Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. went vintage-vintage for Throwback Thursday. The sports mogul jumped on social media this week to reflect on a couple of his past fighting foes.
Money Mayweather hit up Instagram Thursday (October 18) to taunt boxing veteran Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez.

#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!
This week, Canelo called out Mayweather and shared his interest in having a rematch with the living legend.
Canelo Alvarez says he’s sick of watching Floyd Mayweather try to make fights that hurt the sport of boxing — like Conor and Khabib — and says if he really wants a challenge, LET’S REMATCH! “He wants to continue hurting boxing by making fights that don’t make sense … and not giving boxing the credibility it deserves,” Canelo tells TMZ Sports. “If he wants to return, I ask him to look my way to give a great fight to the fans.” (TMZ)
A few days ago, Floyd announced his interest in boxing UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“What I exactly said is CBS, Showtime, MGM Grand, get that check book ready because you already know I’m Floyd Money Mayweather. I’m in the check-cashing business. I’m about that money. We fighting. I mean, I’m my own boss. So I can’t say what’s going on on Khabib’s end but on my end, we can make it happen. Then I saw on IG and social media he put, basically he’ll fight but he doesn’t want to fight in Vegas. Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capitol and after the fight you have to conduct yourself as a professional. Not just inside the ring but outside the ring. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee. I haven’t had a chance to see it but from what I heard it was a crazy melee [after UFC 229].
