De La Hoya 'Very Serious' About Potential Run For President

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya says he’s seriously considering a run for president in 2020.

De La Hoya wants to follow in the footsteps of his one-time friend, current United States President Donald Trump.

“I am actually very, very serious and I strongly feel that if a Kanye West can do it and announce and maybe tease the world that he would maybe one day wanna run for president, why not me?” De La Hoya told TMZ Sports.

The interviewers at TMZ, unsure if De La Hoya was being serious, further pressed him on the possibility of pursuing a campaign for the White House.

“I actually am [serious]. I actually do want to pursue it, and there’s obviously many reasons,” De La Hoya responded.

“I’m actually in the works of putting a team together to explore in further details to see if this makes sense. If the numbers are right and it looks good, I’m gonna go for it.”

This coming Saturday night, De LaHoya's company will stage the biggest United States boxing event of the year, when Gennady Golovkin and Saul Canelo Alvarez collide for a second time at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Also on the card, former pound-for-pound king and former four-division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez of Managua, Nicaragua will make his highly anticipated return against experienced former world champion Moises "Moi" Fuentes of Mexico in a 10-round super flyweight battle. Former IBF middleweight world champion David Lemieux of Montreal, Canada and the always dangerous Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan of Cork, Ireland will go head-to-head in a 12-round middleweight battle, and rising Mexican star Jaime Munguia will make the second defense of his WBO junior middleweight world title against rugged Canadian contender Brandon "Bad Boy" Cook in a twelve round scrap.

What will he wear for meetings? Fishnets and cutlery instead of pens?
