And the fight wages on! Floyd Mayweather Jr. has responded to Ronda Rousey’s latest jab with another money shot, this time claiming the MMA is ‘not Forbes material.’ Say what?!
Ronda Rousey, 28, and Floyd Mayweather Jr., 38, must really want to fight because they will NOT stop dissing each other! After catching wind of the UFC fighter’s illiteracy diss, Floyd fired back at her once again, this time claiming that Ronda is nowhere near his status: “Last time I checked, I was number one on Forbes.”
This fight is getting ugly! Having caught wind of Ronda’s latest diss, in which she not-so-subtly called the undefeated boxer illiterate, Floyd issued a statement through a TMT member telling TMZ Sports, “Big bank take little bank. Let’s play and see how much money you get. Last time I checked, I was #1 on Forbes. She will never be at my status. Keep trying to get publicity.”
They may be referencing money in their latest digs, but trust us, this feud goes far beyond dollars and cents — it’s personal. And by the looks of it, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. The drama started back in July 2015, when Ronda made a reference to the boxer’s controversial history of domestic abuse during her speech at the 2015 ESPY Awards, where she beat him out for the Best Fighter Award. “I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once,” said Ronda. “I’d like to see you pretend to not know who I am now.” Floyd had previously claimed is a 2014 interview that he had no idea who she was.
Of course, Floyd wasn’t about to take that lying down. The boxing champion paid a visit to Sports Center on Aug. 7, during which he said he’s yet to see any MMA fighter make over $300 million in 36 minutes as he famously did in his fight against Manny Pacquaio adding, “When she can do that, then call me.” In response to the jab, Ronda told TMZ Sports that she actually “did the math” and she actually makes two to three times more per second than he does, before calling him illiterate. “When he learns to read and write, then he can text me.”
Wow! And we thought the Meek Mill and Drake feud was ugly. What do you think HollywoodLifers — have Ronda and Floyd taken their feud to far? Let us know your thoughts below!
