Former six division world champion Oscar De La Hoya, 48-years-old, is still considering the possibility of returning to the ring.

He's been out action since late 2008, when he suffered a one-sided stoppage loss at the hands of Manny Pacquiao, who himself recently retired from the sport.

He was scheduled to come out of retirement earlier this year, against former UFC champion Vitor Belfort in the main event of a Triller pay-per-view that was set for September.

In the weeks leading up to the fight, De La Hoya withdrew after contracting COVID-19.

He was replaced by former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, who Belfort blew out in one round.

At the moment De La Hoya is laying back, but he intends to resume training in the coming year.

"Personally, right now I'm not motivated because of COVID. I was actually in great shape and then COVID hit me, so my morale right now is a little low in terms of me fighting in the ring personally," De La Hoya told TMZ.

"But come January, I'm sure I will get right back into it and start training again and prepare myself mentally first. But I do want to get out there again, possibly Cinco De Mayo."

De La Hoya is not sure who his comeback opponent would be - but he would love to have another scrap with former five division champion Floyd Mayweather. 

Back in 2007, Mayweather won a close twelve round decision over De La Hoya in what is still one of the highest grossing fights on pay-per-view.

"Who knows, it could be Floyd Mayweather," De La Hoya said, later continuing ... "It's probably the biggest fight you could make today."

Mayweather himself saw action earlier this year, when he fought Youtube star Logan Paul in an eight round exhibition. Afterwards, he ruled out the possibility of fighting again in any capacity.
