Tony Ferguson Believes He Knows The Motive Behind Conor McGregor's Bellator Antics

Oscar De La Hoya has not fought in nine years, but the 44-year-old is willing to come out of retirement to face Conor McGregor. He would also have marginally more chance of success against an older fighter who has been inactive for almost a decade and lost four out of his last seven bouts.

'You know I'm competitive, ' De La Hoya said.

"I'm faster than ever".

Earlier this year we were treated to an entertaining showdown between boxing great Floyd Mayweather and UFC legend Conor McGregor which got everyone talking. I think that's very important to understand that fighter safety is the most important thing in the world because without fighter safety, the sport would not proceed to the next level like it always had. Two rounds. Just one more. Two rounds. That's all I need. The UFC lightweight champion reportedly earned $130 million for his tenth round stoppage loss to Mayweather in August and the only place he is likely to achieve another payday of that magnitude is the boxing ring.

"Mr Redmond was knocked - I don't want to say he was unconscious - but he was hit quite heavy".

I'm looking for the best ideas about how to make sure this reinvestment directly benefits students who have faced hardship". Matthews said she "will work with students and colleges starting immediately to develop the parameters of the fund".


De La Hoya made the announcement on the debut of "Golden Boy Radio with Tattoo and the Crew", a digital radio show for Golden Boy Promotions, which De La Hoya is CEO of. But, then McGregor was booked to box Mayweather, and De La Hoya blasted the bout, and even called on fans to protest the fight. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio. "I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life".

It's not clear if De La Hoya is being entirely serious.

McGregor was stopped in the 10th round when he stepped into the boxing ring for the first time as a professional, with Mayweather's vastly superior technique and staying power ultimately proving too much for the Irishman.

De La Hoya believes he could defeat Conor McGregor in just two rounds. In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less?
