Where there is Floyd Mayweather, there is often headlines and staggering amounts of money.

We've entered 2019 and nothing has changed on that front as 'Money' broke the bank yesterday afternoon whilst fighting Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a exhibition fight in Japan.

Despite the whole fight being labelled a farce by the majority of the boxing and combat world, plenty of people still tuned in to watch the bout.

Although, if you were just a couple minutes late to the fight, you would have already missed it and would have seen Mayweather dancing his way around the ring in celebration.

The fight was over before it had even got started, and that was because Mayweather floored Nasukawa not once, not twice, but three times in the opening round.

After the third time, Nasukawa's corner had seen enough, and they threw in the towel, ending the spectacle and sending a lot of fans home disappointed.

You could tell from the beginning that Mayweather wasn't taking the fight seriously, and why would he?

He's a multi-millionaire and this fight had no baring on his professional record, was meant to be just nine minutes long, and had no judges at ringside to even score the fight.

Simply put - it was a quick and easy payday for 'Money'. Something we all know he won't turn down.

To sum up the event, the ring walk for both competitors was meant to be 10am - Mayweather eventually got into the ring around 2pm.

He was then seen joking, smiling and not really paying attention to the referee's words before the fight, and then he got down to work.

As expected, after the fight concluded, plenty of people voiced their opinions, with the majority of them not being positive.

One man who also shared his opinion was Conor McGregor.

Where Mayweather goes, McGregor these days isn't too far behind.

The Irishman took to his Instagram account following the fight, and simply posted: "That 9 milli won’t keep you on top of my list for long, kid.
#Forbesy"

'Notorious' clearly referencing the amount of money Mayweather had made for the event.

So to sum up, the night was pretty farcical from a main event perspective, but once again, it's easy money for Mayweather, and he simply isn't going to turn that down.
