Oscar De La Hoya said he can knock out Conor McGregor in 2 rounds … and Conor McGregor says PROVE IT — calling out the legend for a real-deal boxing match.
SO, WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?!? LET’S DO THIS!!!!
Here’s how it all got started … 47-year-old ODLH was asked about his chances against the 31-year-old UFC superstar earlier this week … saying it would be a cakewalk.
“2 rounds,” the Golden Boy told “The State of Combat” podcast. “Because one thing about me … I went for the kill always.”
“And look, Conor McGregor is – I love him in the Octagon. I respect him. I watch him all the time.”
“But, the boxing ring is a whole different story. It’s a whole different story.”
Conor — who’s always wanted a second shot at a boxing match following his loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2017 — heard what ODLH had to say … and he wants the legend to put his money where his mouth is … IN THE RING!!!
“I accept your challenge, Oscar de la Hoya,” Conor tweeted.
Now, Oscar (39-6) hasn’t had a pro fight since losing to Manny Pacquiao in 2008 by a referee technical decision … but the Golden Boy’s confident he can shake off any ring rust against the 0-1 Conor.
Remember, ODLH made a similar threat to Conor back in 2017 … saying he was in shape and ready to throw down with the Notorious.
There’s only one way to find out — PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
