It didn’t take long for the response from the multi-world boxing champion, Óscar de la Hoya, to the tweet of the mixed martial arts star, Conor McGregor, and at first it was thought that it could have been a timid reaction, but the reality was no.

The ‘Golden Boy’ confirmed what he had said days before, that he is capable of knocking out ‘The Notorious’ in just two rounds.

“Just for the record: McGregor, I never challenged you,” wrote De la Hoya on his social networks, which showed that perhaps he wanted to stop everything there, although later he continued. “They just asked me a question, and I simply told the truth,” added the top boy at Golden Boy Promotions, who last December turned 11 years old outside of the lawyers; however, he had agreed an exhibition fight with Julio César Chávez in Tijuana for June.

And indeed, De la Hoya, 47, was asked on the ‘State of Combat’ podcast what would happen if he were in a ring with McGregor. “” Two rounds, “said the world champion from six different divisions. “Two rounds because one of my characteristics is that he always went out to kill. Conor McGregor, I love what he does in the Octagon, I respect him and I see him all the time. But in a boxing ring, the story is totally different.”

Hours later, McGregor, 31, boxing 0-1 after the loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2017, wrote: “I accept your challenge, Oscar de la Hoya.”

A few days ago, the rumor emerged that the DAZN platform would be interested in bringing McGregor to their ranks and at the time rumors of a possible Canelo Álvarez lawsuit, but it seems that the Oscar, at least for now, has more intensity.

McGregor, who has been one of the most active athletes in the world in the fight against the coronavirus, comes from winning in the first round in his most recent presentation in the UFC, leaving Donald Cerrone out of action in January, recovering the path of the triumph after falling to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.

As for De La Hoya, who captured the world’s top titles from light junior to middleweight, he has not seen live action since he was defeated by Manny Pacquiao in eight rounds in December 2008.

He finished his career with a 39-6 mark (30 KO) and was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2014.
