Oscar De La Hoya vs. Dana White? … I’m game.

51-year-old boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya made it clear that he has an interest in fighting 54-year-old UFC head honcho Dana White, wanting to do so in a crossover event.

De La Hoya is willing to scrap it out with Dana, however, under one circumstance: a bantamweight fight needs to be booked between UFC fighter Sean O’Malley and boxer Ryan Garcia. If that happens, De La Hoya said that he wants to settle some beef with the UFC boss.

“I would actually entertain that because Ryan can fight in the main event with this kid. And maybe I could do Dana on the co-main,” said De La Hoya. “We’re cool. I mean, I don’t know if we’re cool. I don’t even talk to the guy.”


I like both Oscar De La Hoya and Dana White, so I would stay neutral, but you better believe that I’m like most people and want to see this glorious popcorn content.

As far as who I think would win?

That’s a tough one for me. I’ve seen some say the “Golden Boy” would win, while others would say one of Trump’s besties would win. Personally, it’s a toss-up, but with De La Hoya being De La Hoya — a boxing legend — I think you gotta give the edge to him over Dana.

But still, I think this would be one hell of a bout.
