CANELO ALVAREZ called Gennady Golovkin 'inhumane and stupid' for his comments on seizing the chance to 'legally kill a person in the ring'.
The usually soft-spoken GGG reacted furiously after 47-year-old De La Hoya said the Kazakh would be an 'easy' fight for his comeback.
Golovkin told AFP: "You know Oscar, you know how dirty his mouth is.
"Everything involving Gennady Golovkin for him is a nightmare.
"He can say whatever. But let me put it this way – If I got an opportunity to legally kill a person in the ring, I might seize it."
Golovkin still has ill-will towards the boxing legend stemming from his pair of fights against arch rival Canelo Alvarez -who De La Hoya formerly promoted.
And it appears Canelo is not yet willing to drop his animosity with GGG, as he slammed the ex-middleweight king for 'talking stupid'.
Speaking to Boxing Social through a translator, Alvarez said: “I think it’s stupidity. He’s just talking stupid.
“In the ring, you get up there to hurt them, but not to kill somebody. You don’t want to kill somebody there.
"It’s not humane. It’s not human to want to do that, so it’s stupidity. He’s talking stupid.
"It’s not right, it’s not human to want to try and kill somebody and touch a life.”
Canelo, 30, fought to a contentious draw against Golovkin, 38, in 2017 with several feeling the Mexican was fortunate to avoid defeat.
But in their equally thrilling rematch a year later, Alvarez prevailed with another razor thin set of scorecards.
