Oscar De La Hoya has seemingly been supplied a world title shot by Jermell Charlo.
The legendary former six-weight champion is now 47 years of age and used to advertise Charlo inside Golden Boy promotions.
He has lately teased a possible comeback, regardless of having not fought since 2008.
De La Hoya posted on Saturday: “I can do some injury within the 154lbs weight class. #TheComeBack #Coaching #GoldenBoy”
WBC super-welterweight champion Charlo replied: “Oscar De La Hoya, I received’t scare you or attempt to make you cease.
“Come on, you ain’t been touched by this period. You mentioned 154lbs as a result of you already know I’m king, let’s go.”
De La Hoya initially introduced his intention to return by telling Ring TV: “I wish to see what Tyson does first. I’ve been figuring out, I’ve been coaching, I’ve been staying in form.
“Clearly, I’m not in preventing form, but, to go 12 rounds, however I’m certain I can get there. We’ll see.
“I wish to see Tyson carry out. See how his reflexes are, see if he can go previous three, 4 rounds, then I’ll make my choice.”
Concerning who his opponent could be, De La Hoya replied: “I’d actually, actually come again. I’m actually contemplating it.
“Whoever’s the very best on the market, I nonetheless have that mentality.
“It might be at 160lbs. No [I wouldn’t fight Canelo].
“If it’s at 154lbs perhaps, someone developing from 147lbs? Any high, high, high man at 147lbs.”
Rumours surrounding Tyson’s battle recommend the heavyweight legend will seemingly have a charity exhibition.
Nonetheless when requested if this was his plan, De La Hoya replied:, “No, like an actual battle. Critically.”
