Floyd Mayweather Jr. Babysits His Whips. Clowns Victor Ortiz & Oscar De La Hoya [Pics]
Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are not, and will probably never be friends. Sure, they have done business together with Floyd fighting for Oscar's Golden Boy Promotions over the years, but that was mostly because of GBP's former chief executive, Richard Schaefer.
When Schaefer resigned in June of 2014, there was no longer a buffer between De La Hoya and Mayweather, who severed business ties shortly afterwards.
Maybe De La Hoya is still angry about the parting of ways or never got over the fact that he lost a spit decision to Mayweather when they fought on May 5, 2007. Whatever the reason, he decided to reignite their feud in a new Playboy interview.
He said, among other things that "the fight game will be a better one without" Mayweather in it. Read an excerpt from the interview below.
Let’s face it: You were boring. Just take a look at your most recent performance, your last hurrah in the ring, a 12-round decision against Andre Berto. How to describe it? A bust? A disaster? A snooze fest? An affair so one-sided that on one judge’s card Berto didn’t win a single round? Everyone in boxing knew Berto didn’t have a chance. I think more people watched Family Guy reruns that night than tuned in to that pay-per-view bout. But I didn’t mind shelling out $75 for the HD broadcast. In fact it’s been a great investment. When my kids have trouble falling asleep, I don’t have to read to them anymore. I just play them your Berto fight. They don’t make it past round three.
Another reason boxing is better off without you: You were afraid. Afraid of taking chances. Afraid of risk. A perfect example is your greatest “triumph,” the long-awaited record-breaking fight between you and Manny Pacquiao. Nearly 4.5 million buys! More than $400 million in revenue! Headlines worldwide! How can that be bad for boxing? Because you lied. You promised action and entertainment and a battle for the ages, and you delivered none of the above. The problem is, that’s precisely how you want it. You should have fought Pacquiao five years ago, not five months ago. That, however, would have been too dangerous. Too risky. You’ve made a career out of being cautious. You won’t get in the ring unless you have an edge. Sure, you fought some big names. But they were past their prime. Hell, even when we fought in 2007—and I barely lost a split decision—I was at the tail end of my career. Then later you took on Mexican megastar Saúl “Canelo” -Álvarez, but he was too young and had to drop too much weight.
Mayweather has fired back via a conversation with World Boxing News.
I think he's jealous -- jealous. The thing is this, I mean, you see Richard Schaefer is gone. Richard Schaefer built Golden Boy. Honestly, who wants to do business with Oscar De La Hoya? I really care about a fighter's well-being. I'm just saying if Miguel Cotto was my fighter, if Canelo was my fighter, they'd be a lot bigger than they are now.
Mayweather even brought up his rival's cocaine addiction and cross dressing past.
I'm just saying how can Oscar even speak on something when he didn't even show up? He didn't show up at the Canelo fight. What are we talking about? Drugs, lies and adultery. And dressing in drag. Me, as a fighter, I'm just saying, if I was a young fighter coming up, a guy that's lying, a guy that's on drugs, a guy that we don't know if he's going to show up, he's not 100 percent, I've only got to say one thing -- he couldn't be my promoter. If I was a young fighter coming up, I would not want Oscar De La Hoya as my promoter. Me, as a fighter, I couldn't trust him.
Stay tuned, this probably isn't over.
After months of hard training that culminated in a win over Victor Ortiz two weeks ago, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is taking some time off to enjoy the fruits of his labor and keep an eye on his whips.
Money May tweeted a pic of himself (above) babysitting his fleet on luxury cars earlier this week.
"Last night I was bored so I decided BabySit the whips. #MoneyTeam," he wrote twitter.
The champ has also been going in on Ortiz and his promoter Oscar De La Hoya via twitter. Clowning them both by sending out real pics of them looking way less than masculine.
Check out some of the hilarious tweets and pics below.
