"My jab is feeling better than ever!" - Oscar De La Hoya calls out Floyd Mayweather for blockbuster ...

Oscar De La Hoya wants to run it back with Floyd Mayweather down the line. If victorious in his next two outings, the former Golden Boy Promotions CEO is ready to re-enter the squared circle against 'Money'.

In an interview with DAZN, Oscar De La Hoya stated that his first two comeback fights would serve as tune-up bouts for the blockbuster rematch with Floyd Mayweather. If successful in finding his bearings inside the boxing ring, De La Hoya will call out his former rival for another round.

"I want to make the biggest comeback in boxing history," said Oscar De La Hoya. "I want to get two of these fights under my belt and get the timing ready. And [for my] third one, I want to call out Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather most recently traded blows with YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul in a boxing match under the Showtime banner. De La Hoya believes Mayweather wanted to showcase his striking prowess and decided to take on Paul in an eight-round exhibition bout.

"Well, look, I mean, I think Floyd, after that exhibition he did with Logan Paul, I think Floyd is feeling like he has to prove something once again inside the boxing ring. So, look, if I come out okay and my body feels great, I'm telling you my jab is feeling faster than ever. I think it's the 15 years that I didn't use it, I think its feeling better than ever. So, if I feel good in the next two fights that I have, I'm going to go out there and call Floyd," added Oscar De La Hoya.
