This isn’t a great look for Floyd Mayweather, Jr., but perhaps it could’ve been worse?!
During an interview on ESPN on Thursday, Mayweather was asked about recent comments made by Ronda Rousey at the ESPYS last month, where she taunted Mayweather about being “beat by a woman” for the Fighter Of The Year Award.
Mayweather was candid but reserved in his response when pushed about her career and opinions of him. At first he discussed how he hadn’t known who Rousey was, saying:
“A while back I never knew who Ronda Rousey was, so I’m pretty sure she got upset. I want to say congratulations to Ronda Rousey and the UFC. You guys have done a tremendous job. And I’ve won probably six or seven ESPYs for Fight Of The Year, and she deserves it. Congratulations to Ronda Rousey.”
But then, when pressed about Rousey’s comments referencing Mayweather’s legal history and domestic violence problems, the fighter turned to the one thing he knows well: money!
He shot back:
“I’ve yet to see any MMA fighter or other boxer make over $300 million in 36 minutes. You know when she can do that then, call me.”
Well, OK Floyd. Ch-ch-check out the entire cringeworthy clip (below):
What do U think — how mad was Floyd under the surface, and how hard was it for him to keep it together??
