GETTY Conor Mc Gregor has his hands wrapped before his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr

The 44-year-old was highly critical of Floyd Mayweather's match-up with the UFC superstar but seems to have changed his tune, issuing a call-out on Monday.

De La Hoya did say that if a fight could be made it would have to be in the ring as he had no intention of meeting McGregor in the cage, where he admitted "he would freaking destroy me". I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. Plus De La Hoya would only need "two rounds" to take down McGregor. He had jumped in just before the round ended, and with everything that was going on, he hadn't got time to establish whether the fight had been brought to an end yet", said Ryan. "He was trying to get some order back in the cage and that's why he said, 'the fight's not over, lads, you're going to have to leave the cage.' That's when all the mayhem happened.

To be fair, that penalty will be far more detrimental to the UFC than McGregor himself but one would expect a fine of some sort to follow suit. The first thing I wanted to do was inspect him and get Mr McGregor and his crew out of the cage so that's what we did. "Two rounds, that's all I need", he said.

And before we write the bout off as an impossibility, let's all remember that everybody dismissed the initial talk of Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor as absolutely ridiculous but then August came around and they actually met in the ring. "I think Conor thought the fight was going to continue and that's when he went over to him and had words".

It's not clear if De La Hoya is being entirely serious. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.
