Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya straight up don’t like one another. The two (currently) retired boxers have engaged in a very verbal feud for over a decade, with Mayweather winning in their in-ring battle, but both men sparring through the press ever since.
Earlier this week Canelo Alvarez would sign a massive $365 million deal with DAZN, and claim he’d be more than happy to face Floyd Mayweather again.
Mayweather would respond by claiming he makes more in one fight than Alvarez will over the life of his contract, and would post a photo of Alvarez’ promoter Oscar De La Hoya’s blackmail scandal from a few years ago.
De La Hoya would retort by claiming jealousy from the undefeated former champion and told TMZ that Mayweather is “broke.”
“How fair is it that Canelo announces this big monumental deal and then here you have Floyd crawling out of his little rock, trying to sabotage or trying to steal the thunder.”
“That’s who he is,” Oscar says … “He’s a lowlife.”
De La Hoya told TMZ that he believes Mayweather is in need of money, hence his interest in returning to the ring against Canelo (or any of the other potential challengers Mayweather has called out).
And while both promoters are not friendly, the Golden Boy founder would make the fight because Canelo would want it to happen.
