De La Hoya Tells Floyd Jr: Beat Ortiz, Maybe I'll Fight You

By Chris LaBate

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya has issued a response to WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. During various points of the day on Tuesday, Mayweather was firing off social network insults at De La Hoya and former champion Victor Ortiz. Mayweather was very upset with the allegations being made by Ortiz and De La Hoya, who on Monday held a conference call with the media to discuss their concerns with the outcome of the fight.

During his first series of attacks, Mayweather told Ortiz to win a rematch with Andre Berto in order to secure a rematch of their September 17th bout.

"I'll give Ortiz a rematch but first he got to get past Andre Berto. The only man who can beat me is the man in the mirror. Victoria Ortiz's new nickname is 'take two of these and call me in the morning.' Victoria Ortiz thought it was a head-butting contest. But that two-piece gave him some [incentive to] act right," Mayweather fired off.

But later, Mayweather threatened both Ortiz and De La Hoya.

"I left the fight in the ring, but Oscar and Ortiz keep doing interviews crying like some Golden Girl b*tches. I will f*ck both of you up," Mayweather fired off.

De La Hoya is possibly willing to make a comeback, telling Mayweather to beat Ortiz "fair" and maybe they can fight again. De La Hoya lost a close twelve round split desision to Mayweather is 2007, which is still a fight that holds the pay-per-view buyrate record by a significant margin.

"It's so sad, Mayweather has to bash people and flaunt money that he's not going to have when he retires. Give Ortiz a rematch, try to beat him fair...and then maybe...just maybe - I will give you another chance at me," De La Hoya said.

Last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Ortiz struck Mayweather with an intentional headbutt in the fourth round. He was penalized a point by referee Joe Cortez. To apologize, Ortiz came over to Mayweather and gave him a hug. As Ortiz pulled back from that hug, Mayweather blasted him with two punches and put him down for the count.

According to Ortiz, the referee never issued a verbal order to resume fighting, and because of that Ortiz was off-guard and had his hands by his side. He blasted Mayweather in several interviews, claiming Mayweather won with a "cheap shot" and he demanded a rematch.
