Then Mayweather, 41, returned 16 months later for the exhibition with the 20-year-old Nasukawa, who had no experience as a boxer despite his success as a kickboxer.

Last night, Floyd Mayweather protege Gervonta Davis delivered a thunderous, first-round knockout win over short-notice replacement opponent Hugo Ruiz, retaining his WBA super-featherweight belt in the process. Time of stoppage is at 2:59 of the first round.

'But he has an exhibition bout with Tenshin (Nasukawa) in Japan in April. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN.

"He was really hurt, that nose was broken earlier and then he got hit on it again".

The bout was a mismatch, with Mayweather physically far too big to sustain any real damage against a fighter who was unable to use his most risky weapons - his feet - due to the rules imposed by the American's team.

"We're thinking May (for his next fight), if that's OK with him, ' Mayweather told reporters when asked about Davis" plans. He is going to stay active.

According to Indian officials, more than 200 people were arrested during a crackdown launched after the mass poisoning. Alok Kumar Pandey, district magistrate, said a feast had taken place where several of the deaths occurred.

So, another trip to Tokyo, Japan, for Team Mayweather.

"Tonight I just wanted to put on a great performance", said Davis, who posted his 12th straight knockout.

Nasukawa got absolutely destroyed by the former "P4P" king.

Do you think Tenshin Nasukawa and Gervonta Davis will actually fight, or is Floyd Mayweather bluffing?

Mayweather said that he earned $9 million - plus a $1 million bonus - for the exhibition with Nasukawa and said he would likely participate in future exhibition fights.
