Former Boxing World Champion Oscar De La Hoya has joined the long queue of fighters who wants to fight Conor McGregor. 

De La Hoya, 44, lost last fought 11 years ago in a losing effort to Manny Pacquiao in an incredibly one-sided fight. 

However, De La Hoya is ready to step between the ropes again for one last time against McGregor. 

“You know I’m competitive, De La Hoya told Golden Boy Radio. 

“You know I still have it in me. I’ve been secretly training. Secretly training.

"I’m faster than ever and stronger than ever. I know I can take out Conor McGregor in two rounds.

"I’ll come back for that fight. Two rounds. Just one more (fight). I’m calling him out. Two rounds, that’s all I need. That’s all I’m going to say.”

McGregor now has potential fights in both the UFC (against either Nate Diaz, Tony Ferguson or Georges St-Pierre) and Boxing (De La Hoya and Paulie Malignaggi) which is sure to generate millions of dollars.
