Oscar De La Hoya, 48, calls out Floyd Mayweather, 44, after two comeback fights starting in September

OSCAR DE LA HOYA wants revenge on Floyd Mayweather after shaking off the rustiness with two comeback fights.

The 48-year-old is stepping back into the ring in September – 13 years after hanging up his gloves following defeat against Manny Pacquiao.

His opponent remains unknown for now although it hasn’t stopped him from putting himself through a number of gruelling workouts.

De La Hoya, an 11x world titleholder in six weight classes, tasted defeat just six times in 45 fights during his illustrious career.

One of those came at the hands of the legendary Mayweather in 2007 after surrendering his WBC light middleweight title.

And it appears he wants to turn back the clocks to land another showdown with the Money Man.

Reported by talkSPORT’s boxing editor Michael Benson, The Golden Boy said: “Let me get like two fights in and then I can f****** call out Mayweather, you watch – in a f****** real fight.”

Mayweather just pocketed a whopping £70million after his eight-round exhibition showdown with Youtuber Logan Paul.

But he may take some convincing to step back inside the ring after ruling out another return to boxing.

After going the distance with Paul, he said: “As far as me coming back in the sport of boxing, absolutely not.

“As far as me doing an exhibition again probably not.”

De La Hoya had lined up a fight with MMA ace Georges St-Pierre but the move with blocked UFC chief Dana White.
