Oscar De La Hoya is hopeful to start making cross-promotional fights with Al Haymon.
De La Hoya runs Golden Boy Boxing while Haymon runs Premier Boxing Championship (PBC). Although both are two of the biggest promoters in the sport, the two have had a rocky relationship as back in 2015, De La Hoya sued Haymon.
Yet, the two sides put their differences behind them as they made the April 22 matchup between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis. It’s a massive fight and the first real big fight between PBC and Golden Boy boxers and now De La Hoya says he is hopeful to make more cross-promotional fights.
“I would love to [work with PBC moving forward to make the other big fights happen]. I would love it,” De La Hoya told BoxingScene.com in an interview. “I would love to speak to Al Haymon. I would love to make fights happen. This can open the door to making Jaime Munguia versus Jermall Charlo. This can open the doors to making Errol Spence Jr. versus Vergil Ortiz Jr. It can be huge. This is the door. This is the open door to make big fights happen.”
According to Oscar De La Hoya, he says making the Garcia-Davis fight helped set a foundation for what working with PBC in the future looks like. He says it is good for the sport of boxing and is optimistic the two promoters can continue to work together and make big fights.
