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.

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.
