Floyd Mayweather is picking a fight with the worst possible person
It’s bad enough that Floyd Mayweather is arguably one of the most hated people in sports, and his ridiculous success only antagonizes his detractors, but now he’s picking a fight with a woman now. One that can actually fight back.
Ronda Rousey is the darling of the sports world currently, a swift assassin in the ring that demolishes her opponents–opponents that would prove formidable for 99% of the rest of the field–in mere minutes, if not seconds. She is also an adamant supporter of women’s issues, and recently jabbed at Floyd Mayweather on the ESPY red carpet, hinting at the fact that he wouldn’t like losing an award to a woman (herself).
Last night, on Sportscenter, Floyd took the opportunity to congratulate Rousey, but couldn’t help but slide in an underhanded response to her ESPYs comment.
“I’ve yet to see any MMA fighter, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes. When she can do that, then call me.”
We’re pretty sure this isn’t over.
