Opponent yet unamed but he says he also wants Mayweather rematch
Oscar De La Hoya, 48, said Friday in Las Vegas that he will be making his boxing comeback on July 3. De La Hoya made the surprise announcement at a news conference at the Venetian for upstart promoter Triller Fight Club. Snoop Dogg was also in attendance.
De La Hoya — who has been discussing a return to boxing for a long time — will be looking to fight at a large venue in Texas, possibly AT&T Stadium, Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Triller parent company Proxima Media, told ESPN. Kavanaugh told Yahoo Sports that De La Hoya’s goal is to fight Floyd Mayweather, while telling ESPN a fight against a big-name UFC fight also is possible.
