Oscar De La Hoya is not going easy on Eddie Hearn. The boxing world is witnessing a clash between two boxing promoters. The Golden Boy and Matchroom promoter have been exchanging jabs with each other on social media for a while now. What started as a harmless tease has now turned into a verbal showdown between both sides. And the American promoter is not willing to back down from this verbal interaction, either. From calling Hearn “lonely” to calling him out for his “sh***y card,” La Hoya knows how to spark rivalries. And the 50-year-old has done it again by taking another dig at the Brit.

Fans can consider this message being cryptic as it is unclear what the Golden Boy is referring to while calling out the Matchroom promoter.

Furthermore, La Hoya gave a reality check to Hearn about thinking about taking his fighters. “You think you can just come here and poach our fighters? Who have you built? Your a joke.” The 50-year-old promoter made things personal with Hearn as he inexplicitly claimed that there is no notable fighter the Brit has built during his career as a promoter. And, if this was not enough, La Hoya made a career suggestion for Hearn.
