Oscar De La Hoya Wants Conor McGregor To Fight Canelo Alvarez
Now that Conor McGregor has a boxing license it seems like every boxer and promoter under the sun is salivating for an easy payday against the UFC superstar.
Last week, Manny Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum wanted to talk to Conor about his boxing career and now Oscar De La Hoya wants the Irishman to fight his fighter, Canelo Alvarez.
“If Conor is serious about fighting? First of all, I would love to talk to him and promote him. I mean, imagine Conor McGregor and Golden Boy coming together!” De La Hoya exclaimed in a video with FightHubTV. “But the only fight I would like to see, and this is the one that makes the most sense – as it would be the most exciting and would be a guaranteed knockout – is against Canelo Alvarez. And they’re in the same weight class. So it makes all the sense in the world. Imagine. 154. 160. It would be at 160 actually.”
Conor wants no part of Canelo, he would get knocked out in the first round.
