It looks like the feud between CEO of Golden Boy Promotions and boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya and Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White isn’t ending anytime soon. It all started after Oscar made a trilogy fight between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell and it ended up with Liddell getting knocked out in the first round.
Immediately after the fight, Dana White threw profanity-laced criticism towards Oscar De La Hoya calling him a ‘cokehead’.
Although, Oscar also criticised Dana White for paying UFC fighters less money and said that he has 50-60 fighters calling him and said that they want to join Golden Boy Promotions.
But now all hell has broken loose as it looks like the boxing legend Oscar is not interested in a verbal war of words anymore as he has challenged Dana to a three-round boxing match on Cinco De Mayo.

“Let’s get in the ring,” Oscar De La Hoya said. “Let’s get in the ring, three rounds. Let’s do this. Let’s do this under Canelo [Alvarez], Cinco de Mayo. I’ll even give you five months so you can get off the juice, and then we can get in great shape and then we go three rounds. Look, I’m going to give you what, a 50-pound advantage? It’s ok. I can take you on. Let’s do it.”
