But one could argue that he has good reason. Maybe. You see, the two just don ‘t like each other and have a history of public back and forths. We can only conclude this is the latest … another response from Mayweather, if you will.
Back in November, De La Hoya wrote an open letter to Mayweather in Playboy and ripped him for being a boring fighter, and Mayweather responded by saying, “Everything I do goes viral,” and blaming De La Hoya’s comments on “drugs” and “jealousy.”
But after Mayweather attended the Danny Garcia/Robert Guerrero fight on Saturday night (01-23-16) at Staples Center in downtown LA (and talked trash to Amir Khan in the process), he did an interview with Fight Hype. And during it, Mayweather went in HARD on his former rival by randomly referencing the time De La Hoya took a photo while dressed in drag.
“It’s good to work with guys like Richard Schaefer and Al Haymon, guys that’s drug free, guys that wear suits, guys that dress like men,” he said. “Of course, you know I’m sending shots at Oscar De La Hoya. I’m always sending shots at him because I don’t respect a man that dress in drag.”
Like we said he went personal. Real personal.
Mayweather also spoke with Fight Hype about Conor McGregor, Dana White, Kobe Bryant, Manny Pacquiao, and more in the clip below.
