Oscar De La Hoya Challenges Conor McGregor To A Fight

To be fair, that penalty will be far more detrimental to the UFC than McGregor himself but one would expect a fine of some sort to follow suit.

When rumors started firing around a year ago about the possibility of McGregor boxing, De La Hoya talked about having the UFC star fight his boxer, Canelo Alvarez. Secretly training. I'm faster than ever, and stronger than ever. Mayweather defeated McGregor by TKO in the 10th round in a record-breaking pay-per-view.

Earlier this year we were treated to an entertaining showdown between boxing great Floyd Mayweather and UFC legend Conor McGregor which got everyone talking. I'll come back for that fight. I'm calling him out. "I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life". That's all I'm going to say.

Like McGregor's last opponent in the ring, Floyd Mayweather Jr, De La Hoya was a major box office draw in his day and so combined with McGregor's star power that could be a huge money-spinner for all concerned. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.

At that point I wanted to make sure Mr Redmond was safe and I wanted to clear the cage.

Loyalist students frustrated as college strike stretches into fifth week
Del Messier, meanwhile, said the offer "enshrines academic freedom", which she called the only key issue still outstanding. However, that is contingent on a faculty vote this week on the College Employer Council's final offer.

According to a source of ESPN, De La Hoya is truly considering a comeback, even if it doesn't involve McGregor.

"I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred and they basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something", Mazzulli said during an appearance on The MMA Hour.

In the lead up to the fight, De La Hoya had penned an open letter to boxing fans calling it a "circus" and a "farce" and warned that the sport "might not ever recover".

The UFC lightweight champion is expected to return to the Octagon for his next outing and he's recently challenged his rivals in the boxing community to show their courage by testing their mettle under mixed martial arts rules but that's not something that would interest "The Golden Boy". In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less?
