Oscar De La Hoya Makes Surprising Spence-Crawford Prediction


Oscar De La Hoya has named his man in the two-horse race ahead of one of the most hotly-anticipated fights in the sport.

The Golden Boy head honcho was ringside on Saturday night to watch his star man Vergil Ortiz Jr. extend his unbeaten run.

Ortiz Jr. moved to 19-0, all by stoppage, finishing the brave challenge of England’s Michael McKinson, who slipped to 22-1 with two quick, in the ninth round of a scheduled 12 at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

And De La Hoya was there to see it.

But the 48-year-old, who won 11 world titles in six weight classes, including the lineal championship in three divisions, has had his say on the proposed welterweight showdown between world champions Errol Spence Jr. and Terence Crawford.

Spence, the WBC and IBF champion at the weight, added the WBA Super belt to his collection earlier this year with a stoppage win over Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas and in the aftermath promised fans the undisputed showdown with ‘Bud’.

Though it has yet to be confirmed, it is widely understood that the two world champions will meet in an undisputed welterweight showdown later this year.
