Floyd Mayweather vs. Oscar De La Hoya: Latest News and Rumors on Potential Fight

Published by Bleacher Report on Thu, 18 Jun 2015

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya have had their fair share of clashes over the years both inside and outside the ring, but Money is hoping to coax The Golden Boy into one more fight.Continue for updates.Mayweather Challenges De La Hoya to September FightWednesday, June 17According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Mayweather would put his 48-0 record on the line against De La Hoya in September if the legendary boxer is willing to come out of retirement.Kel Dansby of BlackSportsOnline provided an Instagram video of Mayweather throwing down the challenge Wednesday:De La Hoya hasn't fought since falling to Manny Pacquiao in December 2008, but recent comments suggest that he hasn't completely closed the door on a potential return to the ring.Per Rachelle Corpuz of IBTimes.com, the 42-year-old founder of Golden Boy Promotions discussed his constant desire to compete on The Cruz Show on Power 106 FM earlier this month."There is not one day that passes by that I [don't] think about making a comeback," De La Hoya said. "Not one day, I swear."Mayweather and De La Hoya fought for the first and only time in May 2007. Mayweather won that bout and the WBC light-middleweight title, but it was among the closest contests of his career as he settled for a split-decision victory.There has seemingly always been bad blood between the two fighters, and that manifested itself recently when De La Hoya was critical of Mayweather's win over Pacquiao in May.De La Hoya didn't enjoy the lack of excitement and essentially labeled the so-called "fight of the century" a disappointment:Perhaps De La Hoya's words have something to do with Mayweather's eagerness to get him in the ring, but it is difficult to imagine that happening.De La Hoya is seven years removed from his last fight, and even though Mayweather is much older at 38 than he was during their previous encounter, he would have a massive advantage due to the ring rust De La Hoya would undoubtedly have to overcome. Mayweather's challenge seems like an attempt to generate publicity and punk out one of his greatest rivals rather than an actual setup for a fight. The ball is now in De La Hoya's court if he truly wants to pursue a comeback, though.Follow @MikeChiari on Twitter.
