Oscar De La Hoya Speaking to The 3 Knockdown Rule Podcast
The “Golden Boy” Speaks About The Canelo Split
“First couple of weeks I was a little down on myself thinking what did I do wrong, what did the company do wrong to deserve this, but when you’re transparent and when you do everything right, correct, and all the cards are laid out, it’s like you can feel good about yourself and say, ‘I’ve built a great champion, I’ve built a superstar. I got him the biggest contract in sports history.’ I should feel proud of that. I’m over it, I’m good.
“I’m sure fighters always think that the grass is greener on the other side. Unfortunately, most of those fighters that think that way always come back to this side of the road. Look, I wish (Alvarez) all the best. I’m sure it wasn’t his decision. I’m sure it’s people around him, people maybe that got into his ear.
“I think it wasn’t close (getting back together during negotiations). When you have a fighter convinced for some reason then it’s hard for him to go back on his decision because look fighters are very proud. I wish him all the best. If somebody promised him more than what we had for him or offered him, and (he) doesn’t get it, it’s not going to look good. When you’re a fighter, you’re stubborn.
“Look, we’re going to keep doing what we’re going to do. We have an amazing stable of prospects and champions. I’m really excited about all of our potential to really create the next superstars. It’s going to be fun.”
