De La Hoya received death threats after GGG vs Canelo 1 went to a draw
I imagine being a promoter for any combat sport can be difficult. Setting up a fight where millions of dollars are involved and keeping egos in check at the same time, doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. What sounds even worse is getting threats on your life for something that wasn’t even your fault to begin with.
Apparently, after Canelo Alvarez vs GGG went to a draw the first time, there was misplaced rage by fans thrown De La Hoya’s way. Oscar says that people blamed him for the draw and he did it on purpose, so there could be a rematch.
Of course, as we all know, the judges are hired by state commissions and have nothing to do with promoters. This is similar to when Dana White gets blamed for bad decisions in the UFC.
One day, fans will get it. Not today, but one day.
