MMA fighter Yusuke Yachi has suffered a horrifying eye-injury while fighting on the Floyd Mayweather/ Tenshin Nasukawa under-card earlier today.

Mayweather has won all 50 of his pro fights, while Nasukawa has an undefeated record in kickboxing and mixed martial arts.

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is out here making millions like it's nothing.

There is still speculation that Mayweather could be interested in coming out of retirement for the victor of Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner on January 19th.

Sensing his opponent was struggling, Mayweather stepped in for the kill, unleashing a flurry of punches that left Nasukawa reeling again within just two minutes of the bout and facing his second standing count after a huge right hook to the head.

Right before Caldwell vs. Horiguchi and Mayweather vs. Nasukawa took place, Ayaka Hamasaki added another title to her collection.

"It was all about entertainment - we had fun", Mayweather said in the ring following his win. I did it just to entertain fans in Japan. After the third knockdown, Nasukawa's team threw in the towel, giving Mayweather the easy victory.

Mayweather rocked up to the arena late, causing a 90-minute delay to the scheduled fight time, with a flooded hotel lobby blamed for his delayed arrival.

As Mayweather pummeled poor Nasukawa, the broadcasters sounded like the fight was something for the ages, gushing over how awesome Mayweather looked beating up a tiny opponent. "Thank you to the fans you guys have been unbelievable". Tokyo, I want to say thank you. Tenshin is still undefeated - I'm still undefeated.

Since this was an exhibition bout, with no official judges, the fight will not go on Mayweather's professional boxing record.

In 2017, it was the mega-money fight with UFC fighter Conor McGregor and this time around, the former world champion had his sights set on Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
