ODLH Getting Attention For All The Wrong Reasons.
Well fight fans. I think it's fair to say that last night's boxing event on Triller certainly caught many's attention. But in the case of Oscar De La Hoya, that attention is for the wrong reason! De La Hoya recently announced, like many boxing stars of yesteryear have done recently, that he will make a comeback at the age of 48. But last nights display, has many calling for him to abandon pursuit.
De La Hoya was brought into the commentary booth for the fight between former Tyson Fury opponent, Steve Cunningham, and former UFC heavyweight great, Frank Mir.

Social media blew up with the obvious state that De La Hoya was in. Former UFC World Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Cormier was quick to add his opinion.
@arielhelwani he’s not buzzing, Oscar De La Hoya is plastered! This is the craziest event I’ve ever seen in my life. And I can’t turn it off.— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) April 18, 2021
During the fight, De La Hoya shouted encouragement for Mir: “There is a reason Cunningham has nine losses. He has no chin.”
“They’re fighting in a phone booth, baby.”
“Deflate the balloon, let’s go baby.”
“The next day I always asked myself, ‘Did I give it my all? Did I give it my all? Let’s go baby, let’s go Cunningham, let’s go Mir.”
Safe to say that Oscar will likely be waking up with a sore head ... whenever that might be.
