Oscar De La Hoya Takes Shot At Eddie Hearn Over Possibility Of Golden Boy-Matchroom Boxing Card

Oscar De La Hoya

Oscar De La Hoya doesn’t think Eddie Hearn has enough talent to make a potential Golden Boy vs. Matchroom Boxing card.

Hearn has publicly spoken about his desire to make the Golden Boy vs. Matchroom Boxing card which would be highly anticipated. The hope is the main event will pit Ryan Garcia against Devin Haney.

However, according to Oscar De La Hoya, he doesn’t think the event will happen as he doesn’t think Matchroom has the depth to make the card worthwhile.

“I don’t think that happens,” De La Hoya said (via BoxingScene). “Last time I heard, Haney was a free agent. So, I’m not sure what [Hearn is] talking about. And an all-Golden Boy-Matchroom showdown, I’m not sure what fighters I can put my fighters against his. I just don’t know. I don’t know if he has the talent in his stable.”

Although Oscar De La Hoya doesn’t think Eddie Hearn has the level of fighters to make it worth it, the Brit thinks he does and is hopeful to make it happen.

“They have a lotta tremendous fighters,” Hearn said. “So do we. You know, I mean, if you look at it you could do a mega-card. I mean, firstly, Ryan Garcia against Devin Haney, who hopefully we can make this week. Jaime Munguia against Edgar Berlanga, another incredible fight. I mean, Vergil Ortiz against one of our 154 guys, maybe Israil Madrimov, maybe Conor Benn coming up [in weight], or Conor Benn against Alexis Rocha [at welterweight].

“You know, you got [Golden Boy’s] Darius Fulghum down there [seated at the press conference]. You know, we got plenty of middleweights for him as well. So, there’s literally a dozen fights that you could make. But, you know, it’s always disappointing losing to Oscar, so tonight we go with our tail between our legs,” Hearn added.

Do you think we ever see a Golden Boy vs. Matchroom Boxing card?
