    Default Oscar on drugs again?

    GOLDEN TICKET ‘I can’t wait to get rid of it’ – Oscar De La Hoya claims his promotion is worth $1BILLION and is ready to sell.

    OSCAR DE LA HOYA claims he can't wait to get rid of Golden Boy Promotions.

    The six-weight world champion reckons he is 'sitting on a billion-dollar company'.

    But he's almost ready to end his career as a boxing promoter.

    De La Hoya was speaking on a promotional tour for his fighter Ryan Garcia's bout with Javier Fortuna next month.

    He admitted he still wants to make some big fights yet - including Garcia against Gervonta Davis.

    De La Hoya told ESPN: "I'm sitting on a billion-dollar company and I can't wait to get rid of it.

    "And most importantly, I can't wait to be the very first fighter ever to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a promoter as well. These are goals that I have.

    "We're sitting on a gold mine. When I'm ready to get out, the time will come.

    But in the meantime, that's the reason I want to make these big fights happen. It's crucial. It's crucial for the sport.

    "It's crucial for my company. It's crucial, most importantly, for the fan base."

    De La Hoya recently revealed he's ready to offer huge money to Davis to make a showdown with Garcia happen.


    De La Hoya told TMZ: "Tank, I know you had your last fight with Floyd Mayweather, and I respect Floyd Mayweather, and think he did a tremendous job with your career.

    "But, I'm ready to offer you a multi, multi, multi, multi million-dollar offer to fight Ryan Garcia.

    "It'll be the biggest purse that Tank Davis has ever made.

    "We're ready and willing to split broadcasters, meaning we can have this fight on Showtime PPV and The Zone PPV.

    "Let's make this fight happen.

    "Everyone makes a s***load of money and we give the fight fans what they want to see."

    A super fight between the pair could only happen after Garcia has faced Javier Fortuna, who he faces in LA on July 16.

    The answer is yes... he probably is. You just never know with Fishnets.

    Anyone offering Tank 50/50 at lightweight is on drugs. Tank is the only PPV proven fighter at LW.

    George Kambosos Jr was easily outpointed in his homecoming defence against Devin Haney.
    The Melbourne encounter saw all three scorecards in favour of Haney (116-112, 116-112, 118-110) and it determined the first four-belt champion at lightweight.

    There have been calls for Kambosos to move aside and allow Haney to face the biggest names in the division, including Gervonta Davis, Vasyl Lomachenko and Ryan Garcia.

    However, it has been revealed by promoter Lou di Bella that Kambosos Jr WILL activate his rematch clause against Haney later this year.
    "Devin came in there and did what he needed to do, and it was a terrific performance by him. It was a boxing clinic," said Lou DiBella to ESNEWS about Haney's performance.

    "I think he's going to exercise the rematch clause , yeah. "I'd be surprised if he didn't. I think the rematch will be difficult for him again, but I do think he can fight better. I do think he'll exercise the rematch clause, but it's too early."

    "He took the chances and did the deal in order to do it," DiBella said about Haney. "Credit to him and his dad, Bill. "They did what they needed to do. They grabbed for that opportunity, and he made use of that opportunity and he couldn't have fought any better than he did.

    "Now he's got all the belts, and he earned them. Probably at the top of the top ten. He's only a kid," said DiBella about where Haney ranks in the pound for pound list. "He's [Haney] going to have a great run ahead of him. He's a tremendous talent, and I'm ready to begin working with him going forward with Top Rank. "That jab [from Haney] was among the best I've ever seen. The young man had an incredible performance. George will be back, he's still a young man himself, but that was really a star-making performance from Devin Haney."

    The proposed rematch for Kambosos Jr-Haney will now provide more optimism for the fight between Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia to take place.
    Promoter Oscar De La Hoya wants to give Tank a two-fight deal with one of the bouts being a multi-million dollar fight against Garcia.

    Davis is regarded as one of the biggest punchers in boxing while Garcia is the most exciting fighter without a world title.

    While he is yet to challenge for world honours, Garcia has delivered highlight reels throughout his career and delivered an incredible stoppage of Luke Campbell in 2020. Both fighters are undefeated and should they collide, it is guaranteed to generate huge pa-per-view numbers. Any chances of a fight between the rivals would either be towards the end of this year or next spring.

    It could be argued that Haney isn't the best since he is yet to fight other standouts, including Lomachenko, Garcia and of course Gervonta. Oscar has it right about it being the most exciting fight in boxing right now, and also about Showtime PPV and The Zone PPV splitting it. Everybody will make a boatload of cash. But now with Kambo activating the rematch clause, WTF.

    No way, the numbers completely disagree. A PPV regular doesn’t split 50/50 with people who have never sold a PPV. If anyone gets 70/30 from Tank it’s just because he’s feeling generous. 60/40 is Tank forcing a fight because nobody makes that money with anyone but Tank. And Tank has sold PPVs against scrubs. It sucks Tank has fought scrubs at all but they show his draw very clearly.

    For example Tank vs Rolly generated 25 million $ between 20+ PPV and 5+ gate.
