Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De La Hoya has reached out to Bob Arum and Top Rank in an effort to end boxing's "Cold War." One of the fights which De La Hoya has proposed is Manny Pacquiao vs. Danny Garcia.


Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De La Hoya has reached out to Bob Arum and Top Rank in an effort to end boxing's "Cold War." 

De La Hoya has proposed future fights pitting Golden Boy fighters against Top Rank fighters. One such bout is Manny Pacquiao vs. Danny Garcia, per a Sept 2 update from BadLeftHook.com's Wil Esco:

"Oscar De La Hoya seems genuine in his desire to end boxing's long-running 'cold war.' To do so, Oscar has been reaching out to Bob Arum to discuss potential future fights.

"With Golden Boy seemingly on the ropes after Richard Schaefer's departure, De La Hoya has been putting on a full court press to reconcile with Bob Arum and Top Rank so they could put on some big fights in the near future. Most of the key fighters affiliated with Golden Boy are under contact with advisor, Al Haymon, and whether or not they actually have promotional deals with Golden Boy is still unclear (although it's probably safe to assume they don't at this point).

"With most of the GB talent in a stage of limbo, as far as promotional contracts are concerned, Oscar is reaching across the aisle to see if the company can't put some big fights together to re-secure their place as top promotional brand in the sport. In particular, one of the matchups Oscar would like to put together is Manny Pacquiao vs. Danny Garcia.

"'We're going to talk about ending the Cold War between Golden Boy and Top Rank. My objective is is to make the big fights,' said De La Hoya. 'Golden Boy has fighters that can fight Top Rank fighters and who can make great fights. We want to make great, exciting fights that the people want to see, and that's what I want to talk to Bob about.

"'You could have Danny Garcia versus Manny Pacquiao. What a fight that would be. That's what I want to talk to Bob about. Danny Garcia versus Manny Pacquiao? Come on,' said De La Hoya.

"'You would have the young, strong bull versus the not-so-young strong bull in Manny. Those are the types of fights and matches that I want to talk to Bob and see what we can come up with.'

"Bob Arum has acknowledged De La Hoya's efforts and says he's open to working together to see if the sides cannot work out a marquee fight.

"'That's correct. Oscar called me at the ballpark, and we arranged to have our talk. When I finish with the tour in New York, I'll be flying to Los Angeles,' said Arum, 82, under whom De La Hoya turned professional after winning an Olympic gold medal in 1992.

"'I'll be meeting with Oscar over the weekend. I have always had a fatherly relationship with Oscar. We went through a whole period of his life, and, of course, my life, together, and I have very warm feelings about him.

"'I think that we can talk about Pacquiao and Garcia. That's a fight that might make a lot of sense,' said Arum, who has spoken to Pacquiao and his advisor, Michael Koncz, about Garcia.

"'I've mentioned the possibility of that fight to Manny and Michael for down the road, and obviously, that's something that might be of interest to our side, and I'm glad that they have expressed interest from his side. We haven't talked about it, Oscar and I, but that's a fight we would be interested in talking about.'"  

Just last month, De La Hoya told ESPN.com's Dan Rafael he's also pushing for a Garcia vs. Lamont Peterson bout before 2014 ends:

"Like most boxing fans, Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar De La Hoya would have preferred to see junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia before facing titleholder Lamont Peterson in the main event of last Saturday's Showtime card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

"For whatever reason, the fight was not made. De La Hoya and Showtime both said it was the fight they preferred but that the match could not be made for that date -- even though both boxers said they were willing to fight each other. That leaves only their adviser, Al Haymon, who did not want to make the fight. And when he doesn't want to make a fight involving the fighters he works with, it doesn't happen.

"Instead, Garcia smoked no-hoper Rod Salka in two lopsided rounds in a nontitle bout at 142 pounds, dropping him three times, including for a devastating knockout on the third knockdown.

"Peterson retained his title in his own mismatch, battering helpless Edgar Santana for 10 one-sided rounds before the abuse was finally called off. 

"If De La Hoya has his way we won't see that kind of card again. He told ESPN.com on Thursday that he was going to press Haymon to make the fight for the end of the year.

 

"'I'm sitting down with Al (on Friday) and we're going to discuss it,' De La Hoya said. 'That's the fight I'm going to push for. That's the fight that must be made.

"'Al knows it and understands. We're on the same page. We must make the best fights happen because the fans are speaking, the media is speaking and the fighters want these fights. It's a matter of me sitting down with Al and talking it over. Al understands that.'"
