Drunk De La Hoya Mouths Off On Who Could Take Connor McGregor

We all have that one friend that gets a little too drunk and tries to start a fight. Last night Oscar De La Hoya was that guy.

As TMZ reporters interviewed the obviously tipsy boxing legend outside of a nightclub in Hollywood, De La Hoya didn’t mince words on who he thought would win in a fight between Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez. The former champ and founder of Golden Boy Promotions said, “I’ll tell you who’ll beat Conor McGregor’s ass. They call him Canelo Alvarez.” De La Hoya’s battle cry came just after McGregor, who has challenged Floyd Mayweather to a fight in the ring, obtained his boxing license in California. And while De La Hoya was drunk, he definitely has a point.

Even before McGregor got his boxing license, Alvarez was willing to school Mystic Mac.

“If [McGregor] wants to try out boxing,” Alvarez said in a recent interview, “then anytime he wants. If he wants to come over to this side of the world and try boxing, anytime he wants, to see that it’s not as easy as he thinks.” McGregor responded by claiming that the only reason Alvarez has an impressive record is because he cherry picks his opponents. There’s definitely been no love lost between the two fighters, and now that McGregor is licensed to box in California, it might be time to start placing your bets. But don’t get too excited, many out see McGregor’s boxing license as nothing more than a calculated low blow to the UFC for stripping him of his featherweight title.

On Friday, boxing world champion and Olympic gold medalist Oscar de la Hoya announced that he officially coming out retirement.

The announcement that Oscar de La Hoya was coming out of retirement came at a press conference hosted by boxing and MMA enthusiast, Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg teased the big announcement saying, “I smell something golden. You smell it?” before Oscar de la Hoya arrived on stage to reveal his big news.

“July 3, I’m making my comeback,” he said before dramatically dropping the mic and exiting the stage. Based on their reaction, the audience seemed excited about the news.

Oscar de la Hoya has been teasing his return to boxing for a while now.

Rumors of de la Hoya boxing again had been circulating for months. In August of last year, the Golden Boy revealed to ESPN that he did, indeed, have plans to come out of retirement.

“The rumors are true, and I’m going to start sparring in the next few weeks,” he said. “It’s a real fight. I miss being in the ring, I love boxing. Boxing is what gave me everything I have today, and I just miss it.”

Oscar de la Hoya’s last boxing match was in 2008 against Filipino world champion Manny Pacquiao.

The 2008 fight was a major loss for de la Hoya and he stopped the fight after the eighth round. After that loss, de la Hoya famously said: “I don’t have it anymore.”

At the peak of his career, Oscar de la Hoya was the top-rated fighter in the world. Since he retired from boxing, he has spent most of his energy building Golden Boy Promotions, a boxing and mixed martial arts promotion firm. He is the first Hispanic-American to own a national boxing promotional firm.

The former world champion also founded the Oscar de la Hoya foundation, which aims to “help improve the quality of life for the community in his hometown of East Los Angeles.”

De la Hoya isn’t worried about his performance, because he believes he has passion on his side. “These [young] guys are in it just for the money — that’ll be the big difference,” he told ESPN. “I will fight for the glory, and these guys only fight for the money. And guess what? The glory will always win.”

As of now, there is no word on who the Golden Boy will be fighting, although he previously said that he will fight “any top guy out there”. We’ll see how it goes!

Eva Longoria And George Lopez Brought Their Best Friends To Family Feud And It Got Raunchy

“Family Feud” had a ton of Latino Celebrities on over the weekend in an epic showdown to raise money for charity. On one team was Eva Longoria, with “family members” Justina Machado, Amaury Nolasco, Ana Ortiz and Wilmer Valderrama. They were up against leader George Lopez, his daughter Mayan Lopez, actors Constance Marie and Ray Diaz, as well as the golden boy himself, Oscar De La Hoya.

“Family Feud” had a celebrity episode with all Latino contestants led by Eva Longoria and George Lopez.

It quickly became an interesting game with Spanish translations being thrown in the mix. When asked to pick a top answer for “something you roll,” Justina Machado said “tortillas.” The crowd erupted into laughter as she said, “These are Latinos up here, come on!” There was a ding and the board flipped, and the answer revealed was “dough.” Which led Lopez to protest, “Wait a minute. It’s called masa!” Host Steve Harvey laughed when Lopez explained: “masa is not where the Mexican astronauts train.”

You’d think after becoming a boxing champion and Olympic gold medalist, nothing could stress De La Hoya out…

But he stutters so hard here you’d swear he’d just been knocked out.

Like your two drunk tios at a quinceañera, De La Hoya and Nolasco came out ready to rumble.

My money is always on De Le Hoya.

Diaz, at one point, ripped his shirt off.

De La Hoya definitely looked at him like, “Okay, but can he take a punch?”

Harvey couldn’t believe Diaz’s answer, instead of asking the judges to focus on his abs.

The actor had opened his shirt at one point in the episode but gave such a ridiculous answer, Harvey thought it served his best interest to just keep it open to detract from the clueless response he’d just given.

Lopez knew what he was doing when he led Harvey down this line of thinking…

You know in Harvey’s head he was like, “Man, this is a family show, don’t you say marijuana…”

Harvey asked a question about male strippers and got an equally appropriate answer.

Longoria shouted “What kind of game are we playing!?” as her team burst into laughter.

Longoria and company had team spirit all the way.

I was just happy to see Latinos on TV, but couldn’t help but start rooting for these three ladies.

Longoria’s team made it to the final round and both she and Nolasco tried their best avoid a particular question.

It seems people’s “members” are an ongoing theme of the show.

Watch until the end, it’s worth it just to see Longoria’s victory lap.
