Oscar De La Hoya rages ‘are you f***ing kidding me?’ when asked who would win between himself and a prime Canelo Alvarez

, Oscar De La Hoya rages ‘are you f***ing kidding me?’ when asked who would win between himself and a prime Canelo Alvarez

OSCAR DE LA HOYA appears ready to reignite his war of words with former charge Canelo Alvarez.

De La Hoya previously promoted the Mexican superstar until the pair fell out explosively over a bumper broadcast deal.

Oscar De La Hoya promoted Canelo from 2010 to 2020

The split resulted in lawsuits and has since seen former six-weight world champion De La Hoya calling for Canelo to face him in the ring.

Now De La Hoya has reacted dismissively to being asked who would win in a fight between the men if both were ‘in their prime’.

He said simply: “Are you f***ing kidding me? Come on.”

Canelo split from De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions in 2020 after alleging breaches in the blockbuster £280 million broadcast deal signed with DAZN.

The lawsuit alleged Golden Boy and DAZN had caused a minimum of £216m in damages.

With the four-weight champion no longer part of his stable, De La Hoya then called out Canelo and taunted him for ‘only having power’.

As recently as July the 48-year-old was still talking up a potential bout with the man 17 years his junior.

But De La Hoya has since turned his attention to calling out former rival Floyd Mayweather for a potential payday.

Canelo next fights American Caleb Plant in November in an attempt to unify the super-middleweight division.

The pair recently brawled at a pre-fight press conference, with Plant suffering a gash to his face from a surprise Canelo punch.
