Oscar De La Hoya was set to make his return to the boxing world in a match against Vitor Belfort on September 11th last year. Dana White in particular wanted La Hoya to lose badly. It seems he made a huge claim recently as well.

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.

While speaking with DAZN, ‘The Golden Boy’ claimed that a fight against Floyd Mayweather would be bigger than Mayweather fighting Conor McGregor or Jake Paul.

This would be probably the biggest fight out there for him. I believe it would be bigger than him fighting McGregor. It would be bigger than him fighting Logan Paul or whoever he’s bound to fight next. I think that people want to see real fights.”

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.
