BOXING BEAT: De La Hoya –– ‘Mayweather Went Out With Firecracker, Not A Bang’

October 3, 2015 2:58 am by BJPENN.COM News

We know one person who’s extremely happy that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has retired. Legendary boxer Oscar De La Hoya is happy to see Mayweather gone and hopes he never makes a comeback.

That’s what he told when they asked him if he thought, like many do, that the undefeated boxer would be making a comeback to get that record-breaking 50th win.

De La Hoya also talked about how Mayweather went out, with his 12 round decision win over Andre Berto. De La Hoya described his last fight as a firecracker, instead of a big bang. It’s clear he wasn’t to thrilled about the Berto fight and honestly he’s not to thrilled about Mayweather in general, but, we already knew that.

Check it out!

“It wasn’t a guy going out with a big bang. It was a guy going out with a little fire cracker. Good for him. He’s now retired, so now we move on to the good stuff.”
