Oscar De La Hoya Challenges Conor McGregor To A Fight

Conor Mc Gregor Marc Goddard

After nearly a decade in retirement, Oscar De La Hoya has revealed he has been "secretly training" and called out UFC superstar Conor McGregor for his comeback fight. He would also have marginally more chance of success against an older fighter who has been inactive for almost a decade and lost four out of his last seven bouts. 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.

In an interview with Dash Radio, De La Hoya even claimed that he could knockout McGregor within two rounds.

"I'm faster than ever". I think that's very important to understand that fighter safety is the most important thing in the world because without fighter safety, this sport would not proceed to the next level like it always has. Two rounds, that's all I need.

"Mr Redmond was knocked - I don't want to say he was unconscious - but he was hit quite heavy". I'm calling him out.

When rumors started firing around a year ago about the possibility of McGregor boxing, De La Hoya talked about having the UFC star fight his boxer, Canelo Alvarez.

The Taliban has also recently touted its "Special Forces Unit", which reportedly operates in southern and western Afghanistan . The militants used sophisticated night-vision goggles to attack the officers in their beds, according to The New York Times .

In the lead up to the fight, De La Hoya had penned an open letter to boxing fans calling it a "circus" and a "farce" and warned that the sport "might not ever recover".

"Let's get it straight: In the cage, he would freaking destroy me. Only in the ring", De La Hoya said.

"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.

McGregor exceeded expectations on his boxing debut against Mayweather, taking the undefeated icon 10 rounds, but has made clear his desire to return to mixed martial arts and defend his lightweight title.

Whether De La Hoya is serious about a ring return remains to be seen.
