Floyd Mayweather has been very supportive of Ronda Rousey since her loss to Holly Holm.  Given the supposed feud between the two, many thought he would gloat at her demise.  Instead he defended her against Internet trolls attacking her on social media and said she would bounce back.  Now he’s going a step further, Mayweather offers to help Ronda Rousey to develop better boxing skills.

I want Ronda Rousey to hold her head up high and don’t let this discourage you. If you need help as far as with boxing, I’m here to help you. It’s all about timing and inches. Her ground game is unbelievable. She’ll be okay.

In terms of their feud, Mayweather believes Rousey didn’t really have anything against him; he says it was just business and exacerbated by the media.

I mean, even with the things that Ronda Rousey said about me, sometimes we need to be guided in the right way. Do I think that she really meant what she said? Absolutely not. You know, it’s crazy, to get to where I got to, I didn’t have no sponsors. I mean, today, people are overnight sensations. I commend Dana White and the Fertitta brothers for being able to take a female and make her so huge in a contact sport. I commend them for that, but she had to do her part also, and she did her part. If I was her, I would’ve used Floyd Mayweather’s name also. She’s supposed to do that. It’s business, it’s not personal, and I understand business.

I think that the media plays a major part and they cut and chop and show only what they want to show. I just find it extremely funny that they say certain things about me. They come at me many different ways trying to discourage me, trying to defeat me, trying to discredit me. It’s no different from in the past, you know, sometimes you say certain things and you don’t mean what you say. We’re only human, we make mistakes, and like I said before, I apologize for not knowing who she was at one particular time. That just shows you how focused I was on my craft. When they said, “Floyd Mayweather didn’t know who you were,” at one particular time, my comment back would have been, “Well, in due time, he’ll know. The world will know.” I don’t have anything against anyone. A lot of times I speak, I speak from the heart. I think we have to conduct ourselves better. There’s just little small things that I think can hurt you in the long run.
