until his corner were forced to throw in the towel, leaving Nasukawa teary-eyed and slumped in the corner of the ring for several minutes.
