Floyd Mayweather Taunts Canelo On Instagram After The Mexican Signs Biggest Boxing Deal

Floyd Mayweather Taunts Canelo On Instagram After The Mexican Signs Biggest Boxing Deal

Floyd Mayweather has taken time out from talking about Khabib Nurmagomedov to mug off Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez on Instagram.

Alvarez recently took his place the best paid sports star on the planet after signing a new deal to have his next 11 fights shown on sports streaming service DAZN, starting with his upcoming bout with Rocky Fielding on December 15.

The deal with DAZN is worth a whopping minimum of $365 million till 2023 and most people are deeming it to be a game-changer in sports, let alone boxing.

Mayweather, however, is typically not having absolutely any of it and proceeded to throw some serious shade at his former opponent - claiming he makes $300 million plus in 36 minutes in between the ropes.

Using a picture of him striking the Mexican in his 2013 victory, he captioned it:

The Six Richest Fights In Boxing History Is Dominated By Floyd Mayweather

"#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!"

The 50-fighter wasn't done there though, going after Canelo's promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, who he beat via the scorecards back in 2007. He definitely upped the ante with this post too.

It's building nicely to a potential rematch between the pair and Canelo has expressed his interest in avenging his only professional defeat.

"That's something I would love," he told Sports Illustrated when asked about the possibility of mixing it up with Mayweather again.

"If he wants to come back and is still motivated to come back, he should do it right and give me the opportunity to have that rematch and demonstrate who is better.

"I'd love to have the opportunity to prove myself at this point in my career."
