Oscar De La Hoya plans to return to boxing. Of course, Dana White had to make sure he got his jabs in on the news.
The 47-year-old De La Hoya, who hasn’t fought since a December 2008 loss to Manny Pacquiao, recently announced he’s plotting a comeback to compete. The welterweight boxer-turned-promoter is looking to add onto his impressive boxing resume (36-9-0).
White, who has been an enemy ever since De La Hoya spoke out about poor UFC pay, has never been hesitant to take verbal shot. While took advantage of the opportunity when asked for his thoughts during Saturday night’s UFC on ESPN 15 post-fight news conference.
“Cocaine isn’t cheap,” White said. “It’s expensive. You’ve got to make money.”
De La Hoya co-founded his boxing promotion company in 2002, and in 2018, began promoting MMA, too, under the Golden Boy MMA banner. His role as a competitor to White, alongside his advocacy for fair fighter pay, really gets under White's skin.
There have yet to be details about when or against whom De La Hoya could have his comeback fight. For the meantime, the boxer is parked rent-free in Dana White's head.
