2019 IS off to a good start for Floyd Mayweather.

How quick? 139 seconds, in a Tokyo-area exhibition match Monday against Tenshin Nasukawa. Kornilov said he and his team are looking for a fight in the United States sometime in March.

The kickboxer- banned from kicking in this bout- was left in tears as Mayweather danced a merry jig, having stalked his opponent and sent him flying across the canvas like a rag-doll.

For Mayweather's last official boxing match, against UFC star Conor McGregor, who like Nasukawa made his boxing debut, the American earned an estimated £236m.

The odds in the match were, however, starkly favouring the Mayweather.

"So I'm a bit surprised seeing professional fighters reacting to it as if it were real".

Once he entered the ring, Mayweather appeared to be taking the bout lightly, smiling at Nasukawa and flicking a few half-hearted punches.

While the 20-year-old had to move from featherweight (122lbs) to welterweight (147lbs) to take on the vastly more experienced Mayweather.

"It was all about entertainment".

"Despite all the things that happened leading up to the fight, I came to realise how truly great Mayweather was".

Mayweather's second biggest earner came two years earlier when he outpointed Manny Pacquiao in a fight five years in the making. "Tokyo, Japan you guys are unbelievable I want to say thank you", Mayweather said after the fight. "I'm still retired, I'm still 50-0, and Nasukawa is still undefeated and a hell of a fighter". That size difference proved decisive.
