However, Mayweather Jr eventually backed out after hearing about Pacquiao’s excuses.
On their own terms, of course, which means MMA and not boxing.
A fan brought up the UFC champion’s ongoing feud with Mayweather, asking if she could beat him in a “ruleless” fight. Rousey said in a Reddit Q&A.
Who’s the best boxer of all time?
If Mayweather isn’t interested in seeing what kind of cash flow and interest a cross-over fight would draw, one boxer might be interested.
Arum said Pacquiao is eyeing Khan as the opponent for his comeback fight, although it won’t take place place until next year when he’s fully recovered from shoulder surgery. Those who watched left disappointed and were furious at Pacquiao, who revealed a day after the match that he fought with an injury. “In any case, you said ruleless battle, and that is my fair reply”.
Of course, the Rousey-Mayweather debate/feud has been going on for some time now.
McGregor’s next opportunity will not be against Mayweather, of course, but against full featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
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.
It appears that all is not lost for Amir Khan in terms of him landing a big-money fight. Manny is getting up in age, so you never know what’s going to happen. For us, it’s like playing with a baby. “There are always clinches, and Ronda is a judo Olympian”, McGregor explained.
Ronda Rousey said that she would beat Floyd Mayweather in a no-rules fight. “I would knock him out cold”.
It won’t come as much of a surprise to readers to learn that Mayweather selected himself at number one, but his decision to put Muhammad Ali as low as fifth certainly raised our eyebrows.
Khan and Pacquiao were former sparring partners under shared coach Freddie Roach, who last year said there was no point in the pair fighting one another.
