“But if you thought Mayweathe vs Mcgregor PPV Fight was a black eye for our sport — a matchup between two of the best pound-for-pound fighters that simply didn’t deliver — just wait until the best boxer of a generation dismantles someone who has never boxed competitively at any level — amateur or professional,” De La Hoya wrote.


De La Hoya did address his potential bias in the matter. The fighter he promotes, Canelo Alvarez, will be facing Gennady Golovkin in September in what would have been the biggest fight of the year — if Mayweather vs. McGregor doesn’t take place. He also addressed that.

“Now, I know critics will say that I’m Mayweather vs Mcgregor live boxing only writing this letter because my company is promoting what will be the culmination of an outstanding boxing year when Canelo Alvarez takes on Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin in September, and I don’t want anything to distract attention away from that fight,” he wrote. “But my interest is in the health of boxing as a whole. It always has been. And if Floyd were to come out of retirement to take on someone like Keith ‘One–time’ Thurman, Errol Spence or some other top welterweight, not only would I applaud the fight, I’d be the first one on line for a ticket.

“That kind of fight is what the fans — and I am a fan first — deserve.”

Sugar Ray Leonard is unimpressed by the looming showdown between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC champion Conor McGregor, describing it as one of the biggest mismatches in boxing history.

McGregor is set to step into the ring with retired and undefeated boxer Mayweather after agreeing to a deal for the mega-fight against the 40-year-old.

Mayweather boasted a flawless 49-0 professional record before retiring in 2015, but McGregor has been outspoken in his belief that he can win outside of the octagon. However, Leonard, who won titles in five different weight divisions, is adamant Mayweather would easily beat McGregor in the ring.

"It will be successful, financially," said Leonard. "It is intriguing. It reminds me of when Muhammad Ali fought [Japanese wrestler Antonio] Inoki [in 1976]. I saw it just the other day. Back then I loved it but ... if they decide upon boxing with McGregor, Mayweather wins hands down. But if McGregor was able to kick."

"It's two different sports trying to be one sport," he added. "Would it sell? Yes it will sell. There's a curiosity, which is a factor. But it won't be what people are anticipating. It is not a fight which will please the boxing purists. We live in a different time now with social media and what have you. The purists, the boxing fans, would they like it? No, I don't think so. But fans in general, the sports fans, they wouldn't miss it for the world."

Leonard continued: "It's close [to being one of the greatest mismatches in boxing]. The fact that we boxers deliver punches is so different to what they do. There's more looping and what have you because they also have to be in position to be able to kick and be on balance to deliver that elbow or whatever shot they have.

"It will be interesting. I'm struggling with words. I'm trying to think how best to describe what could and what would happen. Being just boxing, it's Mayweather vs mcgregor live fight

 by a long shot."
