De La Hoya: Mayweather Trying To Steal Canelo-GGG Spotlight
The war of words between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather seems to be one of the constants in the world of boxing, as both fighters turned promoters prod one another.
Last week, Mayweather trolled followers across social media, via an attempt to convince people he’s going to make his debut in Mixed Martial Arts.
In two videos, Mayweather is seen walking into an MMA cage and showcasing a few moves.
In a report from Boxing Scene, De La Hoya believes Mayweather is once again looking for ways to take away coverage from Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin.
Last year, amidst the chaos of the Mayweather-McGregor road show, De La Hoya chastize both men for calling this a professional fight, and attempting to steal the shine from the first Alvarez- Golovkin fight three weeks after the Mayweather-McGregor fight in the same building, the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
And now with the rematch officially signed, De La Hoya believes Mayweather is once again trying to tale the spotlight away from the megafight.
“…It’s fine. Our fight is gonna do 3 million homes, so we’re good,” De La Hoya told TMZ.
“He can’t let anyone have attention so he does this. He’ll never fight in the UFC.”
