On the matter of professional records, Oscar De La Hoya believes that not only himself, but also Jose Luis Castillo and now Marcos Maidana have defeated Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. With this logic, De La Hoya feels Mayweather's true record stands at 43-3. Through social media, De La Hoya posted his discontent towards this weekend's match up that saw Mayweather Jr. secure a majority decision victory over Maidana.
De La Hoya dissed Mayweather's record, posting: "I watched several fights again and Floyd should be 43-3."
Another factor that De La Hoya doesn't agree with is Mayweather's stance on being the best ever. On twitter, De La Hoya posted: "You never ever hear Julio Cesar Chavez saying he's the best ever, and he was 87-0 before he lost" and "You have to realize that records don't mean anything in today's world. Don't forget Julio Cesar Chavez was 87-0 before he lost his first".
(It's impossible to find any fault with De La Hoya's quotes on Chavez... the word "Legend" was created for special men like Chavez!)
On a happier note, De La Hoya tweeted: "Wishing everybody a safe happy 5 de Mayo"
