De La Hoya Blasts Wilder-Joshua’s Appeal In U.S.

Seems Oscar De La Hoya is looking to move the focus away from Canelo Alvarez’ suspension, and is poking at both Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

Early Thursday morning, the Golden Boy Promotions CEO took to Twitter in an attempt to court them to his promotion with the promise of making them both bigger stars in the United States.


The gist of De La Hoya’s Tweet storm on Thursday morning, seemed to be that while Joshua is a “national” star, he doesn’t have the pull he can have in the United States, and that Golden Boy would provide that for him. The same for Wilder who De La Hoya has been trying to woo back to the Golden Boy stable for sometime, claiming with no real promoter (Wilder is aligned with Lou DiBella and manager Al Haymon), Wilder can’t make big money.

While Joshua isn’t particularly interested in fighting in the United States anytime soon, and Wilder content with his team, it seems that De La Hoya is once again looking to stir the pot or throw his shots in the same way he did in 2017 during the hype for McGregor-Mayweather.
