The six-weight world champion reckons he is ‘sitting on a billion-dollar company’.
Oscar De La Hoya said he can’t wait to get rid of Golden Boy Promotions
But he’s almost ready to end his career as a boxing promoter.
De La Hoya was speaking on a promotional tour for his fighter Ryan Garcia’s bout with Javier Fortuna next month.
He admitted he still wants to make some big fights yet – including Garcia against Gervonta Davis.
De La Hoya told ESPN: “I’m sitting on a billion-dollar company and I can’t wait to get rid of it.
“And most importantly, I can’t wait to be the very first fighter ever to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a promoter as well. These are goals that I have.
“We’re sitting on a gold mine. When I’m ready to get out, the time will come.
But in the meantime, that’s the reason I want to make these big fights happen. It’s crucial. It’s crucial for the sport.
“It’s crucial for my company. It’s crucial, most importantly, for the fan base.”
De La Hoya recently revealed he’s ready to offer huge money to Davis to make a showdown with Garcia happen.
De La Hoya told TMZ: “Tank, I know you had your last fight with Floyd Mayweather, and I respect Floyd Mayweather, and think he did a tremendous job with your career.
“But, I’m ready to offer you a multi, multi, multi, multi million-dollar offer to fight Ryan Garcia.
“It’ll be the biggest purse that Tank Davis has ever made.
“We’re ready and willing to split broadcasters, meaning we can have this fight on Showtime PPV and The Zone PPV.
“Let’s make this fight happen.
“Everyone makes a s***load of money and we give the fight fans what they want to see.”
A super fight between the pair could only happen after Garcia has faced Javier Fortuna, who he faces in LA on July 16.
