Boxing superstar Mayweather takes on kickboxing hero Nasukawa in Japan on New Year's Eve in a huge exhibition bout.
And the undefeated five-weight world champion is laughing all the way to the bank as he continues to see the cash roll in.
For his three-round match will see him paid $9m – which equates to £785,000 for every 60 seconds he is in the ring.
Mayweather, 41, said: “What if I told you I was making $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan.
“Would you do the same if you were me?
“I like to call it a 9 minute walk through.”
Nasukawa is a huge start in Japan and is currently undefeated as a kickboxer, but there will be no MMA rules in force when they meet.
Instead the pair will fight under straight boxing rules at 147 pounds.
It will be a full contact exhibition match where Mayweather and Nasukawa will be wearing RIZIN 8-once gloves.
The bout will not go on Mayweather’s or Nasukawa’s boxing and MMA records and there will be no judges judging the fight.
Mayweather Jr. and Nasukawa will battle it out at a special event in Saitama, in a contest which has gained massive popularity in the Far East.
