Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya continues to be very a great deal interested in coming lower back to ring.
the former six division champion retired again in December of 2008, after suffering a one-sided stoppage loss by the hands of Manny Pacquiao.
throughout a contemporary interview with BoxingScene.com, De La Hoya named middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin as a target opponent.
however now, De La Hoya has set his sights on a grudge rematch with five division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
De La Hoya misplaced an in depth twelve circular break up resolution to Mayweather in 2007 – basically event of a battle that generated he third optimum pay-per-view buyrate in history.
seeing that revealing his want to combat once again, De La Hoya has been mobbed with questions referring to a likely fight with Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, who currently parted ways with Golden Boy after a prolonged business relationship.
De La Hoya explains that he would somewhat combat the person who defeated Canelo in 2013, which is Mayweather.
“I’ve all the time prided myself on fighting the best possible. And why go after the 2d-top-quality [fighter]? Why no longer go after the man that beat [Canelo]? Why now not go after Mayweather, for example, in a revenge combat? That’s anything that is terribly exciting. We’ll see how I believe and then we’ll take it from there,” De La Hoya advised fight Hub television.
Mayweather retired from the game in 2017, with an ideal 50-0 record, after stopping UFC celebrity Conor McGregor in ten rounds.
the former five division world champion is scheduled to enter the ring once again on February 20th, when he faces Youtube star Logan Paul in a pay-per-view main event – which is being fought as an exhibition. Mayweather, forty three-years-old, took half in one other exhibition again in December of 2018, when he blew away unbeaten kickboxer Teshin Nasukawa in the first round.
