Floyd Mayweather makes $9 million in 139 seconds

MONEY MAN: Floyd Mayweather

2019 IS off to a good start for Floyd Mayweather.

The American boxer took to social media to share videos of his huge bundles of Japanese Yen after earning $9 million dollars for his win over kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an boxing match in Tokyo.

The 41-year-old knocked Nasukawa to the floor three times in just over two minutes before his young opponent's corner threw in the towel.

Nasukawa, a kick boxer, ended the contest in tears whilst Mayweather grinned from ear to ear inside the 37,000-seater arena.

“It was all about entertainment. We had fun,”said Maywaether. “I’m still retired. I don’t look forward to coming back to boxing. I did it just to entertain fans in Japan. I’m still retired, I’m still 50-0, and Nasukawa is still undefeated and a hell of a fighter.”

Mayweather’s last big payday was a match against Conor McGregor in August 2017, where he earned $100 million.

Many took to social media to share their thoughts on the boxing legend’s performance - see their reactions below:
