De La Hoya on Mayweather rematch: I’m never coming back!

Phil Jay 18/06/2015

Oscar De La Hoya was quick to respond to old rival Floyd Mayweather as the 42 year-old squashed all rumours regarding any return to the sport.

‘The Golden Boy’ had previously stated that if did, and it’s a big if, make a comeback to boxing that he would like to fight someone at the top like Gennady Golovkin.

On hearing this, and during his first interviews since his win over Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather confirmed that he would be interested in fighting De La Hoya again in September.

De La Hoya was unequivocal though and says that there is no chance he would ever lace up the gloves again in a video posted on his Instagram.
