Oscar De La Hoya challenges Dana White in hopes of securing future boxing match with Georges St-Pierre
Oscar De La Hoya has challenged UFC President Dana White in hopes of securing a future boxing match with Georges St-Pierre.
Earlier this week, Triller boss Ryan Kavanaugh accused White and his company of preventing GSP from participating in a proposed boxing match with De La Hoya.
“Dana White and the UFC just stopped Georges St-Pierre from fighting Oscar De La Hoya. It’s a big payday for GSP and Oscar’s dream of fighting. Dana prefers to retain those who put the UFC where it is and why? Snoop Dogg, Jake Paul, Mario Lopez, Teofimo Lopez, Kevin Iole. I tried calling and texting Dana at least 5 times to make it work for both parties, not even through a return call. And he’s trying to get Jake Paul to fight for the UFC now? Make him offers? Just hurt his own people and drive our own. – Kavanaugh wrote on Instagram.
Dana White would later respond to the charges by stating the following:
“Oh my God. Don’t even ask me about those idiots. Who gives a shit. Does anyone give a shit? I don’t care what they think. You think I care. What is Triller thinking? I don’t even take their calls. This idiot calls me everyday, texts me everyday. “Please answer my call, talk to me if he is. Why don’t you talk to me? Because I don’t care about you. Do your thing. Leave me alone. Go do what you do. Knock yourself out, I don’t care. I don’t have no interest in talking to any of those idiots. They can do their thing. Do you something. Stop talking about me. What the hell are you doing about what I do? Do your thing, “ White said.
Georges St-Pierre would later confirm that the UFC stepped in and prevented him from boxing De La Hoya.
“I understand that Dana didn’t want me to fight. However, it would have been fun. Because my career as a professional fighter, to become the best in the world in mixed martial arts, is over. I will be 40 years old tomorrow; I will be 40 years old. It’s a young man’s game ” Said St-Pierre.
“However, to instead fight a boxing match by the rules Triller put on the legendary Oscar De La Hoya?” For me that would have been a dream come true as he is my second favorite boxer of all time, behind Sugar Ray Leonard, ”said GSP. “In addition, much of the money earned would have gone to charity. So it would have been for a good cause, just to show that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. And that would have been a serious competition because you say, I play basketball, I play hockey, but you don’t “play” combat. It would have been fun.
While recent comments from GSP suggest he’s already gone with the idea, Oscar De La Hoya is now ready to give in so easily.
The former boxing champion took to social media on Friday where he challenged Dana White to a fight, suggesting he would kick her ass and then fight a real man in GSP.

Oscar De La Hoya (39-6) has not competed since 2008 when he suffered a loss to boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. That said, the 48-year-old appears to be in good shape ahead of his proposed return.
