De La Hoya Denies Mayweather's Talk of a Comeback

By Miguel Rivera

Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya has denied the recent rumors that were being whispered regarding a possible return to the ring. His former trainer, Floyd Mayweather Sr., was quoted in several published interviews telling reporters that he was informed that De La Hoya was considering a possible ring return. Mayweather Sr.  voiced his interest in training De La Hoya for the comeback, but the fighter turned promoter has no interest in returning.

"No [it's not true], no return, but I'm in good shape," De La Hoya said.

Since De La Hoya retired in 2009, rumors have continued to circulate regarding a possible comeback but Oscar always shoots them down. He last appeared in the ring on December 6, 2008, when Manny Pacquiao stopped him in eight rounds.

[QUOTE=TheGoldenChamp;11046143]Agreed. You have people who hate on him for what? He dodged no one and fought the best. Was robbed against Trinidad and Mosley rematch. The guy has to be one of the best latin boxers ever. He even had…
