After announcing last week that he is making a boxing comeback at age 47, Oscar De La Hoya seems to be saying a lot about getting boxing back on track.
From what Oscar is saying, boxing cannot do without its “biggest star” and the return of a man approaching his fifties having been out of the ring for thirteen years. I think there maybe a few that will disagree with him.
“If anyone doubted how badly boxing needs Canelo – the sport’s biggest star – back in the ring, look no further than the terrible ratings from boxing on network TV the last few weeks,” stated the Golden Boy via social media.
“It’s a f**king embarrassment that sports-starved fans are flocking to baseball and the UFC, and largely ignoring the greatest sport in the world. I have been working tirelessly day and night with our partners at DAZN to get a Canelo fight done ASAP and get our sport back on track.”
