Oscar De La Hoya: Former Boxer Calls Floyd Mayweather Jr. ‘Boring’ in Playboy’s December Issue
De La Hoya fought with Mayweather in 2007, creating what at the time was the largest pay per view draw in the sport’s history (the mark broke earlier this year) . De La Hoya helped choose Mayweather from truly being a star within the sport to a brand-new degree of popularity.
Oscar has made a decision to point out all Floyd’s flaws now that Mayweather has insisted he’s retired following his triumph over Andre Berto in September.
“Another motive boxing is better off without you: You were frightened. Fearful of taking chances. Fearful of danger.”
De La Hoya is a supporter who focuses on setting up the most effective fights for Golden Boy Promotions. One as a combatant and advocate of Oscar’s greatest attributes is that he’s unafraid to fight with the greatest or create matches that enthusiasts need to see, unlike Floyd.
You took the easy way out. When you weren’t dancing around fading stars (show idea for you: Dancing Around the Fading Stars), you were beating up on outclassed opponents.
Oscar subsequently closed his after using a knockout strike of Mayweather when discussing “Cash’s” retirement.
But this really isn’t new land for the Golden Boy.
Maybe you’ll put your true skills to work and open a used-car dealership or run a circus. Or maybe you’ll wind up back on Dancing With the Stars. It’s a job that’s safe, pays well and lets you run around on stage. Something you’ve been doing for most of your career.
De La Hoya took a shot on a lousy undercard for a fight show at competing promoter Bob Arum. That appeared to be with De La Hoya’s total want to enhance the standard of fights in the boxing world in subject. Subsequently in a tweet Oscar was tough on Mayweather in September.
Perhaps we are discovering that De La Hoya still holds a grudge over what Mayweather did two years back with Floyd.
