Canelo Alvarez

Oscar De La Hoya has taken issue with middleweight kingpin and former Golden Boy Promotion’s client, Canelo Alvarez’s unanimous decision win over Kazakhstan native, Gennady Golovkin in the pair’s trilogy matchup over the weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada – describing the capping matchup as a “f*cking dud”.

De La Hoya, a former multiple-time world champion himself, ripped former promotional star, Alvarez for his second career win over the veteran, Golovkin, as well as claiming the latter was “old”.

Thrice sharing the squared circle, Canelo first met with Golovkin back in September 2017, with the duo battling over the course of 12 rounds to a controversial split decision draw.

The following year in the same month, Canelo managed to defeat Golovkin – handing the Kazakh his first career loss in another dubious and controversial majority decision effort.

Sharing his thoughts on the blockbuster pairing, De La Hoya lambasted the fight between Canelo and Golovkin, as well as claiming former world champion, Bernard Hopkins was a much better fighter than the former, in a now-deleted tweet.

“The truth is everyone is afraid of speaking the truth, the fight (between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin) was a f*cking dud,” Oscar De La Hoya tweeted. “GGG was old ass (sic) f*ck and Canelo (Alvarez) can’t hold (Bernard) Hopkins’ jockstrap.”
