Who’s in your corner?
Floyd “Money” Mayweather wants the world to know that he is the King of making money as a professional fighter. That’s true. He wins in that arena. Mayweather was not all negative on ESPN regarding Rousey. He did throw her something of a backhanded compliment. “A while back I didn’t know who Ronda Rousey was, so I’m pretty sure she got upset,” Mayweather said. “I want to say congratulations to Ronda Rousey and the UFC. You guys have done a tremendous job and I’ve won probably six or seven ESPYS for Fighter of the Year. And I truly believe she deserves it. Congratulations to Ronda Rousey.” And that is about as good as it gets for drawing a compliment out of Mayweather, the Money King. Sounds like he’s saying, “Gimme your lunch money and I’ll give you a compliment.”
