Floyd Mayweather may still be sitting pretty at the top of boxing after his comfortable win over Manny Pacquiao earlier this month, but it is fair to say the US fighter isn't everyone's flavor of the month.
Money Mayweather has had beef with just about everybody down the years, and now one of his more recent verbal sparring partners, UFC superstar Ronda Rousey, has delivered the one thing Pacquiao couldn't - a potential knock out blow.
Knock out blow
Speaking during an interview with Access Hollywood, Rousey was quizzed on the hypothetical scenario of sharing a ring with Floyd Mayweather. Her response was genius.
"Well, I would never say that I can't be anyone," the 28-year-old said.
"But I don't think me and him (Floyd Mayweather) would ever fight, unless we ended up dating."
For the uninitiated, Floyd Mayweather has a wildly publicized history of domestic violence.
In 2012 he spent three months in county jail, as well as completing a 12-month domestic violence program, after being found guilty of assaulting a former girlfriend. This followed other charges in 2002 and 2004 which resulted in suspended sentences totalling 18 months in relation to three counts of misdemeanour battery.
Rousey, perhaps sick of the taunts that have been thrown in her direction from the boxer in the recent past, wasn't going to waste an opportunity to bring it up.
Famously, Floyd Mayweather claimed that he didn't know who Ronda Rousey was - insinuating that he believed he was being asked about a male fighter.
And, ahead of his much hyped 'fight of the century' against Mayweather on May 2nd, Manny Pacquiao claimed that Rousey would be able to beat the US boxer should the crazy scenario ever play out.
It doesn't look like Ronda Rousey is planning for such a bout in the near future, though. And, judging by their frosty relationship, we can't see her and Mayweather getting together outside the ring anytime soon either.
