De La Hoya To Mayweather: Let's Bury The Hatchet!

By Radio Rahim

Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas - Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is ready to call a truce with recently retired pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The two former multi-division champions, who are now promoters, have been trading verbal jabs for the last two weeks.

They faced each other in the ring in 2007 and broke numerous records. De La Hoya's company then co-promoted ten of Mayweather's fights.

But there was always friction between the two of them. Mayweather broke away from doing business with Golden Boy last year.

Last week, De La Hoya created a firestorm after blasting Mayweather in an open letter which appeared in the December edition of Playboy Magazine. Mayweather fired back, several times, calling De La Hoya a "jealous" individual.

"You know what, I'm gonna give it to you. I'm gonna give you an exclusive right now. Floyd, let's bury the hatchet. I'm shaking, I'm getting a little teary eyed. Floyd, let's bury the hatchet. We don't have to be friends. We don't have to be best of friends, but lets bury the hatchet for the sake of the sport," De La Hoya told

"Keep doing what you're doing, I applaud you. I'm doing what I'm doing. Let's come together. Maybe down the road we can work together. Imagine that. Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions. We'll bring in the Bobfather. Maybe we'll bring Don King out of retirement. Maybe we'll do a Super Bowl of boxing. Floyd, let's bury the hatchet, sincerely."

[QUOTE=THEFRESHBRAWLER;16243304]I agree with some of your post although I wish you all would stop with the mythical golden boy bs. He's a two time rapist for god sake. Trying to portray that goldenboy image brings chronic stress which probably is…

lol I don't think there is a hatchet, not from Mayweather's side of things anyway. De La Hoya still mad he took that L to Floyd nearly a decade ago and that Floyd also surpassed him as far as being…

You guys keep making fun of Oscar for wearing fishnets, but most of you listen to rap, and rappers are the gayest people on earth.
