Now that Conor McGregor has a boxing license and Dana White has made it clear that the Mayweather fight is not going to happen, it seems like every boxer and promoter under the sun is salivating for an easy payday against the UFC superstar.
“If Conor is serious about fighting? First of all, I would love to talk to him and promote him. I mean, imagine Conor McGregor and Golden Boy coming together!” De La Hoya exclaimed in a video with FightHubTV. “But the only fight I would like to see, and this is the one that makes the most sense – as it would be the most exciting and would be a guaranteed knockout – is against Canelo Alvarez. And they’re in the same weight class. So it makes all the sense in the world. Imagine. 154. 160. It would be at 160 actually.”
Conor wants no part of Canelo, he would get knocked out in the first round.
