Kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa destroyed his most recent opponent when he returned to action.

Fritz Biagtan took on Nasukawa in a kickboxing bout at Rizin 15 on April 21 at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan. Nasukawa won the fight by third-round TKO in the co-main event. Biagtan deserves credit as he last longer than most fans expected but it wasn’t meant for him to win.

The finish of the fight saw Nasukawa connected with a brutal knee to the body that folded Biagtan and ended the fight. As a result, Nasukawa’s kickboxing record is now 30 wins with zero losses.

The young Japanese sensation recently shared the boxing ring with one of the greatest boxers of all-time in Floyd Mayweather. He lost by first-round TKO in December but rebounded with a spectacular knockout win in his return to kickboxing in March.
