Oscar De La Hoya Needs To Stop Talking Pacquiao-Mayweather and Make It Happen

The other day, Doghouse Boxing had an article regarding Oscar De La Hoya and his Tweet regarding who would win a fight between Manny Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

According the headline the prediction was shocking.

Like a stooge, I bit, and quickly found myself glancing at one of the most pointless article I've read in quite a while. Naturally, Money May's promoter picked Floyd. What a surprise.

I suppose Bob Arum predicting Manny win a fight between the PBF and the Pacman would be big news as well. Or maybe news that it gets cold in Chicago during the winter.

I did find Oscar's Tweet a little shocking, however. Shocking that the Golden Boy was tweeting when he should have been dialing Leonard Ellerbe and asking him when Mayweather was going to fight again and why he's spitting in the face of the sport of boxing and all its fans.

That's because there isn't anything anyone wants Oscar and the rest of the clowns at Golden Boy to be doing other than getting Mayweather back into the ring. Preferably against Pacquiao.

Look, I know Floyd has legal trouble right now. I also know he's 33 and if he does have to go to jail for any length of time it will be in the prime of his career.

So, here's what I propose for Oscar. 

Lay off the tweeting until there is some real news. 

Where can I comment?
