Tenshin Nasukawa Rebounds From Floyd Mayweather Loss With Stunning Cartwheel Kick Knockout

Tenshin Nasukawa has rebounded from his loss to Floyd Mayweather in stunning, stunning fashion.

The Japanese kickboxer fought 'Money' on New Years Eve in a high-profile exhibition bout. But the promising combat star was emphatically beaten inside one round.

However, over the weekend, the 20-year-old returned to the kickboxing realm and recorded an unbelievable victory.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]," he said.

"If that's okay with him. He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN. I'm proud of Tank. He is going to stay active. So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight."

So, another trip to Tokyo for Team Mayweather.
