Canelo roars ‘go f*** yourself’ to Oscar De La Hoya as fighter feuds with former promoter on social media

Canelo Alvarez has told his old promoter Oscar De La Hoya to ‘go f*** yourself’ as they engaged in a war of words on social media.

Mexico’s pound-for-pound king had an acrimonious split from De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions last year.

Canelo sued Oscar and Golden Boy, eventually securing his free agency and a clean break in an out-of-court settlement at the end of 2020.

Despite initially refraining from firing barbs at one another, their dispute is now once again re-emerging in the media.

Canelo dropped a bombshell interview before the Billy Joe Saunders fight in which he claimed De La Hoya had ‘no loyalty’ and is more ‘worried about drinking’.

Oscar reacted with a few words of his own, and has now added more criticism on social media.

Canelo and De La Hoya have gone back and forth on Instagram

In reply to a video of Canelo teaching a young boxer the fundamentals on Instagram, De La Hoya wrote: “Please, this guy does everything wrong.

“Head up when he throws hooks. On his heels, flat-footed. What else? Oh, he avoids Charlo.”

Canelo blasted back in response: “Oh really? You want me to talk? F***ing traitor.

“Do me a favour and go f*** yourself.”
