Oscar De La Hoya vs Vitor Belfort: Date, Venue, Tickets, Live Stream, Odds, Stats And Everything You Need To Know

Here's everything you need to know about Oscar De La Hoya vs Vitor Belfort

Oscar De La Hoya is coming out of retirement at the age of 48 to face former UFC champion Vitor Belfort and boxing fans around the world are eagerly counting down the days. 

The two legendary fighters will battle it out for the ultimate bragging rights in an eight-round boxing match in Los Angeles to settle the debate once and for all as to whether mixed martial arts or boxing is better. 

De La Hoya, nicknamed 'The Golden Boy' of boxing, believes he is still capable of winning another world title as he targets some mega fights in the future as he prepares for his professional boxing comeback.

Speaking on Mike Tyson's podcast in July, the 48-year-old said that he has Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr firmly in his sights as he prepares for a return to the ring after 13 years out of action. 

“You inspired me Mike," De La Hoya told the former unified heavyweight world champion. 

“Looking as good as you did against Roy, just for coming back you inspired me.

“So I said, ‘I wanna do it too.’

“I wanna do two of these fights and then, guess what? I wanna do a real fight, a 12-round fight with either Floyd or Canelo.”
