Oscar De La Hoya training for comeback fight with Conor McGregor

Conor Mc Gregor GSP

Just 29 years old and a pro-fighter since 2008, with 15 wins by knock out under his belt, McGregor is an icon to his faithful fans who remain absorbed by his peerless skill, his fearless attitude and his infamous swagger.

In an interview with Dash Radio, De La Hoya even claimed that he could knockout McGregor within two rounds. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever.

2017 might go down the most lucrative year in Conor McGregor's entire career but it's also been the most controversial by far. I think that's very important to understand that fighter safety is the most important thing in the world because without fighter safety, the sport would not proceed to the next level like it always had.

THE fight no one was asking for, could still happen. Two rounds, that's all I need.

It's been nearly nine years since De La Hoya last fought but, having seen the money that was made when Mayweather dusted off his gloves to school "The Notorious" in his boxing debut, De La Hoya is eager to earn a similar payday. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.

However, it should be noted that De La Hoya was actually one of the loudest critics when the Mayweather Vs McGregor fight was first announced, declaring it to be a dark day for the sport of boxing.

Case Keenum throws four touchdown passes in win over Redskins
In two career games against the Redskins at FedEx Field, the Vikings receiver has 17 receptions for 242 yards and 1 touchdown. Frankly, when you are able to move the ball well and the game is calling for that, it's fun.

But De La Hoya is wary of the threat posed by the Crumlin-born mixed martial arts fighter, adding: "Let's get it straight - in the cage, he would freaking destroy me".

"He would destroy me".

The Dublin native who fairly held his own against the undefeated Mayweather could soon be heading for another massive payday if the legend that is Oscar De la Hoya has his way.

"I've been working out for the last five months". [My confidence] is how I feel now from my training.

Like McGregor's last opponent in the ring, Floyd Mayweather Jr, De La Hoya was a major box office draw in his day and so combined with McGregor's star power that could be a huge money-spinner for all concerned. "I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life".
