For now, we only can take Mayweather at his word that he'll stay retired and his 50-0 record will remain etched in history. With his hands down, Mayweather was openly laughing before opening up his attack.

And although it won't effect Nasukawa's record nor his reputation in kickboxing, being knocked out on the world stage must have been devastating and he was seen crying in his corner after the fight.

But Nasukawa never landed a meaningful punch.
