Retired boxer Oscar Dela Hoya has made an emphatic statement that the Mayweather/McGregor fight was just a facade.

The now boxing promoter was speaking on Power 105’s 'The Breakfast Club':

Dela Hoya confidently did say:

“The fight was a disrespect to boxing. Boxing is old school. Boxing is not the kind of sport that will have two fighters carry themselves to the tenth round. Mayweather is the purest best boxer on the planet today. You have Mayweather carry McGregor to about 5 round so that in the 10th round he can take his money in the sport book.”

“It is no secret that Mayweather tried to bet on himself winning in the 10th Round. You(Mayweather) fighting a UFC fighter and cannot throw a punch for four rounds. The best fighter cannot throw a punch for four rounds? What does that tell you?"

Oscar Dela Hoya is now a boxing promoter with his own firm “Golden Boy Promotions”. His firm are promoting the next big fight of the boxing calendar after Mayweather/Macgregor.

This features Gennady Golovkin going up against Canelo Alvarez for the WBA,IBO,IBF,The Ring and vacant lineal middleweight titles.
