The way in which Oscar De La Hoya tells it, he would by no means have allowed Canelo Alvarez to struggle Dmitry Bivol. Talking with USA Today, De La Hoya, who after all labored with and guided Canelo for a lot of months, had one other dig at Eddie Hearn. De La Hoya went so far as to say Hearn placing Canelo in with Bivol was “the dumbest transfer in boxing historical past.” This after all is a powerful assertion, and it’s also one which forgets to say that Canelo himself wished the struggle, and requested for the struggle; with Canelo just about calling his personal photographs.
In any case, Canelo can’t return, the struggle with Bivol got here and went with a defeat, and now the Mexican star has to return again. However Oscar doesn’t recommendation Canelo going again in with Bivol.
“I’d by no means have allowed Canelo to struggle Bivol,” De La Hoya informed Lance Pugmire. “Have a look at precisely what occurred. Canelo’s on prime of the world. He’s the king. Why struggle a man that if Canelo fights 10 instances, he loses 10 instances? And he has nothing to achieve. Nothing to win. No one knew Bivol.”
However Canelo did have one thing to achieve: a second world title at 175 kilos. And Canelo, pushing himself with fights that will see him “make historical past” has been roundly applauded for, because the saying goes, daring to be nice. De La Hoya, nevertheless, is having none of it. So what would Oscar have his former fighter do subsequent?
“The subsequent transfer, if I have been his promoter, is to return to 168 the place you’re the champion, have GGG transfer as much as 168, knock him out and be on prime of the world once more,” De La Hoya stated.
However Canelo the proud fighter appears to be heading to a return struggle with Bivol. Heaven is aware of what De La Hoya will say, how he’ll decide the transfer, if Canelo is crushed a second time by the identical man!
Followers await Canelo’s subsequent transfer with nice curiosity. Is Oscar proper, ought to Canelo struggle the third struggle with Golovkin subsequent? Or ought to Canelo, daring once more to be nice, try to get revenge over Bivol? Each fights are massively attention-grabbing match-ups and now could be the time for Canelo to do some critical pondering. As for Hearn, he’ll associate with no matter resolution Canelo makes. Regardless of De La Hoya’s perception, Canelo does name the photographs on his profession, not Hearn.
