De La Hoya: Laughing at Lowlife Mayweather, He Needs Money

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya believes Floyd Mayweather is running out of money due to his extravagant lifestyle.

And because of those financial issues, Mayweather is now talking up another comeback - in fights against UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov and WBA "regular" welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather, 41-years-old, retired from the sport in August of 2017, when he stopped UFC star Conor McGregor in the tenth round. That was Mayweather's first bout in nearly two years.

Following the win over McGregor, Mayweather announced is retirement from the sport.

But Mayweather has also retired in the past on at least two other occasions.

De La Hoya feels strongly that Mayweather has been talking up a comeback to steal away attention from Canelo Alvarez, who signed a lucrative $365 million deal with streaming service DAZN.

"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. I don't know what he was trying to do, but people know that Floyd is Floyd," De La Hoya told TMZ.

"That's who he is - he's a lowlife. That's exactly who Floyd is. Me and Canelo are having the last laugh. Canelo will enjoy his lucrative contract and fight the very best, which Floyd doesn't do... he either waits for fighters to get over the hill or too young.. like he did with Canelo, fought him when he was too young.

"Another reason why he's crawled [out from] under his rock is because he needs money. He needs money once again. Fighters like that always go broke. He's not fighting anymore so that big money is no longer coming in. Look at Mike Tyson, he made like $500 million dollars. You think you can't spend $500 million dollars overnight? Absolutely."

Mayweather recently called Canelo the "easiest win" of his career. Mayweather dominated Canelo over twelve rounds back in September of 2013.

"Of course because he was 21 years old," De La Hoya said.

"That's like me fighting Ryan Garcia, who is 19 years old.. what am I going to do? I'm going to beat him easy, because of my experience."
