Recently, he shared about what would happen if he enters a boxing match with Conor McGregor – a fighter that is 17 years younger than him.

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.” On the other hand, this was not the first time that De La Hoya has made this claim.

Besides, Oscar De La Hoya also shared some kind words about UFC President Dana White. “I commend and respect Dana. 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 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.”
