Floyd Mayweather on New Year’s Eve just gone travelled to Tokyo, Japan to take on a kick boxer / MMA fighter by the name of Tenshin in a three round exhibition bout.
Mayweather proceeded to wipe out the 20 year old in the very first round after the towel was thrown in.
The American was reported to have pocketed a cool $9 million dollars for a little over two minutes of work in the end.
Mayweather has now finally taken issue with those who have criticized him and the decision to have the exhibition at all — as well as addressing his haters with the following:
Mayweather is now linked to a legitimate, professional boxing match in the form of a rematch with Manny Pacquiao later this year.
Sources close to Boxing News and Views say light discussions towards a July showdown are happening at this time should Pacquiao defeat Adrien Broner on January 19th in Las Vegas.
While many have criticised a potential rematch between the two, there is no denying that it would still draw huge numbers from casual sports fans as well as provide both men with a chance to erase the terrible taste in the mouth their first fight left in 2015.
All be it on the other side of 40 now.
Floyd Mayweather has an undefeated professional record of 50-0 at this time.
