WATCH! Holly Holm claims Floyd Mayweather Jr. ‘the greatest of all time’

November 24, 2015 6:00 am by Russell Ess

Holly Holm has been all over the place since taking the UFC women’s bantamweight championship belt from Ronda Rousey at UFC 193. Holm was in attendance at the Canelo versus Cotto boxing match that happened over the weekend at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

FightHype caught up with the new UFC champion and asked her about meeting Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently. The retired boxing great and Holm were seen at the NBA Warriors versus Clippers game posing for a picture together.

“It was awesome,” Holm said. “Just to be able to meet one of the greatest, I mean, the greatest of all time, you know? He’s the only one that’s ever been able to do it undefeated.”

With Holm’s former championship boxing career, you would think she would also have known about Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record, which Floyd tied with his last win. Perhaps it just flew over Holm’s head, but it is apparent she has a huge amount of respect for one of boxing’s biggest stars.

What are your thoughts on Holm’s nod to Mayweather? Do you consider him the greatest of all time? If not, who do you rank at the top?
