By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Oscar de la Hoya’s first opponent in 12 years is promised to be ‘worldwide news’ and ‘one of the biggest fights this year’.
The 48-year-old boxing legend announced that he will return to the boxing ring on July 3, having not fought since his December 2008 stoppage loss to Manny Pacquiao.
There have been reports that the former six-weight world champion could step into the ring against an MMA superstar.
Ryan Kavanaugh, film producer for social media app Triller who are promoting the fight, has promised De la Hoya’s opponent in two months will be big news.
He told the Sun: ‘We are almost done, but if we get this person it will be worldwide news.
‘I’d argue it would be one of the biggest fights in the world this year.
