Oscar De La Hoya’s Still Blasting, Shows No Respect For Conor Following Mayweather Bout

Boxing phenom Oscar De La Hoya recently decided to share his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. at Saturday’s big event.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, as transcribed by MMA Fighting, De La Hoya explained that he believes Floyd Mayweather Jr. allowed Conor McGregor to hit him early in the fight.

“Because Mayweather let him. The first four of five rounds, he let him do that. … The punches are coming from different angles. It was a bit awkward to watch, actually.”

The boxer then continued, “After seeing Saturday’s fight, Canelo probably would have knocked [McGregor] out in one round or two rounds,” De La Hoya said. “Canelo is a knockout guy, he’s a guy who’s not gonna trick people into making a fight last longer than it should last.

“MMA fighters are amazing fighters and I respect them dearly and boxing fighters are boxers. That’s just the bottom line.”
