In 2021 he had the main objective of seeing Óscar de la Hoya again in the ring against Vitor Belfrot, but the positive in COVID-19 of the former world champion led to his return being postponed. Despite this, the Golden Boy was on everyone’s lips again after offering Floyd Mayweather a bag for the rematch.
Since the departure of Canelo Álvarez from Golden Boy Promotion, the former world champion has been out of all the boxing spots. It is no wonder, because his mismanagement led the Mexican to leave without leaving a coin in exchange and that his promoter barely did a couple of events between 2020 and 2021.
On the other hand, after being hospitalized for three days for COVID-19, Óscar de la Hoya made the news again after he confirmed that he offered Floyd Mayweather a shameless bag to carry out the rematch. “Do you know who I’m going to call for my next fight? Floyd Mayweather. I will offer Floyd Mayweather $ 100 million, ”the Golden Boy told TMZ Sports.
It should be remembered that the fight between the two Americans was held in May 2007 in which they fought for the WBC Super Welterweight World Title. The victory went to Money after defeating De La Hoya on points in a split decision.
De La Hoya talked about the future of Ryan Garcia
One of the expected comebacks in boxing is that of Ryan Garcia, who in 2021 became the WBC Interim Lightweight World Champion, and De La Hoya has news about it. “I’m working Ryan Garcia vs. JoJo Diaz on DAZN for the end of the year in Los Angeles. Tell me how good is that? That’s the fight I’m trying to work on. Ryan Garcia and JoJo Diaz deserve the best opponents for each other, “commented the CEO of Golden Boy Promotion. (Bolavip)
