UFC President Dana White Responds to Oscar De La Hoya Boxing Comeback: “Cocaine isn’t cheap,”

August 23, 2020 by Jack Ol

The 47-year-old Hall of Famer Boxer turned promoter Oscar De La Hoya recently hinted that he could come back to fight after 12 years of retirement.

Dana White, who is a media rival of Oscar and the UFC President, was recently asked about his thoughts on Golden Boy's founder decision to come out of retirement. Dana who has been in a long time feud with the former World Champion boxer responded with a controversial statement as expected. He referenced to De La Hoya’s well-known and admitted history of substance abuse issues and said:

“Cocaine isn’t cheap. It’s expensive. Gotta make money.”

De La Hoya last fought Manny Pacquiao in December 2008 and hasn't stepped in the ring since the loss. There have been several talks about his return to the fight after being out for 12 years. However, he will have to pass the physical test to re-licensed.

De La Hoya and White have a long history of bag mouth and big talks. These two fight business owners hate each other as their bad mouth was not for any fight promotion or making money but the hatred for each other which seem to continue long in the future.
