DE LA HOYA WANTS FANS TO BOYCOTT MCGREGOR VS MAYWEATHER

Former boxing champion and now promoter Oscar De La Hoya took to Facebook yesterday to pen an open letter to fans asking them to boycott the highly anticipated Mayweather McGregor mega-fight. Saying in part, At this point, only we can shut the circus down by making it clear that we won’t pay to see a joke of a fight and telling our casual-fan friends that they shouldn’t either.”

The Golden Boy also goes on to share, “But if you thought Mayweather/Pacquiao was a black eye for our sport – a matchup between two of the best pound-for-pound fighters that simply didn’t deliver — just wait until the best boxer of a generation dismantles someone who has never boxed competitively at any level – amateur or professional. Our sport might not ever recover.” You can read the open letter here.
