There’S some rumbling about de la hoya he’s been training for the last.
I think it’s three or four months, graham and apparently he wants to get into this mike tyson.
What was it mike tyson and uh roy jones jr? Was it thing yeah yeah? So i think he’s he’s planning on jumping on board in in some capacity because he actually is training he’s.
Actually, as we speak, he could probably be in the gym right now, because he’s got something’s up something.
You know he really doesn’t get beaten up or anything.
Obviously, oscar you don’t need the money, so uh you’re doing it for whatever reason and you’ve always you’ve always fought from the heart.
So that’s what we like about you uh.
Obviously there was some on uh on unattended business and you feel that you’d like to come back and uh give us all another fantastic show cause any time.
Neil the deal saw an oscar de la hoya fight, which i didn’t miss very many of those graham.
He was amazing, so let’s just talk a little bit about who he is.
Where he’s from again, you know and uh what he’s up to so uh.
He was born february, 4th 1973 in montebello, california, united states of america.
He competed from 1992 to 2008 and retired in 2009.
Within that stretch he won 11 world titles.
Graham 11 count them 10 11.
Who does that uh in in six different divisions? So that’s crazy in itself that thought so he’s a real superstar like a real superstar, so guys talking fight fans.
Neil the deal show fans all my fans go check out.
Some of the uh, the oscar de la hoya, fights of the past, and i guarantee you’ll be absolutely blown away.
He had skill beyond skill.
He had heart beyond heart, he was down in fights.
Came back to win him he’s he’s.
I don’t know you don’t get much better than him man, really you don’t uh! So they’ve ranked him number 15th, all time, graham 15th greatest fighter by box, rack uh one.
He won the gold medal.
Did you know that, graham for the united states, uh of america and the 1992 summer olympics as a as a lightweight, so he has a gold medal as well as all the uh? You know everything else that he’s done in his career, so he fought in in the in the in those divisions, the sixth division, so we’ll go through them.
It’S a super featherweight lightweight light, welterweight, welterweight, light, middleweight and middleweight all right.
So that’s pretty impressive to be able to go he’s another fighter that goes through multiple weight, uh divisions and does well at all of them, so uh alto, oscar you’re, awesome man that was awesome.
Uh, unbelievable guys, like i say, likes, shares comments all about oscar.
Let everybody know about us if you don’t know about oscar check it out, guys you’re gon na love, him uh, he’s five foot.
Ten and a half he’s got a 73 inch reach and his parents emigrated from mexico.
His grandfather was an amateur boxer in the 40s, so his name was vincenzo.
Vincenzo de la hoya and uh his father, joel senior, was a boxing pro during the six went from grandfather to father to son, so uh.
I guess i guess they were both.
Maybe coaching him or training him when he was a very young child and that’s why he became the most one of the most amazing boxers in the history of boxing so good for him.
I’M i’m very happy for him uh.
He also has a brother named joel jr, that also boxes, so it is in the family, his brother, his brother boxes as well and uh ring magazine.
He was ring magazine fighter of the year in 1995 and he was a top ranked uh ring magazine top ranked in the world from 97 to 98, so he was in those years.
He was pretty much unstoppable if you remember that, graham before just early before the 2000s 95 to 2000, he was unstoppable de la hoya.
He unbelievable, i think he was.
He was probably in his primary then right like real prime uh.
He had a crazy amateur career.
Graham um and this guy’s this will let you know what kind of a guy mr de la hoya is he had uh.
I i thought this number was like probably wrong, but then i started looking around and i go actually it’s right.
He had 234 wins as an amateur.
Do you want 234 wins? What’S going on here, boys 234 wins 163 knockouts as an amateur like 234 wins and 163 knockouts, and he won six golden glove gold medals.
I believe you know along his amateur career and he only had six losses out of 234 fights, so that is pretty much unheard of.
He uh he debuted on november 23rd 1992 and he uh.
He won his first fight by tko first round he was the super featherweight in his first fight.
He won the first title: fight uh in 2010 or uh.
No, i’m sorry, one first title fight uh the wbo super featherweight was the title.
That was his first title.
Win so in his pro, this is pro career.
Uh 39 wins six losses all right.
Anyone uh his first 31 pro fights uh, it’s straight so he’s 31-0 before he lost one uh.
He had 19 knockouts in his first 31 fights and then he went on to uh to win um eight more and get uh, eight more knockouts, almost eight or nine knockouts.
So he’s he’s.
Basically you know 39 and uh six.
You know what i mean, which is absolutely amazing: amazing stats uh.
He he fought all the big names.
That’S the whole thing about him.
He never ducked anybody.
