Oscar De La Hoya was set to make his return to the boxing world in a match against Vitor Belfort on September 11th. Dana White in particular wanted La Hoya to lose badly.
His boxing match against Vitor Belfort was likely one of many matches as Oscar De La Hoya was determined to make a proper comeback. Unfortunately, that match no longer happened after La Hoya revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized.
Oscar De La Hoya would recover a few days later and made it clear that he was raring to get back to the ring. La Hoya even made a $100 million offer to Floyd Mayweather for a boxing match.
According to TMZ, it was said that Floyd Mayweather is well aware De La Hoya called him out. In fact, Mayweather is up for fighting La Hoya if his $100 million offer is legitimate.
It was also said that those in Mayweather’s camp highly doubt Oscar De La Hoya. Floyd Mayweather beat La Hoya the last time the two crossed paths, so we will have to wait and see if La Hoya will have a better chance the next time the two clash.
