American MMA superstar Ronda Rousey has escalated her public war of words with Floyd Mayweather by saying she would beat him in a ‘no-rules’ fight
Rousey participated in an Ask Me Anything chat on Reddit on Monday, and was asked if she could beat Mayweather in a fight without rules.
“Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time,” Rousey wrote during a Reddit Ask Me Anything session .
“He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don’t get into ‘matches.’ I fight for a living.
“In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet,” she added. “Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that’s my honest answer.”
The 28-year-old Rousey is the undefeated UFC female bantamweight champion and was named the female athlete of the year at this year’s ESPYs.
Mayweather, 38, the five-division world champion, will take on fellow American boxer Andre Berto next month seeking to extend his unbeaten streak to a stunning 49-0.
Rousey’s comments come days after Mayweather responded to comments made about him at this year’s ESPY’s.
“I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” Rousey said at the ESPY’s. “I’d like to see him pretend to not know who I am now. I know for damn sure that he knew who I was, because he was running against me for Best Fighter that year and he has signed MMA fighters.”
Mayweather responded by commenting about how he made more money than any athlete last year.
“I’ve yet to see any MMA fighter, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes,” Mayweather said. “When she can do that, then call me.”
Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) will fight Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) on Sept. 12 in the last in his lucrative six-fight deal with Showtime/CBS.
Rousey is 12-0 after a 34-second knockout over Bethe Correia at UFC 190. Rousey’s next fight has not been determined, but Cris (Cyborg) Justino say she is willing to drop down to 135 pounds to fight Rousey.
