Retired Boxer-turned-entertainer And Promoter Oscar De La Hoya Is Seriously Considering A Return To The Ring For A Blockbuster Fight With Either Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Or Gennady Golovkin.
The 42 year old, who stepped away from the sport in 2008 after losing to Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas, admits he's "50-50" about making a comeback later this year (15).
De La Hoya reveals he has the "itch" to return, insisting he's in the best shape of his life.
He tells ESPN.com, "I've gotten everything taken care of - my rotator cuffs, my left hand, everything. I'm pain free. I just feel good and when I walk the streets, everyone tells me, 'You have to fight Floyd again, you have to fight GGG (Golovkin). You can do it, you can do it.
"I want to fight one of them because they are the best and I always fought the best. That's what boxing is all about - fighting the best."
The boxer, nicknamed The Golden Boy, adds, "I just feel great physically. I've been taking care of myself... You can turn the clock back to a certain time."
He tells the website he has already started training for a possible return to the ring, running eight miles a day and steering clear of alcohol, which blighted his boxing career a decade ago.
And Mayweather, Jr. tells BlackSportsOnline.com he is interested in a rematch of his 2007 fight with De La Hoya, which Mayweather, Jr. won.
