Oscar De La Hoya has been both supportive and critical of Conor McGregor‘s attempts to get a boxing match. He was supportive when it came to one of the boxer’s he promotes in the equation, but has been highly critical of McGregor trying to box Floyd Mayweather, especially when McGregor says that he can beat Mayweather.

With a high profile boxing match to promote between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, De La Hoya still has some harsh words for Mayweather vs. McGregor, saying on ESPN that the fight “sucks.”

      The fight behind Conor and Mayweather itself, or the fact Oscar is using the infamy and hype behind this exhibition circus to promote himself, his upcoming fights and his fighters? If the latter then yeah. A little bit. It’s also working. Getting him the exposure he’s after.

      If the former, I’ve kind of got this odd curiosity going. Like this weird freak show you just can’t turn away from. For me, it’s a win / win. See Conor humiliated or see Mayweather humiliated. Always a little joyful watching narcissistic egos get a little deflated.

      Thats called prostitution.

    I was interested until he dropped his promotion into the mix. Now it sounds like his promotion isn’t getting enough hype…

  • Dyler Turden

    He has a point about the first few minutes being interesting and after that it’s probably going to be Mayweather domination … but then again, Conor McGregor has been able to pull off some crazy S#*+
