Floyd Mayweather Jr. extended his undefeated streak defeating Saul “Canelo” Alvarez by a majority decision Saturday night. Mayweather wasn’t done taking shots, he posted the following picture on his Instagram account and took a shot at Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya.
Last week Floyd Mayweather unleashed on Oscar De La Hoya after the Golden Boy picked Canelo to knock out Mayweather around the 8th round.
“I feel like Oscar couldn’t beat the king so he wants to see someone else beat the king,” Mayweather Jr. said, via the Los Angeles Times. “It’s chess. … I can knock them all off the board. I’m amazing like that.
“Oscar’s just jealous of me. He don’t have money like me. He’s not flyer than me.
“Oscar … likes to run around with this Golden Boy image, which we know really is [false]. He’s always been jealous of me. I’m the total package.”
The image Mayweather chose pokes fun at De La Hoya on two levels. One that he was wrong about Canelo and that Mayweather won again. And second by poking fun at De La Hoya who is currently in rehab seeking treatment for substance abuse problems.
It is a pretty low blow from Mayweather.
