Floyd Mayweather has taken a dig at WBO light heavyweight champion Canelo Alvarez over his five-year contract worth $365million with DAZN.

The Mexican fighter became the highest paid sportsman in 2018 shortly after signing an 11-fight deal with the sports streaming promoters.

However, Mayweather who inflicted Canelo's only career defeat in 2013 said he made almost double the amount in his last two career fights with Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.

"If I'm not mistaken, Canelo got something like eleven fights right, for 300 something million. I got that in one night," Mayweather told FightHype.com, via World Boxing News.

"I got that (what Canelo signed for over five years) in 28 minutes. You know, I got Canelo's entire contract in 28 minutes. "I made over $300 million twice. And it only took me like, 36 minutes and 28 minutes. We can round it off and say one hour. In one hour I made $650 million.

"It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who's still winning? You do the math!"

Canelo claims it would be a "different fight" if he locked horns with Mayweather for a second time.

But the Money Man has insisted he has no desire to step back in the ring.

Mayweather added: "You gotta love my story, The American Dream. I took the hard route, but I made it look easy.

"I'm retired. I'm through with boxing."
