Hypocritical De La Hoya calls out McGregor

Conor McGregor

For boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya thinks he could be the next boxer to take out MMA Champion Conor McGregor. De La Hoya reckons that even as his advanced age of 44 years old he could beat McGregor in a boxing match.

De La Hoya has been "training secretly" for this bout. Secretly training. I'm faster than ever, and stronger than ever. Plus De La Hoya would only need "two rounds" to take down McGregor. "I'll come back for that fight", he said.

"Safety is the most important thing for the fighters that are down". I'm calling him out.

"I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred and they basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something", Mazzulli said during an appearance on The MMA Hour. However, these are the same hurdles the UFC needed to work out in order for McGregor to fight Floyd Mayweather, and that got ironed out. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.

The UFC lightweight champion is expected to return to the Octagon for his next outing and he's recently challenged his rivals in the boxing community to show their courage by testing their mettle under mixed martial arts rules but that's not something that would interest "The Golden Boy". He would freaking destroy me. [My confidence] is how I feel now from my training. "You know I still have it in me".

Oscar De La Hoya, a 10-time world title victor and former pay-per-view giant, has teased the idea of a possible return to the boxing ring.

Despite being retired for nearly a decade, Oscar De La Hoya believes he could destroy Conor McGregor.

With all the controversy, candour and steely-eyed self-belief we've come to expect, Conor McGregor: Notorious offers an unprecedented glimpse into the public and private life of a man considered a hero by fans across the globe. Having long since demanded McGregor either defends or vacates his title, the American now believes the Irishman's antics at the recent Bellator event was a way to get out of any fight with Ferguson at UFC 219.
