After Oscar De La Hoya recently spoke about thinking of a comeback, Floyd Mayweather decided to call out the now 42-year-old for a rematch this September. Their first bout happened in 2007, and the three judges were split in awarding Floyd with the decision.
Mayweather calls out 42-year-old De La Hoya
Oscar De La Hoya spoke about a possible comeback, and now Floyd Mayweather seems to want another crack at him.
Interestingly enough, Oscar has now responded to Mayweather with an instagram post captioned "split decision".
"So I hear Floyd wants to give me a rematch now," said a seemingly amused De La Hoya. "Our first fight had a rematch clause, it had to take place within the year. He retired in a year and one day."
"I'm happy. I'm content. I'm never coming back. I'm going to continue growing Golden Boy (Promotions)"
De La Hoya is 39-6 in his hall-of-fame boxing career, which started out with a gold medal in the Olympics. He officially retired in 2009, and hasn't competed since a 2008 loss to Manny Pacquiao, his 4th defeat in his last 7 fights.
