If Floyd Mayweather was ever to step inside the Octagon, longtime rival in the ring and in the boardroom, Oscar De La Hoya thinks the undefeated boxer has a shot.
According to an interview with TMZ, De La Hoya claimed that Mayweather may have a shot, as rumors grow of an MMA rematch against Conor McGregor who he faced inside the boxing ring in August of 2017.
“I’ve thought about it, and he probably can do well,” said the Golden Boy. “Maybe you heard it here first, but I wish him all the best, because being in that cage is no joke, let me tell you. … If a boxer, and one of my colleagues, is gonna go inside the cage, I obviously have to go and support Floyd.”
De La Hoya did admit though that he doesn’t see the 41 year old making the move realistically, even though McGregor is down to face Mayweather in his element.
