Little Gian Boxing shared a video of Charlo, wherein he’s taking wild verbal shots at ‘Golden Boy’.

In this video, he said, “We’re not worried about Oscar. We never was worried about Oscar. Oscar had a chance to saw me, he still didn’t saw me. Matter of fact, we like f*** you, Oscar. Give us a release, we saw, we wrote our own release, got my brother released from Oscar. We got Al Haymon. Hey Oscar, if you want to do some business, call Al Haymon, you b**.”

“Oscar De La Hoya, you stupid a** b**. Let’s make a celebrity match. Let’s fight each other. How about that? I’ll fight Oscar De La Hoya for my WBC (belt)”

‘Hit Man’ shares an extensive beef with ‘Golden Boy’ and his above comments are proof of the same. He is one of the most eye-catchy talents in the 160-pound roster. And until now, he’s tested himself against some exuberant opponents, thus ending up on the winning vertical every time.

Charlo has retained his undefeated stint alongside his WBC strap to remain at the summit of the division. He’ll have a string of opponents to lock horns with. Yet, over anyone else, the champ wants to enter a mammoth showdown against Oscar De La Hoya.

The fuming Jermall Charlo challenged ‘Golden Boy’ for a fight. But realistically this fight might never materialize.

This is because De La Hoya hung up his gloves from the sport long back. And facing someone as active and stout as Jermall Charlo might put him in a vulnerable position.

But if the duo takes each other in a light exhibition clash, then the fans might get to see this contest soon. Would you be interested in watching De La Hoya vs Charlo? What do you make of ‘Hit Man’s above-mentioned comments?
