UFC champion Ronda Rousey has continued her feud with boxing king Floyd Mayweather by stating that she would beat 'anyone' in a fight.

The 28-year-old, who has won 11 of her 12 fights in the first round, has an ongoing rivalry with the boxer, largely because of his history of domestic violence but also because Mayweather said he didn't know who she was.

Speaking in a lengthy 'ask me anything' session on Reddit, Rousey admitted that Mayweather would beat her in a boxing match - but that if the rules were stripped away she'd win in a fight.

"Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time," said Rousey. "He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don't get into 'matches.' I fight for a living.

"In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet. Boxing is a sweet science with strict rules that I respect very much and aspire every day to improve at. But you said ruleless fight, and that's my honest answer."

Last week, Mayweather appeared on ESPN and hit back at Rousey stating: "I've yet to see any MMA fighter, or other boxer, make over $300 million in 36 minutes. When she can do that, then call me."

At the ESPYS awards night in July, Rousey won the Fighter of the Year category ahead of Mayweather and had a dig at  his history of domestic abuse in her acceptance speech.

"I wonder how Floyd feels being beaten by a woman for once," she said.
