Floyd Mayweather fought Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin 14 on New Years Eve in an ‘exhibition’ contest. Mayweather demolished Nasukawa, dropping him three times en route to his corner throwing the towel and Nasukawa showing histrionics on national television. I was wrong about a central feature of the contest, but note there is some silver lining in the entire farce. Also, while one can never say for certain, the evidence for the bout being fixed or thrown is thin.
