Oscar De La Hoya Calls Out Conor McGregor

Oscar De La Hoya Calls Out Conor McGregor

It was a move that could bring stern consequences to the UFC champion and it has been reported overnight that he has been pulled from the end-of-year event at UFC 219.

"I've been working out for the last five months". The Golden Boy CEO might also have been upset because it took place just three weeks before the Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez fight, which was promoted by his company.

Speaking to Dash Radio, De La Hoya - who won an Olympic gold medal for the United States of America at Barcelona 1992 - said: "You know I'm competitive, you know I still have it in me". Mayweather defeated McGregor by TKO in the 10th round in a record-breaking pay-per-view. I'll come back for that fight.

But De La Hoya is wary of the threat posed by the Crumlin-born mixed martial arts fighter, adding: "Let's get it straight - in the cage, he would freaking destroy me".

In an astonishing announcement the former boxer who is now aged 44, revealed that he is secretly in training for a showdown with the current UFC lightweight champion. The first thing I wanted to do was inspect him and get Mr McGregor and his crew out of the cage so that's what we did.

The head of the commission that oversaw the Bellator 187 event in Dublin has claimed Conor McGregor has been axed from December's UFC 219. "I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life".

"Mr Redmond was knocked - I don't want to say he was unconscious - but he was hit quite heavy". I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.

De La Hoya was one of the most vocal critics of Mayweather vs. McGregor and he was rightly called out by UFC President Dana White for hypocrisy as De La Hoya didn't have much of an issue with "The Notorious" switching codes when one a Golden Boy fighter was being touted as a potential opponent.

'Two rounds, that's all I need.

De La Hoya retired from boxing in 2009 after losing a fight to Manny Pacquaio the previous year.
