Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, the WBC middleweight champion, is supposed to be fighting against Golovkin this year. The pugilist has now become one of the most renowned and skilled boxers. Canelo is right now the biggest asset for Golden Boy Promotions and ‘Oscar De La Hoya’, who has some personal grudges with the former boxing star Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather announced his retirement recently in September, 2015 after winning the 49th fight of his career.
Mayweather has fought against both, Canelo and De La Hoya. He lately commented on Canelo, saying that he would return to beat him up once again if Canelo got out of the line. Mayweather said, “Like I said before, all [De la Hoya is] banking on now is Canelo. And s–t, if I come back in the game—Canelo, you already know what I did to you, and I could do it again…if you get out of line. Because you already know what I say: You violate, and I’ll demonstrate, and that’s for all 49.”

Mayweather and Canelo last met in the ring on September 14, 2013 and the fight was won by Mayweather by Majority Decision. He defeated De La Hoya by Split Decision on May 5, 2007. Talking about De La Hoya, Mayweather said that he doesn’t work with people who don’t wear manly dresses.
“It’s good to work with guys like Richard Schaefer and Al Haymon, guys that [are] drug free, guys that wear suits, guys that dress like men,” said Mayweather. “And 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[es] in drag.”
