Love him or loathe him, Floyd Mayweather has his redeeming moments, rare though they are.
Taking a more humble approach to addressing Ronda Rousey, Mayweather was on the money with his motivational message to the former UFC champ following her crushing defeat at UFC 207.
After a brief spiel on his domestic violence charges, the five-division world champion told her:
Keep your head up, stay focused, keep believing. A true champion can bounce back.
You’ll be okay. Everything will be okay.
Last month, Ronda lost her comeback fight to Amanda Nunes in just 48 seconds. The loss was her second in a row, and a consecutive defeat by knockout – a disappointing blow for the former UFC Bantamweight Champion.
As a boxer whose record is undefeated, there isnât much experience Floyd can share about recovering from a loss – but that didn’t stop him from trying.
