Six months ago, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin finally stood face-to-face in a boxing ring to give fans what they’ve been waiting to see for years. The match ended in controversy after it was deemed a tie, so a rematch was on the horizon.
On May 5th, the two fighters will square off again, and Oscar De La Hoya wants somebody very special to attend the event.
TMZ recently caught up with the boxing legend, who challenged President Donald Trump to show up to the rematch to prove he doesn’t dislike Mexicans.
“I always have binoculars ready for Donald Trump because I’m not gonna sit him ringside,” Oscar tells TMZ Sports … “I’m gonna sit him way up there in the stands with all the Mexicans and all the fight fans from Kazakhstan!”
“I dare him to come! It’ll be great!”
Oscar says he knows Trump is a fight fan — but tells us he’s probably rooting for Gennady Golovkin because “I don’t think Trump is a Mexican supporter. He’s more of a European supporter.”
Oscar says Trump has a standing invitation to all of his Golden Boy Promotions events — and says if Trump actually accepts the invite to the Cinco De Mayo event, “We’ll have a beer together!”
