Floyd Mayweather Jr earns $12.8 million for 140 seconds

t took less than three minutes for Floyd Mayweather to knock down his Japanese kickboxer opponent Tenshin Nasukawa three times in a totally one-sided bout of exhibition boxing on New Year's Eve.

Nasukawa's father threw in the towel after 140 seconds of the first round on Monday as his 20-year-old son bravely teetered around the ring trying to get up.
It was a quick and definitive victory for the 41-year-old American. Mayweather was gracious in victory, hugging the weeping Nasukawa and calling him "still a great champion".
Nasukawa, however, barely landed a clean punch against the vastly more experienced Mayweather.
The exhibition match was a lucrative one for Mayweather, according to the American, who posted on Instagram indicating he was receiving $US9 million ($12.8 million).
"What if I told you I was making $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan would you do the same if you were me?" Mayweather posed the question to his 22.4 million followers.
