I lied about earning £6.5m against Nasukawa – Floyd Mayweather reveals

Floyd Mayweather has revealed that he earned more than the £6.5million he earlier reported from his win over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018.

The exhibition fight was over before the end of Round 1, as the unbeaten professional boxer knocked down the then 20-year-old Nasukawa three times, before his team threw in the towel.

Mayweather is due to face YouTuber Logan Paul later this year, and while speaking with Rob Moore, the 44-year-old said: “When I did an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. I think 40,000 people showed up for three rounds.

“You know, I told the people that I made $9 million and I admitted.

“But I think actually I made more money than that. I just tell people what I wanted to tell them.”
