De La Hoya Willing To Reconcile With White
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya is willing to end his very public feud with former friend, UFC President Dana White.
White, who has sparred with De La Hoya in the media due to White’s involvement in the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight, which was only a few weeks before the Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin fight, which was co-promoted by De La Hoya.
De La Hoya was one of the most vocal critics of the Mayweather-McGregor matchup, and did his best to persuade boxing fans to avoid purchasing that event.
White would not hold his tongue in regards to the retired boxer, especially when De La Hoya teased a return to the right to fight McGregor.
Yet, with the growing prospect of White making a move into promoting Boxing events, De La Hoya is willing to end the feud and have a sit down between the two promoters.
When White made it known that he would move ahead with a boxing brand under the UFC umbrella, he said he would meet with every promoter not named Oscar De La Hoya or Bob Arum.
The acrimony between White and Arum has been well documented, and will never seem to be settled, but De La Hoya is hoping that the two can talk.
“It’s surprising he wants to get into boxing and hasn’t gotten a hold of the biggest promoter in the sport,” De La Hoya said to TMZ.
De La Hoya did issue a warning, that White would not be able to replicate his UFC success in the sport of boxing.
“It’s gonna be very hard to try and do what he did with the UFC, because there’s a little company by the name of Golden Boy Promotions in the way,” De La Hoya said.