He literally called people out.
He was the guy that nobody wanted to fight, because if you were the champion, he’d say: oh fight the champ, oh i’ll, take on the attack.
He doesn’t want to fight like a second ranked guy third ranked guy.
Don’T want to deal with that grab.
Just give me the champ i’ll, take the belt and that’s what he did basically just rolled over people uh.
He basically had notable fights he had like i.
I could be here for 39 fights and tell you them all, but we’ll probably give you about five or six real good ones.
So he fought uh jc chavez.
He won the wbc light welterweight title: he fought pernell whitaker.
He won the wbc welterweight title.
George piues, he won the vacant, wbo lighthead late, welterweight title.
He fought jimmy uh badal and won the wbo junior lightweight title.
He fought jimmy.
He fought jeff, mayweather and and uh knocked him censors.
That was one of his first fights uh.
Then he fought hector camacho, which we talked about hector macho camacho.
He fought camacho and uh.
He basically won that one.
He won the wbc welterweight title as well off camacho.
He beat patrick carpentier uh.
He beat felix trinidad we’re going to talk about him one day.
Graham felix trinidad, uh and uh he lost that was one of his losses was to felix trinidad, so that was in a title fight, but he lost.
So that was pretty much the only one i see here.
Well, i know there’s another one: felix sturm felix term: he won the wbo middleweight title and then floyd mayweather jr.
He lost the wbc light middleweight title to pretty boy.
Floyd you out there pretty boy, floyd you’re, not pretty bad.
Well, you might be after fighting that youtube guy, like you’re, really you’re 50.
You know and you’re fighting kids that are youtube sensations.
Is that your new business, terrible anyways, terrible um, his last fight was uh manny pacquiao funny enough abraham manny pacquiao and it was a loss.
Uh pacquiao beat him, so we retired after that fight 2009 right, packed it in after the pacquiao fight.
Isn’T that kind of ironic guys pacquiao them packed them up? That was it done like dinner.
Stick a fork in him, he’s done out of there.
So now he just uh.
Basically he runs golden boy productions.
We all know that that one up, which is a huge boxing promotion company um, he promotes boxers and mma matches.
I understand he’s now involved in mma, graham uh, promoting not fighting but promoting and uh.
He owns a 25 stake in a professional soccer team gram like tfc, so he owns uh 25 stake in the houston dynamo interesting.
I was like.
Oh so now he’s you know, he’s he’s broadening his portfolio, he needs businesses and sporting companies and, and now he wants to come back and fight mike tyson.
Well, that’s, he must have a death wish, but whatever who wants to wake up in the morning and go yeah, i got ta fight tyson today, yeah, you know it’s it’s a regular monday afternoon and it’s all good and i’m just trying to be afraid.
It don’t happen, have you seen tyson oscar? Have you seen what he looks like holy moses? He could probably ram tyson could probably win the title right now, i’m being honest with you, he could probably win the title he’s in that good shape and and the greatest part about him right now is he’s mentally stable, like he’s actually on a 360 and the Guy is like he.
Basically if there was water on the ground and there was an old lady getting out of his out of her car, he would probably roll out a carpet for he’s that nice.
So thanks a lot mike we’re just talking a little bit about you, love you mike, so oscar you might want to reconsider this uh comeback thing.
That’S that’s just advice from the other deal.
Let you know advice is free oscar.
I don’t charge for it.
You’Re lucky um, so i’m just telling you dude, you might be making a mistake with this like keep with the promoting keep with the you know, the soccer teams and the go buy a hockey team or something have fun learn to skate.
I don’t know: don’t fight tyson he’ll mess you up, you won’t be so pretty after that.
You know, but anyways, graham so tyson, one of the uh.
Sorry guys, sorry guys de la hoya, one of the best ever check him out he’s got like 39 fantastic fights.
Any one of them is amazing: most of them are title fights.
You know he probably won 11 world titles.
So if you watched all 11 world title fights of the oscar de la hoya, you probably guys guys.
That is something you can do over the lockdown.
Just watch oscar de la hoya fights, you know just put them on and let them run so anyways.
I hope you guys are all safe out there thanks thanks again, so much for all the all the uh likes and the shares and and the comments have been really really cool and yes, i did shave the other day got a bunch of comments about that.
I know i look like a little kid and uh yeah.
I know i know real men have facial hair.
I’Ve been told that but women don’t like it.
So how does that work? Real men have facial hair, but women don’t like facial hair.
What kind of an oxymoron is that anyways i’ll probably grow it back? It’S too cold and it’s freezing my face so i’ll just keep growing it and then i’ll shave it off in the summer when it gets too hot.
