Oscar De La Hoya: ‘Floyd Mayweather Would Tap Out In 10 Seconds In MMA Fight (VIDEO)
Last year, Floyd Mayweather improved his undefeated boxing record to 50-0 after his victory over UFC star Conor McGregor. To his credit, McGregor held his own, but if the tables were turned? Mayweather wouldn’t be able to last as long in the Octagon, according to Oscar De La Hoya.
When approached by TMZ outside the Staples Center for a Lakers game, he was asked how his former rival would do in a UFC fight. De La Hoya gave Mayweather no chance.
De La Hoya’s prediction — “Tapped out in 10 seconds.”
Back in December, Floyd teased a possible crossover to MMA when he boldly claimed that he could easily make over $1 billion if he signed with UFC.
“They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back. If I want to, I can come right back to the UFC,” Mayweather said. “I can go fight in the Octagon, I can go do a three- or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.”
