Ring legend Floyd Mayweather spoke to the press after his eight round exhibition on Sunday night in Miami.

“The people wanted a show. I could have [got him out of there]. I could have pressed real, real hard and started throwing these crazy combinations, but it was fun…his whole goal wasn’t to come out here and knock me out. His whole goal was to survive. And that was a win for him.”

“When I come and do an exhibition or come out and box to have some fun, I do it because I want to do it, not because I have to do it. Whereas Pacquiao at his age, which is sad, he has to fight. I’m financially set. And I wanna let everybody know this. You’re gonna hear stories, ‘Floyd has to do this.’ No. I’m well off.”

“The best thing about this week was my youngest daughter graduating.”

Free-swinging veteran Japanese, WBO#11 ex-OPBF champ Ryo Akaho (37-2-2, 25 KOs), 123.5, impressively made short work of active policeman Daisuke Sugita (6-2, 3 KOs), 123.25, finishing him for the count at 1:49 of the third round in a scheduled ten on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Having failed to win a world 115-pound belt twice from compatriot Yota Sato (L12) here in 2012 and from Pungluang Sor Singyu (KOby 2) in Thailand in 2015, the hard-punching Akaho thus registered eleven victories in a row and demonstrated his latest surge at the age of thirty four. Decking Sugita with a right shot in round one, Ryo finely connected with a vicious right following a solid combo and had him down for the fatal ten.

38-year-old former four-division champion Nonito Donaire (41-6, 27 KOs) became the oldest man to win a bantamweight title by knocking out 3:1 favorite and previously unbeaten WBC bantamweight champion Nordine Oubaali (17-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Starting off with the jab, Oubaali and Donaire figured each other out. Oubaali began to let his hands go in the second but Donaire swung wildly as the champ proceeded cautiously. Going toe to toe in the third, a huge left hook by Donaire dropped Oubaali. He got up, but another left hook found its mark once again dropping Oubaali face-first to finish the round. Donaire then finished Oubaali in the fourth round dropping him for a third time with a left hook, right uppercut combination. Referee Jack Reiss waved off the bout at 1:52 of the fourth.
