Well, those are five words that you never thought you’d hear from Floyd Mayweather Jr. to Ronda Rousey.
In an interview with FightHype.com, Mayweather dished out his thoughts on Ronda Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm and even offered to help Rousey with her boxing, while adding that Rousey needs to “regroup.”
“I think that she needs some time off to regroup and refocus,” Mayweather said. “I think they’re rushing her. They need to build Ronda Rousey back up, her confidence back up, even though I think she’s probably still confident.
“What I would do, I would put them (Rousey and Holm) on the same card fighting against different opponents and then slowly build it up. It’s all about timing. That’s what I did with the Pacquiao fight. The fight went from me making 100 million to me making 300 million, so it’s all about timing.”
Mayweather and Rousey have held their public spats and disagreements, but that didn’t stop Mayweather from at least publicly offering to help.
“I want Ronda Rousey to hold her head up high and don’t let this discourage you,” he said. “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.”
