When Conor McGregor was scheduled to fight Floyd Mayweather in 2017, former world champion and CEO of Golden Boy promotions Oscar De La Hoya slammed the match-up.

At that time, Oscar De La Hoya called the match-up between McGregor and Mayweather a ‘Circus’. However, he wouldn’t say no to a potential match-up with the Irish star.

Oscar De La Hoya and Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor is the biggest star in the world of Mixed Martial Arts and Oscar De La Hoya wants a shot at him. In a recent appearance on CBS Sports’ State of Combat podcast, the former six-division world champion said that it would take him two-rounds to beat the Irishman.

Two rounds,” De La Hoya said (h/t MMA Mania). “Come on, brother. Two rounds! Because one thing about me: I went for the kill always. And look, Conor McGregor, I love him in the Octagon, I respect him, I watch him all the time, but the boxing ring is a whole different story. A whole different story.”

Oscar De La Hoya has talked about fighting Conor McGregor in the past as well. Back in 2017, he admitted that he was secretly training and he could beat McGregor in two rounds.

You know I still have it in me. I’ve been secretly training,” De La Hoya said in 2017 (h/t Uproxx). “Secretly training. I’m faster than ever and stronger than ever. I know I could take out Conor McGregor in two rounds. I’ll come back for that fight. Two rounds. Just one more. I’m calling him out. Two rounds. That’s all I need. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Oscar De La Hoya: I respect Dana White

It’s no secret that Oscar and UFC president Dana White have been beefing for quite some time now. He commended Dana White on the way he has grown the sport of MMA.

I commend and respect Dana,” he said. “We did have our differences. When I wanted to get involved with the MMA, I did Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz, it was a huge success. I dipped my toes into the water, and I experienced it. It was actually wonderful. I love MMA. Dana came out and criticized me and ridiculed me and all that stuff. You know what? Dana is doing a phenomenal job in defending his sport, growing his sport, and he’s doing it big. He’s doing it great, man. I commend him.”

Do you guys think Oscar could take on McGregor?
