Oscar De La Hoya, Eddie Hearn Trade Words Over Canelo Alvarez

Promoter Oscar De La Hoya and Eddie Hearn had some words over social media, regarding Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Both De La Hoya and Hearn have exclusive content deals with streaming service DAZN.

Hearn, who promotes WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade and WBA super middleweight champion Callum Smith, has been pressuring Canelo to fight one of his boxers, specifically Andrade who dominated Maciej Sulekci over twelve rounds on Saturday night.

De La Hoya, through his company Golden Boy Promotions, promotes Canelo.

Some of Hearn's statements regarding Canelo's future, and Golden Boy's ability to get deal done for a trilogy with Gennady Golovkin, appears to have annoyed De La Hoya - who basically told Hearn to mind his own business.

"Eddie Hearn, let me worry about Canelo and his next opponent, which doesn’t involve you. You worry about securing the rematch for [Anthony] Joshua with [Andy] Ruiz for DAZN - which I hear you are having problems with," De La Hoya stated.

Hearn hit back, promising that he will finalize the Joshua-Ruiz rematch before De La Hoya can get a deal done for a trilogy between Canelo and Golovkin. 

"Friendly bet..my fight gets made before yours," Hearn stated.

Hearn and De La Hoya have done some business in recent months. In his two most recent fights, Canelo defeated two Hearn promoted boxers, Daniel Jacobs and Rocky Fielding.

[QUOTE=kafkod;19869841]Nope, the WBC belt that was stolen from GGG and given to Canelo is now held by Jermall Charlo. [B][I]Canelo's WBC "franchise title" was created for him alone and cannot be contested by anybody else.[/I][/B] There has never been anything…
