Things got even more personal now between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather.
The former boxer and now promoter came up with the shade of his own as he fired back on Mayweather after the undefeated champ called him ‘Golden Girl’ on Instagram.
De La Hoya also took to the social media site and brought up Floyd’s history of domestic abuses charges.

Mayweather took a time off from calling out UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov on Thursday, but he made a pair of throwback posts criticizing De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez.
The disrespect probably stemmed from Alvarez’s recent interview with TMZ Sports, who is fresh from signing the richest athlete contract in sports history. The unified middleweight champion urged his former tormentor to do the right thing prior to his future return.
“He wants to continue hurting boxing by making fights that don’t make sense … and not giving boxing the credibility it deserves. If he wants to return, I ask him to look my way to give a great fight to the fans. Let’s do the second fight. It’s very important. We have something pending there, so let’s make the second fight.”
‘Money’ responded by posting a photo of their first fight with a caption calling Canelo a ‘cheater’ and firing a shot on his blockbuster deal with DAZN. He wrote:
“#TBT It didn’t matter if Canelo ate his PED steak or not this night, this was by far the easiest fight of my career! Connor McQuitter was a way better fighter than Canelo’s cheating ass and I beat the brakes off him too! It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who’s still winning? You do the math!”
Aside from roasting the Mexican champ, Mayweather also taunted the Golden Boy Promotion CEO. He posted a photo of De La Hoya wearing fishnet stockings and heels and asked his followers to drop the most disrespectful comment.
But De La Hoya is not going down without a fight in this heated social media feud with Mayweather.
The boxing and MMA promoter brought up Mayweather’s domestic violence history as a response to his cross-dressing taunt. He mentioned Canelo in the post and told him Floyd was salty about his historic contract before stressing that they “will never resort to hitting women.”
Check the post below:
Mayweather served a 60-day jail time in 2011 after hitting his wife in front of their children. He also pleaded guilty to two counts of domestic violence in 2002 and faced another two counts of battery charges in 2003 after an altercation with two women in Las Vegas.
