Oscar De La Hoya June 2015

Oscar De La Hoya has been talking about making a comeback to boxing for a while now, and he plans to fight the likes of Floyd Mayweather or Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.

While it could be seen as a publicity stunt, De La Hoya tells ESPN that he is serious about all of this.

“It’s got to be worth my while but this is very serious,” De La Hoya told ESPN.com on Monday. “I have to make sure I am fighting the very best. I don’t have to come back for financial reasons or the lights or the glamour. The only reason I would come back is because I miss the competition of fighting the very best.”

He said that if he does return, his goal would be to face either pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather, who beat him by split decision in 2007 in what was the biggest money fight in boxing history at the time, in a rematch or to face middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin in a fight De La Hoya said would have to take place at junior middleweight.

“I want to fight one of them because they are the best and I always fought the best,” De La Hoya said. “That’s what boxing is all about – fighting the best.”

I could definitely see the Golden Boy returning. But being out of fighting for so long, would he even stand a chance with Floyd or GGG?

Probably not.
