"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said on Golden Boy Radio with Tattoo and the Crew.

De La Hoya, who won 10 titles during his career, was highly critical of McGregor's fight against Floyd Mayweather this summer, calling it a "fraud".

The UFC will be keen to, at least, be seen to take some action against the Irish fighter, though not appearing on a UFC 219 card will not go far enough for many observers of mixed martial arts. Secretly training. I'm faster than ever, and stronger than ever. "I'll come back for that fight", he said.

When rumors started firing around previous year about the possibility of McGregor boxing, De La Hoya talked about having the UFC star fight his boxer, Canelo Alvarez.

De La Hoya claimed: "I know I could take out Conor McGregor in two rounds".

"Mr Redmond was knocked - I don't want to say he was unconscious - but he was hit quite heavy. I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life".

We've seen McGregor accused of making racially insensitive remarks, we've seen him repeatedly use a homophobic slur when referring to a teammate's opponent and, most recently, we've seen him allow his emotion get the better of him in the Bellator cage. Two rounds. That's all I need. At the age of 44?

However, he seems to have changed his tune and is keen to face McGregor himself in a fantasy fight that could generate millions.

Mark Goddard attempted to stop Mayweather from celebrating inside the ring leading to ugly scenes where the Irishman pushed the referee up against the cage before being escorted out of the arena.

The director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, the governing body which oversaw Bellator 187, has explained that UFC officials informed him that McGregor would no longer be featuring on the UFC 219 card in Las Vegas due to his latest indiscretion.

Despite being retired for nearly a decade, Oscar De La Hoya believes he could destroy Conor McGregor. In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less?
