  • Comments Thread For: De La Hoya: Canelo Made More Money With Us

    Oscar De La Hoya may be well on his way to putting the Canelo Alvarez fiasco behind him, but one thing he says he still can't wrap his head around is that his former ace client supposedly left him for less money.

    "The only thing that kind of like disturbs me a bit is that we had everything teed up for him. He was making more money with us than what he is now, with a different promoter. It just doesn’t make sense."

    He must have really disiked you, Oscar.

      The extra money required him to fight people he didn’t want to fight.

        You can't compare the money he's making in the pandemic, vs the money he was making before the pandemic.

          I have to side with Canelo here. DLH and Arum are the old way of doing business where a fighter no matter how popular was controlled by and dictated to by promoters. Both Haymon and young Edward have moved to contract free promotion models for the big fighters. I think we will see this more and more with Hearn when it comes to his more top shelf talent

            Canelo made more money with golden boy and also faced better competition. This run of Smith, Yidilgrim , Saunders and soon Plant has been underwhelming and doesn’t move the needle much. With Golden Boy, while he did face guys who were older and past their best days after the Lara fight, at least there was some value to them such as Cotto, Ggg and Kovalev. Right now he’s just facing mediocre title holders who have been less than impressive leading into their fights with him.

              You got to be a grade-A dirtbag for someone to leave you for less money. Canelo is fighting who he wants now and on his own terms and that's more valuable than what GBP could offer him

                sure you can. Ticket sales to a fight only impacted two of his three fights and most of the money that’s made to pay him is through streaming on dazn. Streaming services have increased across the board during the pandemic. The main issue is that while Canelo’s ticket sales are strong usually, he hasn’t generated strong streaming numbers pre nor post pandemic.

                  Mayweather made more money on his own, than what he did with Top Rank! That's the blueprint Canelo is following, not Oscar's! Oscar needs to focus on Ryan Garcia and Vergil Ortiz Jr., before history repeats itself! Vergil wants Crawford, make it happen! KingRy wants Tank, make it happen!

                    Wonder how De la Hoya would react if Canelo and Mayweather end up doing business together...
