Kermit Cintron challenges De La Hoya, Golden Boy fighters at 160-168


By: Julio Garcia

The boxing bug always comes back one way or another when you’re away from the sport.  For some, it takes a long time and for others not long at all. 

Oscar De La Hoya last fought as a professional against Manny Pacquiao.  He then retired after that fight but has always been involved with boxing through his promotional company Golden Boy Promotions.  De La Hoya announced a comeback not long ago and has made it clear he is serious about his return to the ring.  In fact, in a recent Twitter post, he told fighters to enjoy the remaining few hours of 2020 as he’ll be coming with everything in 2021. It didn’t take long but his Tweet was answered.

“Champ!! I’m looking to making a return to the game,” responded Kermit Cintron who has been away from the ring since early 2018.   “As Champ to Champ, I would like to challenge you or any of your fighters at 160-168.  Looking at meaningful fights.”

The challenge has been issued. Let’s see where it goes from here.
