Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – Undefeated welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather claimed he does not know who UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is.
When asked about Rousey, Mayweather said he “didn’t know who he is”.
Mayweather was named Best Fighter at the 2014 ESPY Awards Wednesday at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, while Rousey claimed the title of Best Female Athlete.
The boxing champion is scheduled to fight Marcos Maidana in a rematch on Sept. 13 at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Meanwhile, Rousey said she could take on Mayweather in a no-holds-barred street fight.
UFC president Dana White agreed, saying Rousey “wins that fight and hurts him badly.”
Mayweather did not reply to the comments of Rousey and White, and instead focused his efforts in criticizing Maidana.
“The fight went the way it went because he’s a dirty fighter,” said Mayweather about Maidana.
