    An exhibition could mean anything really.

    At the lowest end of the scale...Aoki vs Fedor and Mousasi vs Fedor were literally just them playing around. It was a demonstration.

    Buakaw vs Saenchai was light sparring with footpads.

    Ali vs Inoki exhibition was a real competition, albeit with fucked up rules.

    TUF exhibition fights are 100% real.

    Here's a good example from a recent New year's Eve card in Japan.
    Retired K1 legend Masato vs Gomi.
    Masato's kicks and punches look pretty damn hard.



    Tenshin has promised a KO. I have a feeling like this is going to be a real fight for as long as it lasts.

    Other exhibitions where people got KO include Jienotsu vs Aoki and Kikuno vs Jienotsu....although they we're advertised as mixed rule fights if I recall correctly.

    I predict Tenshin KOs him with a flying knee and gets DQ'd.

    Nonsense. Floyd could never train kicks for one minute going into this fight and he'd eat a kick from Tenshin just fine. Mayweather has fought guys that make this kid look like a fluffy bunny rabbit.

    Also, it's an exhibition bout, guys. Some of you need to brush up on what that means. This was never going to be a real fight. And if it were, it would be a real boxing match, and Tenshin wouldn't stand a chance.

    Who the fuck thought it would be any other rules?Just silly.It's literally what I said it was going to be (in a lot of posts here when it was announced) down to the amount of rounds.

    Their plan was for an exhibition, don't blame Floyd like he came up with this shit.
    They're paying him a stupid amount of money to clown their youngest fighter and you're mad at Floyd? For what, not turning down easy money? They're dropping $88 Million on this and you can be sure the vast majority of that cash is for Floyd.
    Who in their right mind would turn that down?

    Tenshin couldn't knock Floyd out if his life depended on it. Professional boxers couldn't knock Floyd out. What's this little kid gonna do? Here I am saying the same shit I said prior to the McGregor fight. Nobody ever learns

    Also Jienostu vs Aoki was originally a mixed rules fight and did appear on their official records until Dream was like naah just kidding that didn't count. Probably would've counted if Aoki didn't get slept.

    Even worse, so was Drago vs. Creed. Look how that turned out.

    1. Anyone can be knocked out.
    2. You have to enter a fight thinking you can win

    That's all there is to it. It's not me saying Tenshin is going to ko Floyd, it's him.
    He should try though and he has a punchers chance (AKA the minimum chance any fighter ever has)

    Don't get it twisted, a piece of Floyd's legacy is at stake. If he gets KTFO within 3 rounds of Queensbury rules boxing it will affect his status even if he keeps his 0 officially.

    Did they say who will be refereeing? I'm guessing somebody from the money team.

    You seriously think it wouldn't bother Floyd if Tenshin knocked him out?

    We all know who it should be.

    <Deported1>

    Floyd will get yellow carded for timidity.

    Deducted 20% of his purse.
    Rizin saves $20 million.

    Floyd is about money. Money Mayweather.

    The only way this stops is when the fight happens, no one watches it. If articles are written, don't click it. Just ignore it. Don't comment on it one way or the other. Just pretend it doesn't exist and the more people do that and the less interest there is in Floyd the less options he'll have.

    At that point he might try boxing a respectable opponent, at which point he might lose and fade away.
