Will former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya actually end up boxing Conor McGregor?

"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said, speaking on DashRadio (h/t The Mac Life). I've been secretly training, bro, secretly training. Secretly training. I'm faster than ever, and stronger than ever.

"I sincerely apologise for my behavior at last weekends" fight event in Dublin, ' McGregor said in a statement on Instagram. Two rounds. Just one more [fight].

"After the event, I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred. That s all I m going to say".

The 44-year-old legend hasn't fought in a professional match in almost a decade.

Conor McGregor is apologizing for storming the cage and getting violent with MMA officials during Bellator 187 in Dublin last week. but he's still trashing the referee.

Although a fight has yet to be officially confirmed, De La Hoya has said he is willing to take on the Irishman in the ring.

Former NFL Colin Kaepernick Receives "Citizen of the Year" By GQ Magazine
Back in August, NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown let it be known he wasn't a fan of Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the U.S. The accompanying piece from GQ is titled, " Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced".


But De La Hoya is wary of the threat posed by the Crumlin-born mixed martial arts fighter, adding: "Let's get it straight - in the cage, he would freaking destroy me". After getting a taste of that boxing money, McGregor said he would keep his options open moving forward regarding whether he fights in the octagon or a boxing ring.

McGregor, 29, was knocked out in the 10th round of that fight, which De La Hoya derided as a "circus" and a "farce".

Despite being retired for nearly a decade, Oscar De La Hoya believes he could destroy Conor McGregor. That would be tough to match, but if there's a healthy paycheck involved for both fighters, you can never say never.

McGregor has not been formally punished for the incident.

Whether De La Hoya is serious about a ring return remains to be seen. (My confidence) is how I feel now from my training.

This is not the first time De La Hoya has considered coming out of retirement.

There's no time frame for a return right now, or whether the UFC would be interested in another co-promotion with De La Hoya's "Golden Boy Promotions". He also fought other greats, including Felix Trinidad, Hector Camacho Sr., Bernard Hopkins, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Shane Mosley (twice) and Manny Pacquiao. So I do commend the UFC to some extent for doing that.
