‘It was disrespectful… you just don’t do that.’
Oscar De La Hoya and Dana White have repeatedly exchanged jibes via the media in recent weeks. However, it seems that Golden Boy feels as if he is on the high ground claiming that the UFC President was extremely disrespectful by booking Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor just three weeks before Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin are finally due to throw down.
“It was disrespectful,” Oscar said. “I would have thought that Dana White would have a little more respect with this boxing event taking place, because look, you just don’t do that.”
“It’s like having the Super Bowl and then three weeks later the World Series takes place, the final game. It just doesn’t happen.”
“We have the whole year to stage these types of big events … They could have maybe staged it in November or December but, look, it is what it is.”
“We have a super fight here. We have a real fight, and that’s exactly what we’re focusing on.”
