Oscar De La Hoya Rips Bradley, Alexander, Chavez Jr.

By Chris LaBate

Oscar De La Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions, was not a happy camper with last Saturday's televised boxing events. He vented over the two main televised cards, which featured Timothy Bradley winning a technical ten round decision over Devon Alexander at the Pontiac Silverdome to unify the WBO/WBC 140-pound titles, and middleweight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. winning a ten round decision over Billy Lyell in Culiacan, Mexico.  

De La Hoya was not impressed with Bradley or Alexander. He said he was very confident of matching two of his 140-pounders, Marcos Maidana and Lucas Matthysse, against either of them.

"I am so disappointed these fighters have to strap their jock and f*^%^n fight. I would put Maidana or Matthysse with either fighter," De La Hoya wrote on his Twitter account.

Regarding Chavez Jr., the Golden President said the young Mexican "doesn't have it." De La Hoya promotes Chavez's Mexican rival, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, which makes Oscar's comments a bit biased. During the course of his career, De La Hoya picked up two TKO victories over Chavez's father, the legendary Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.

"I was watching Chavez Jr. Last night and I'm sorry but he just doesn't have it, there's no pop in his punches but wish him the best," De La Hoya said.
