Promoter Oscar De La Hoya spoke openly about his past personal problems and beef with Floyd Mayweather recently on an interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Power 105.1 FM.
During the radio appearance, which was simultaneously recorded for YouTube, De La Hoya responded to a flat out question from the host about the infamous pictures of him dressed in women’s lingerie.
De La Hoya had gone through a tough phase of his life in the mid-2000’s, problems which flared up again not so long ago and the ex-fighter was candid in his response.
“It was hust a bad time in my life. That’s it,” he said.
“In America, you have the opportunity to rise and shine and get better and be better and that’s exactly what I’ve done,” added De La Hoya.
Aksed about his failed relationship with Mayweather and what he thinks of the former pound for pound king, De La Hoya added: “I think he’s one of the best fighters to ever lace up the gloves, but I just don’t like the stuff he did in his personal life.
The ‘Golden Boy’ was then quizzed on whether Mayweather could say the same thing about his previous drug addition, to which he replied: “Yes, but I’d never hit a woman”.
Animosity between the pair surfaced again during fight week for Mayweather’s clash with Conor McGregor, about which De La Hoya once again reiterated ‘Money’ had disrespected the sport.
