So, let me start from the beginning. A couple weeks ago Oscar De La Hoya was on The Cruz Show on the radio and he said this:
Cut to a couple days ago and Floyd Mayweather saying this:
"I see Oscar talking that he's coming back. If he wants to, we can rock-and-roll in September. We can do it at '54, he knows that. He said he wanted a rematch. If Oscar wants it, he can."
Mayweather has stated that he will fight one last time in September before retiring (supposedly for good this time) and he seemed very willing to make De La Hoya his last fight.
You might remember that Mayweather and De La Hoya fought back in 2007 and Mayweather won that bout via a split decision. That fight did have a rematch clause but Mayweather ended up retiring and so the rematch never transpired - which is something De La Hoya was quick to point out via an Instagram video he posted earlier today, in which he said:
"So I hear Floyd wants to give me a rematch now." "Our first fight had a rematch clause, it had to take place within the year. He retired in a year and one day."
Okay, so what does this all mean for De La Hoya fighting again and possibly fighting Mayweather? Well, I think the rest of his Instagram video pretty much says it all:
"I'm happy. I'm content. I'm never coming back. I'm going to continue growing Golden Boy (Promotions)."
