Floyd Mayweather mocked by former opponents Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao after Tenshin Nasukawa knockout

Floyd Mayweather was taunted by two of his former opponents after destroying Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition on New Year’s Eve.

Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao – both of whom suffered losses to the now retired American – took to social media to post their thoughts on the fight, with neither opting to be complimentary.

Prior to the bout, Mayweather declared that he would be making $9million for the three, three-minute round affair.

McGregor stated on Instagram: “That $9million won’t keep you on top of my list for long, kid.”

The comment is in reference to the Forbes ‘Highest Paid Athlete’ rich list which the 50-0 boxing great famously topped throughout the latter years of his career – a title the Irishman is now looking to claim for himself.

Pacquiao meanwhile posted on Twitter: “Here is an early New Year’s resolution – To continue to only fight experienced opponents who are my size or bigger.”

While 41-year-old Floyd Mayweather is now retired from professional boxing and only engaging in exhibitions, 40-year-old Manny Pacquiao continues to fight on.

The Filipino’s next outing sees him face Adrien Broner.

He is hoping to overcome this loud-mouthed, younger American and then lure another loud-mouthed, older American out of retirement for a rematch.
