De La Hoya: McGregor should fight amateurs first

Makes Statement

De La Hoya says boxing will be a “joke” if McGregor takes on Mayweather without having warm-up fights.

It would be a joke, it would be an embarrassment for boxing, if an MMA fighter were to go into the ring. It would be a no-contest. It would be the same thing if a fighter went into the Octagon, it would be an embarrassment for MMA. If McGregor gets inside a boxing ring, he’ll get outclassed easy. McGregor has never fought a boxer, ever in his life. In all seriousness, he should start off by fighting an amateur boxer, win a few amateur fights, maybe go on to win the Golden Gloves or something, and then when you turn pro he should fight a four-rounder, [in] which maybe he’ll get beat. But he should get experience in boxing and then call out the best. You cannot be calling out a top fighter in boxing right off the bat.

De La Hoya wants Canelo Alvarez vs. McGregor

Makes Statement

De la Hoya says the only boxing fight that makes sense to him is McGregor vs. 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! 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.

Oscar De La Hoya “Only fight that makes sense, McGregor vs. Canelo! At 160!”
