Oscar De La Hoya attempted to throw one final jab at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing match following weigh-ins on Friday. UFC President Dana White wasn’t having it.

De La Hoya has been critical of the Mayweather (49-0 boxing) vs. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) fight from the moment it was officially announced. White has run him down for his commentary and today threw a massive haymaker directed at the former boxing champion and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.

After De La Hoya posted a message on Twitter claiming the bout between Mayweather and McGregor is “disrespecting the sport of boxing,” White caught wind of it and took the liberty of responding (via Twitter):

McGregor’s head coach, John Kavanagh, also had a response (via Twitter):

McGregor meets Mayweather on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event airs on pay-per-view for a high definition price tag of $99.95.
