WATCH: De La Hoya Claims Canelo-GGG Rematch In September

Following Gennady Golovkin telling reporters they’d need to ask Canelo Alvarez if he wants a rematch, TMZ got the next best thing in his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya.

In an interview conducted while De La Hoya was walking to his car, the Golden Boy Promotions founder claimed that Alvarez is being thrown under the bus following two failed drug tests.

“Canelo is getting really the short end of the stick here because obviously he’s a popular fighter and a lot of people are gonna hate on him,” claims De La Hoya.

De La Hoya also sticks up for Alvarez’, and backs up the fighter’s claims of accidental ingestion of clenbuterol, due to it being in Mexican Beef.

“But he’s been one of the cleanest fighters I’ve known. He’s passed numerous of tests, and you know … it was very unfortunate.”

When asked about the Jordan Brand commercial featuring trainer Abel Sanchez eating a steak, making light of the situation, De La Hoya was blunt and to the point.

“To me it’s bulls**t. Once they fight in September, I’ll tell you one thing — Canelo’s gonna freaking whale on him.”
