Floyd Mayweather Jr. verbally slays ‘cheating’ Canelo Alvarez for DAZN deal

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is here to remind us that he’s still the richest combat star in the world.

After seeing former opponent Canelo Alvarez ink a monster $365 million deal with DAZN earlier this week, “Money” took it upon himself to jump on social media and put the Mexican star on blast. Mayweather not only took a shot at Alvarez’s recent drug test failure, but he let everyone know that he’s still worth more.

“It didn’t matter if Canelo ate his PED steak or not this night, this was by far the easiest fight of my career,” wrote Mayweather. “Conor 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!”

Mayweather, who defeated Canelo via decision back in 2013, is coming off a 10th-round TKO victory over UFC superstar Conor McGregor last year in which he allegedly banked $300 million for his efforts. While “Money” has only worried about his own finances in the past he seems to be paying extra attention to Canelo’s ground-breaking deal with DAZN.

Mayweather has teased a return to the boxing ring as well as a crossover into the Octagon, but the 50-0 pugilist remains on the outside looking in. Maybe Canelo’s recent deal will spark Mayweather to return to action and score another legendary payday.
