Scar De La Hoya offers to help Dana White in his boxing endeavors

Oscar De La Hoya and Dana White have not had the friendliest relationship throughout the years. For the most part, it has been a fairly one-sided volatility pitch from White towards the legend.

By constantly mentioning the substance abuse history of From the pot every time his name is mentioned, he is likely to White and De La Hoya may not be working together any time soon. But it will not be for lack of effort from The Golden Boy.

All the power to Dana for trying.De La Hoya told CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri.What the brothers Fertitta and Dana did with the UFC is incredible. Boxing is a fragmented sport. There are so many promoters, so many fighters that are with different promoters. So it’s really hard to consolidate the whole sport. But there is always a way.

White recently expressed the unlikelihood that he would ever enter the world of boxing. after the Zuffa Boxing concept never got off the ground. The only time White was directly involved with “the sweet science” was in the crossover mega-show that pitted Floyd Mayweather against Conor McGregor in August 2017 (see highlights).

Like White, De La Hoya has only ventured into the world of his fellow promoters once. with a single mixed martial arts event (mma) in November 2018. But the less we talk about it, the better.

I would gladly extend a helping hand or maybe even a partnership with Dana White and Golden Boy Promotions.De La Hoya said.In fact, I am extending the olive branch here and maybe even working together. Boxing is not easy to handle, but there is a way. When I started Golden Boy Promotions, I think 21 years ago, it wasn’t easy and it’s not easy now. But there is a formula for how to work with wrestlers, managers, promoters and networks. So if Dana, if you’re still interested, I’m more than happy to discusstalk about how we can consolidate or fix this sport once and for all.

White has a tumultuous history with Oscar De La Hoya dating back to the boxing match of Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather in 2017. At that moment, From the pot was open about the fight, calling it a ‘circus’ and a ‘joke’ that would spoil the game.
