When asked in a recent interview, Floyd Mayweather Jr. did not know whom UFC fighter Ronda Rousey was.
Mayweather at first thought the interviewer was talking about a man because his response to the question was that he “didn’t know who he is.” After that, Mayweather was confused and shrugged his shoulders, saying he really did not who Rousey was.
Rousey has said she would win against Mayweather in a no-holds bared MMA-style street fight, and UFC president Dana White concurs Rousey’s beliefs, reports ESPN.
White has said about a potential fight that she “wins that fight and hurts him badly."
It would be an entertaining fight because Mayweather is a boxer, not an MMA-style fighter. That kind of fight is not something Mayweather would be accustomed to. He has been trained only to use his hands, not his whole body. The battle between a man and woman would be a draw as well.
Mayweather is fighting his next bout on Sept. 13 in Las Vegas against Marcos Maidana in a highly anticipated rematch. The undefeated boxer is getting closer to Rocky Marciano’s 49 wins and zero losses record, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Mayweather’s all-time record is 46-0, so he would need to win four more fights in a row to surpass the legendary Marciano. Mayweather has said if the price was right for win number 50, he would not rule it out.
“If the price is right for No. 50, it’s possible. We can’t say what the future is," Mayweather stated.
