De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather: The World Awaits
The fight was a super welterweight superfight which took place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada between six-division world champion Oscar De La Hoya (38-4, 30 KO) and undefeated four-division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (37-0, 24 KO).
At the time, the bout was the most lucrative boxing match ever, with over $130 million in generated revenue.
Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya fought way back in 2007. Mayweather won that battle through split decision from the judges and a proposed rematch that never happened in 2008.
De La Hoya then resigned in 2009, though he is thinking about a return to the ring. De La Hoya is currently 42 and this is why many people think he is an aged man and too old to fight. Mayweather noted in his conversation climax talk on Instagram: Here’s Floyd discussing the potential matchup with Oscar later this year, per Boxing Scene.
“I seen a little thing with Oscar, saying that he’s coming back. I mean, if he want to we can rock and roll in September. We can do it 154. He already know that. He said he wanted a rematch. So if he want it we can do it in September. He already knows how I operate.”

Probably not much chance a second Mayweather-De La Hoya fight would bring to MayPac numbers, but there are likely still chumps who will line up to spend money on a pay-per-view. Mayweather would LOVE to take their money and of course run.
