De La Hoya has been campaigning to make a megafight between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.

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.
