Oscar De La Hoya
Don’t Tamper with Ryan Garcia!!!

Oscar — who runs Golden Boy Promotions — sent a cease and desist letter to Floyd after Mayweather made a fight offer to Garcia during an interview with TMZ Sports earlier this month.
In the TMZ Sports video, Mayweather looked in the camera and told Garcia — a Golden Boy fighter — that if he’d offer $200k for Ryan to fight Mayweather Promotions fighter Rolando Romero.
Both Garcia and Davis are rising stars in boxing’s super featherweight division — and seem to be on a collision course to battle in the near future.
After making the offer, Floyd invited Garcia to his 42nd birthday party — and the two seemed to be chatting it up … with Oscar nowhere to be seen.
Now, Oscar is pissed — telling TMZ Sports, “There are proper ways of making fights happen. Look, you don’t go out there publicly.”
Oscar added, “The proper way is you send in a contract, you take a look at it and then we talk about it … that’s what real promoters do.”
Oscar says he has not heard “one word” from Floyd’s camp before or after sending the letter.
It sounds like Oscar is still interested in making a Davis vs. Garcia fight — but he refuses to hash it out in the media and wants Floyd to deal with him behind the scenes … or else.
Remember, Oscar was instrumental in Canelo signing a massive $365 million, 11-fight deal with DAZN … so he knows a little something about getting deals done.
