Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who handles WBC, WBA, IBF middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, would love to make a fight with IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence.
De La Hoya caught wind of a recent interview, which BoxingScene.com detailed on Tuesday morning, where Spence indicated that he was open to the idea of a fight with Canelo.
Canelo was in action last Saturday night in Las Vegas, when he won twelve round decision over Daniel Jacobs.
De La Hoya, who at one time promoted Spence, believes the United States Olympian should move up in weight to challenge Canelo for his unified crown.
Back in March, Mikey Garcia jumped up by two divisions - from lightweight to welterweight - to challenge Spence.
Spence dominated Garcia over twelve rounds for a lopsided decision win.
Next up, Spence is targeting a unification showdown with WBC welterweight champion Shawn Porter in August.
But De La Hoya would like to see Spence go in another direction. He would like to see him take the same risk as Garcia, by moving up by two full weight classes for a Canelo fight.
And De La Hoya guarantees that Spence will make far more money for Canelo than he would for Porter or anyone else.
“I am letting you know that we love the fight as well and I’ve always said that Errol Spence is one of the most talented fighters out there," said De La Hoya to ESPN.
"There’s no reason why Spence can’t move up to middleweight if Mikey Garcia could go up to welterweight to fight Spence. And if Spence fights Canelo, it will be the most money Errol Spence will ever make. I would love to start the ball rolling. Let’s do it. We just want to get Canelo the best fights and the toughest challenges out there.”
