Boxing promoter Oscar De La Hoya has ignited a public feud with rival Floyd Mayweather, criticizing his recent interactions with rising star Ryan Garcia. The tension stemmed from photos circulated online showing Mayweather and Garcia jogging together and visiting a shopping mall, prompting De La Hoya to voice his displeasure on Instagram.

De La Hoya highlighted the established partnership between Golden Boy Promotions, his company, and Garcia, a key fighter in their stable. He detailed the recent developments, mentioning Garcia's initial interest in a fight against Devin Haney, which seemingly shifted post-meeting with Mayweather to a preference for Rolando Romero.

Golden Boy vs. TMT:

De La Hoya emphasized Golden Boy's crucial role in Garcia's professional development since his debut, propelling him to become a major boxing attraction. "Pre-run with Floyd = Ryan wants Haney. Post-run with Floyd = Ryan wants Rolly," De La Hoya wrote, implying Mayweather's influence on Garcia's decision-making.

He further asserted Golden Boy's commitment to Garcia's success, declaring, "We will make his fight with Rolly into a huge event, as we always do." While acknowledging Mayweather's potential boxing expertise, De La Hoya delivered a strong message: "Floyd, if you want to give Ryan the secret to defense in the ring, that's great. Other than that, if you are still a promoter like it says here, f*** off."

Garcia's Next Move:

Currently, Garcia remains without a confirmed opponent, although he has publicly expressed interest in facing Rolando Romero. His recent convincing knockout victory over Oscar Duarte on December 2 provided a much-needed boost after previous setbacks, including a defeat to Gervonta Davis.
