However, the idea for the match sent several fans into a frenzy, garnering opinions different from the word fight. De La Hoya and Georges St-Pierre are prominent fighters, having reigned as multi-weight champions in their respective sports. In addition, they have been inactive for some time. “Golden Boy” retired in 2008; ‘Rush’ retired in 2013 and played one last game in 2017.

Therefore, they are perfect opponents for an exhibition. However, since it would be a boxing match, De La Hoya would clearly have advantages as GSP would not be able to use all of their MMA tools in a boxing match.

Oscar De La Hoya vs Georges St-Pierre – Preview

GSP (26-2), arguably the UFC’s greatest welterweight fighter, avenged both of his losses. In addition, St-Pierre is a recognized striker and wrestler. Thus, one can never rule out the possibility of serious action coming from the fists of GSP.

The Canadian fighter, who has been a natural 170-pound fighter his entire life, has demonstrated his ability in the middleweight unit by defeating Michael Bisping for the UFC 217 title. As a result, he will have a serious advantage of size on De La Hoya.

39-6 as a four division champion, De La Hoya weighed around 147 pounds to 154 pounds in his career. So it will be a setback to fight someone in the top weight class. However, the “ Golden Boy ” is an absolute hitter, scoring 30 career stoppage victories. According to his record and the fact that it is a boxing fight, he can still succeed in a show, especially against an unprofessional boxer.

However, boxing is an unpredictable sport where one punch is enough to bring the proceedings to an end.

An exhibition fight will take place under security measures and apparently allow the two ex-champions to show their abilities. While it’s hard to imagine the losing side, it will be an intriguing fight for all the right reasons.
