In the latest episode of On The Ropes Boxing Radio, legendary trainer Floyd 'Joy' Mayweather Sr. spoke with host Jenna J. on an assortment of hot topics. One such topic included Oscar De La Hoya. Mayweather Sr. gave his thoughts on what he thought of Oscar and some of the things said during the promotion of Mayweather vs. Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.
I have clipped a section of the interview (for your reading enjoyment) where Floyd Sr. discusses Oscar.

Regarding what Floyd Sr. had to say on Oscar, read on...
Jenna J: Well you say about all the talk of the fight, Oscar De La Hoya has been talking a lot about the fight and he does that for every particular opponent that he puts against Floyd, but for this fight its a little different. He seems a little more confident. Why do you think that is?
Mayweather Sr: All you gotta say is, you know I like De La Hoya as a person, but right now this is me and my son. And my son is against De La Hoya at this moment and I am too because he has his opinions and ain't nothing wrong with his opinions and I have my opinion and ain't nothing wrong with my opinion. My opinion is, we gonna kick his ass, simple.
Jenna J: Do you think Oscar really believes what he is saying or do you think he's just promoting?
Mayweather Sr: No, I don't believe he believes that, he's hoping that but I don't believe he believes that. Look here, the whole thing is that even though me an De La Hoya, we close, whenever we see each other we embrace each other and I have a lot of love for De La Hoya. But this right here is on a whole new level, that's my son, that's my blood and hey, I ain't going against that so he can say what he wish there's nothing wrong with that. But we coming to kick his ass, simple.
