Floyd Mayweather Fires Fresh Shot At Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez Over Fight Contract

Floyd Mayweather has taken a fresh swipe at Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez over his DAZN fighting contract.

Alvarez became the best paid sports star on the planet after signing an 11-fight deal with sports streaming service DAZN in October 2018.

The five-year contract with DAZN is worth a whopping minimum of $365 million but 'Money', who beat 'Canelo' in 2013, reminded him of the big bucks he made from his last two competitive fights - against Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.

"If I'm not mistaken, Canelo got something like eleven fights right, for 300 something million. I got that in one night," Mayweather told FightHype.com, via World Boxing News.

"I got that (what Canelo signed for over five years) in 28 minutes. You know, I got Canelo's entire contract in 28 minutes. "I made over $300 million twice. And it only took me like, 36 minutes and 28 minutes. We can round it off and say one hour. In one hour I made $650 million."

Mayweather aimed a dig at his former opponent when the Mexican's lucrative deal was announced, again bragging about making more money than him in a much shorter period of time.

He wrote on Instagram: "#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!"

Canelo was 23 at the time and yet to reach his prime years. These days the four-weight world champion reckons it would be a "different fight" if the two locked horns again.

But the 50-0 fighter says he has no desire to step back in the ring.

Mayweather added: "You gotta love my story, The American Dream. I took the hard route, but I made it look easy.

"I'm very, very happy with how my career went. I don't have to fight anymore. "To those fighters who want to call me out, 'I'm happy and I'm retired, " Mayweather concluded.

"I'm retired. I'm through with boxing."
