Conor McGregor pulled from UFC 219: Agent issues strong denial

Conor Mc Gregor GSP

Oscar De La Hoya was a very vocal critic of this past August's boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, but, the retired fighter / promoter has reportedly called out the latter...

In an interview with Dash Radio, De La Hoya even claimed that he could knockout McGregor within two rounds. Secretly training. I'm faster than ever, and stronger than ever. Two rounds, that's all I need.

Following McGregor from his transition as a largely unknown fighter to the status he now enjoys, the film includes highlights from throughout his career including winning the UFC championship belt in just 13 seconds and his shock loss to rival Nate Diaz, culminating in his recent foray into the world of boxing and his record-breaking Las Vegas bout against Floyd Mayweather. 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. Much more than that though, McGregor is a personality who is hard to ignore and is admired within and without the world of UFC for his unrivalled passion, dedication and commitment.

"Mr Redmond was knocked - I don't want to say he was unconscious - but he was hit quite heavy".

Annapurna studios was established by Nageswara Rao Akkineni and at present, Akkineni Nagarjuna is the chairman of the same. Another report states that Chiranjeevi's upcoming film -Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy's sets incurred serious damage as well.

McGregor is no stranger to swapping the cage for the ring, having fought and lost to Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas earlier this year. You heard it on Golden Boy Radio.

De La Hoya also apparently conceded that McGregor would "destroy" him in the cage, which, yes, is a given. [My confidence] is how I feel now from my training.

"I've been working out for the last five months".

McGregor exceeded expectations on his boxing debut against Mayweather, taking the undefeated icon 10 rounds, but has made clear his desire to return to mixed martial arts and defend his lightweight title. De La Hoya famously referred to the Mayweather-McGregor fight as a "farce" while making a point to say that he thought the sport of boxing may never recover from such a bout. "You know I still have it in me".

De La Hoya, on the other hand, has been involved in some of the most lucrative fights of the century.
