De La Hoya responds to Dana White's criticism

De La Hoya responds to Dana White's criticism

"I'm a big Conor McGregor fan", Hatton said, "and if he ever watches this interview I hope he doesn't take this to heart, because he's like me". He believes Mayweather vs. McGregor won't provide a net benefit to the sport of boxing. "Obviously, he says my fight sucks, I say the same thing". After speaking with a collection of ticket brokers, sports marketers and people now and formerly working in the boxing business, ESPN's Darren Rovell predicts that a Mayweather-McGregor fight could bring in nearly as much as the $623.5 million Mayweather's fight against Manny Pacquiao made.

Dana White admits he likes Oscar De La Hoya and respects everything he's done - and continues to do - in the boxing arena. It really is because McGregor is not a boxer.

The superfight has been talked about for several months, but after McGregor signed his end of the bargain late last month, it is now down to Mayweather to agree terms and attempt to go 50-0 at 40-years-old.

De La Hoya is not wrong in his assessment; the fight is a joke. But that point is moot considering the amount of money the fight is expected to draw as a special attraction. But most people who have covered both sports don't see any chance that McGregor can win. "It's impossible. I couldn't beat him".

Floyd Mayweather is the master defensive boxer. In our generation? Against Mayweather? Since no one bought that idea, De La Hoya now wants to preach to the world that Mayweather vs. McGregor will ruin boxing like Mayweather's fight with Manny Pacquiao did in 2015.

He added: "If the truth be known, I would like Conor to splatter him".

In the second video, De La Hoya spoke positively on a potential boxing match between McGregor and Canelo Alvarez, whom De La Hoya represents.
