On Saturday, an image was circulated that showed Oscar De La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins and Terence Crawford.
De La Hoya explained a bit of the point of the meeting on Saturday night.
“Future plans for Terence Crawford,” De La Hoya when speaking to DAZN’s Chris Mannix prior to Saturday’s main event. “He wants to fight the big fights, against Errol Spence. I told him, ‘We can make that fight happen. Ryan Garcia versus Tank Davis is going to open a lot of doors for us that will lead to us doing business with PBC.”
De La Hoya even laid out a plan of multiple fights, with one idea being a fight with Alexis Rocha, followed by Vergil Ortiz Jr., and then even Errol Spence Jr.
“I told Crawford, ‘Let us present to you a schedule of fights leading up to Spence.’ I have all the confidence in the world that Crawford versus Spence will happen,” said De La Hoya.“We did discuss a Rocha fight…I think it’s a big possibility. He’s number three in the world. Rocha versus Crawford, who knows.”
