De La Hoya Eyes Conor McGregor: I'd Stop Him in Two Rounds!

WWE Top 10’s Wildest Superstar Distractions Conor Mc Gregor Attacks Officials At Bellator MMA Event

The boxing great called the fight a "circus" and spoke publicly several times against the fight taking place.

De la Hoya also ruled out any possibility of facing McGregor under UFC rules.

In an interview on Golden Boy Radio (h/t CBSSports.com's Brian Campbell), De La Hoya said he has been training and challenged McGregor.

"You know I'm competitive". I've been secretly training, secretly training.

McGregor was filmed pushing referee Marc Goddard and striking a Bellator employee after his SBG teammate Charlie Ward scored a first round TKO win over compatriot John Redmond in the Three Arena last Friday. It's unforgivable. Never come back, ever. Two rounds. Just one more [fight]. "Two rounds. That's all I need". "No, [the fight would have to be] in the ring", De La Hoya said. Now a successful promoter of the likes of Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto, the 44-year-old ridiculed the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor as more spectacle than competition.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour on Monday, Mazzulli added that during his conversation with UFC officials, he was informed that McGregor has been removed from the promotion's annual, big, end-of-year spectacular.

Now, however, De La Hoya appears eager to participate in a similar "farce".

He then climbed back on top of the cage after being chucked out, and threw punches at an official below who was trying to get him to come down.

"I've been working out for the last five months".

"Every day just keeps getting better".

"It's got to be worth my while but this is very serious", De La Hoya said at the time, mentioning a desire to face either Golovkin or have a rematch with Mayweather, who outpointed him in a 2007 fight that set the since-broken pay-per-view record.
