Oscar De La Hoya training for comeback fight with Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor

However, the boxing great recently admitted that he has been training in secret for a potential boxing match against UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

"You know I'm competitive". I've been secretly training, secretly training. I m faster than ever and stronger than ever.

One day after posting (and quickly deleting) a non-remorseful explanation for his actions during the melee he caused at last Friday's Bellator 187 card in Dublin, Ireland, Conor McGregor has changed his tune. Again, I go back to the safety of the fighter. Two rounds. Just one more [fight].

"You will clearly see from the video replay that I only step across and do not wave the fight off. Charlie Ward, understandably so had reeled off in celebration thinking that I had indeed ended the contest and not as I had actually done, called time on what I believed to be the end of the round".

"I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred and they basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something", Mazzulli told The MMA Hour. That's all I'm going to say.

Retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya has apparently been training in hopes of a comeback, almost ten years after he last fought.

De La Hoya, who is almost a decade into retirement, said on Monday that he has been "secretly training" and called out UFC star Conor McGregor.

MTDR official Mike Mazzulli has said the UFC pulled McGregor from a planned bout at UFC 219 on December 30, but the UFC has never announced McGregor would fight on that date. "While trying to support a loyal team-mate and friend, I let my emotions get the best of me and acted out of line".

"I do not wish for any further action to be taken against any party, in particular Conor McGregor, but ultimately that is entirely out of my hands, I hope that the situation can be reviewed, learned from on how we could prevent a repeat instance and then case closed, we move on for the good of the sport".

Now it seems he wants to be a part of what he'd previously described as "a circus", but it remains to be seen if he's truly interested or if this was just a publicity stunt for the new radio show.

"Bloke KO'd on the floor bout a minute straight and the ref trying to say the fights not over Conor", he tweeted. He would freaking destroy me.

Will Oscar De La Hoya fight in 2018? McGregor had some early success - by design, according to Mayweather - before suffering a 10th-round TKO loss. [My confidence] is how I feel now from my training. That record was eventually broken by Manny Pacquiao, who won 11 world titles in eight divisions.

De La Hoya flirted with the idea of a comeback in June 2015 only to rule it out a week later. He's not gonna be making any more money this year and I commend UFC for that.
