In increasingly desperate attempts to stay relevant, Floyd Mayweather, retired boxer, wife-beater and known critic of Ronda Rousey, has seemingly done a 180 on his thoughts on her following her defeat at the hands (and feet) of Holly Holm this past weekend. Speaking to Fight Hype, Mayweather wouldn’t be Mayweather without also adding some self-congratulatory comments on his undefeated record. Read the passage below and find the full article here.
“I don’t think it’s cool how everyone is trolling her on social media. Certain things you have to learn. People will love you on Friday and then Sunday morning, it’s nothing but negative comments and people making jokes and people making fun about you, which I don’t think is cool. I’ve never been on the other side, so I don’t know how it feels. I’m pretty sure she’s a very, very strong person, but we still have to take into consideration that she has feelings,” Mayweather explained.
“Everything happens for a reason. This was already written. Listen, if God says, ‘In Floyd’s career, I don’t want him to lose,’ you know what? I wasn’t going to lose. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t took a loss before. I’m not talking about boxing; I’m just talking about life. When you lose a loved one, that’s taking a loss. I think that everything is just a learning experience. In due time, she’ll be able to bounce back and make some noise again in mixed martial arts.”
