Oscar de la Hoya's message that seems to be aimed at Canelo Alvarez

Oscar de la Hoya always speaks his mind, and he doesn't care what other people think.

The former boxer hasn't held his tongue this time either and he has left a message that many see as being aimed at Canelo Alvarez, who beat John Ryder last Saturday by unanimous decision.

Apparently, though, that wasn't enough to impress his countryman who decided it was the right time to talk about the greatest Mexican boxers in history.

He didn't mention Canelo at any point, but he jumped onto his Twitter account to send a direct and powerful message related to Julio Cesar Chavez and the best Mexican boxers in history.

"Nobody will ever be Julio Cesar Chavez," De La Hoya said.

Some fans replied to the Golden Boy's message to clarify that he was not better than Julio Cesar Chavez either, and that angered De la Hoya.

De la Hoya is not the only one who considers Canelo a step below Julio Cesar Chavez and other historic Mexican boxers like Ruben Olivares, Sal Sanchez, Juan Manuel Marquez or Erik Morales. That was the big question David Faitelson put out there after Canelo's win over Ryder.

"With all respect, do you guys really think 'Canelo' is on the same level as Julio Cesar Chavez, Ruben Olivares, Sal Sanchez, Juan Manuel Marquez or Erik Morales?" wrote Faitelson on Twitter.

In addition, he claimed that Alvarez's "decline has already begun."

"This version of 'Canelo' doesn't even beat Dimitri Bivol or David Benavidez," the ESPN analyst posted on Twitter.
