Oscar De La Hoya and Triller- The new wave of Boxing

Athletic reporter Mike Coppinger revealed the news via social media, sending several fans into a frenzy. The journalist wrote, “He (Ryan Garcia) is exploring a deal with Triller that would see the entire Golden Boy stable, led by Ryan Garcia, leave DAZN. Deal with DAZN expires end of year. All the details.”

De La Hoya and DAZN have staged several lucrative events together, inclusive of Canelo Alvarez’s fights. Meanwhile, Alvarez is no longer under De La Hoya’s stable. Thus, it seems to have put a dent in the stellar roster that used to house the P4P king.

However, Triller entered the business with a bang. They have hosted a few iconic fights and with Golden Boy Promotions on board, and it can only better. Triller has mostly involved itself in exhibition fights, like Mike Tyson’s return, and Jake Paul vs Ben Askren.
