The tweet that echoed around the sportsworld yesterday from @TheNotoriousMMA better known to us as the Irish MMA Superstar, Conor McGregor. "I accept your challenge, Oscar De La Hoya." Ohhhhh Man! Looky looky what we have here.
Looks like 47 year old Oscar De La Hoya went looking for a fight and found one.
"Two rounds," De La Hoya said when asked about the fight on CBS Sports' State of Combat podcast. "Oh come on, brother. Two rounds. One thing about me is I went for the kill, always. Look, Conor McGregor -- I love him in the Octagon, I respect him, I watch him all the time. But the boxing ring is a whole different story, it's a whole different story."
Oscar De La Hoya has not fought a match in over ten years. Since his retirement, he has dedicated himself to successfully running one of boxings' biggest promotion companies; Golden Boy Promotions.
McGregor fought his first boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in August 2017 with record breaking PPV sales. Since then, McGregor has shown great interest & desire to continue his boxing career.
Although Oscar is far from his prime, it would be great to see this fight come into fruition. It would be another historic fight to add to the books. Who do you guys have?
