DISRESPECT! Japanese host throws flowers at Floyd Mayweather before an exhibition fight against Mikuru Asakura

Floyd Mayweather recently returned to boxing action against Japanese MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in an exhibition boxing bout at the RIZIN 38 MMA event at Saitama Super Arena.

Mayweather has been taking part in these exhibition bouts a lot lately and it’s keeping his fans and bank account entertained. Before the fight against Asakura, Mayweather was supposed to receive a bouquet from the chief guest however, the ceremony ended up being one of the most disrespectful moments in the recent history of boxing.

The man who was going to give flowers to Mayweather unexpectedly decided to throw the flowers on the mat instead of giving them directly. Mayweather was shocked as well as the whole arena because nobody saw that coming. Mayweather handled the situation like a professional and immediately picked the flowers from the mat and gave it to his team.

It was something that nobody could forget and the real reason behind it is yet to be known. However, it was extremely disrespectful as Mayweather is one of the most established fighters of the last two decades and he has built a name for himself.

After all that drama, hopefully, nothing stopped and the fight started as scheduled. Both the fighters were confident and the atmosphere was electrifying.

In the first round, both the fighters managed the distance and tried to read their opponents. There were few exchanges but none of the fighters was extending much. Asakura was consistent with his jabs however, Mayweather dodged most of them with good head movement. Even at the age of 45, Mayweather still has his amazing defence which is extremely hard to penetrate.

During the charge, Mayweather connected a shot which was low and Asakura protested for a low blow.

The referee Bayless tried to stop the fight but after looking at the clock with less than 10 left and let it continue. Asakura finally landed a left on Mayweather but in return, the American dropped Asakura with a huge right. The fight got over and Floyd was announced the winner via TKO.
