The golden boy himself Oscar De La Hoya.
-- -- -- I'm doing great thank you.
Now you've got a big fight coming up this -- -- -- Floyd Mayweather junior vs Robert -- let me let me ask you straight across the board.
Why should people pay seventy bucks to watch this -- Well it's it's it's not just one fight that's an event that people are gonna watts obviously.
People -- -- watch Floyd Mayweather people wanna watch him in the good fight I think this Saturday night's he's in.
A very very difficult fights.
May -- obviously hasn't fought in the year.
We know the history of of what happened with Mayweather and -- last year where he went to jail.
He's 36 years old people people maybe are thinking wow maybe Saturday night he can probably get beat.
By Guerrero so it's it's going to be very interesting girls -- nine years old.
Great record only one loss strong physical fighters so I think it's going to be very very interesting but.
The whole event from top to bottom is just -- really really get.
-- you're -- a unique situation because you're promoting Floyd Mayweather junior.
But you -- him and probably one of the most of profitable fights most watched fights ever.
What what kind of fighter if you're gonna advise -- Robert Guerrero what kind of fighter is Floyd Mayweather junior.
While -- Floyd Mayweather junior is very elusive fast.
Knows how to use its timing.
He's a thinker he.
Before he throws obviously he knows already what -- is.
-- -- in the land against his opponents.
For instance he doesn't waste punches.
He's a guy who doesn't exert his energy so you can save his energies for the later round so he's very Smart.
I think Guerrero what he has to do is go -- there and just make it a very rough tough physical fight.
Carols playing nine years old there's no reason why he should get tired.
He should fight twelve rounds all the way till the end as hard as he can because.
The bottom line is that when you're 36 is all like Mayweather.
It's just almost impossible to fight.
Hard every single minute of every single round so I think I think -- obviously isn't up to a big part.
With this fight.
I think you know the smarts that technique that Mayweather has the ring general ship that he brings the table is in the play a big part but.
I think I think this fight is a pretty even fight and we know if I mean we might we might see changing of the guards.
-- how how did Floyd Mayweather get to this point where.
You know lead the fight that you promote with him are our events you know -- like the the Super Bowl -- you know he isn't fun a year every every year around this time.
It is a huge fight in everybody buys into it idea how do we get to this point.
Well I think I think you know Floyd whether you want to see him get beat.
Or whether you want to see him keep his record intact and be undefeated and make history.
You know the sport of boxing you know you.
It's like you have to watch him sort of speak you know I mean he he's kind of like.
You know he's the guy who who is undefeated and and the guy who.
You know his colleague -- -- go down in history.
As one of the best fighters in the world.
You know today and you know people want to see and get beat or people wanna see them.
Win and that's different and so.
It's it's not difficult to promote.
Mayweather junior it's not difficult to promote this event because there's a lot of interest worldwide on a global basis.
You know I think I think people realize.
This is Mayweather is.
You know at the tail -- in this career where my panacea for very long so you know people want to take it -- eyes and see I guess greatness.
In the making.
What a one more question for you Oscar.
You know you had a great career.
And now you have an even probably better career with -- golden boy how did you get did that to this point I mean I you are very successful -- a lot of people can't.
You know turn that corner and make it in the business world what do you think -- helped you.
I think I think with the people I've surrounded myself.
I started golden -- promotions while I was active.
What I was fighting.
And so it obviously helped that opened doors for me to go up there and get the dates with.
With showtime or HBO or wherever it was but I think the bottom line is that I understood the fighters I understand what the fighter goes through.
I in the stands.
He I know how to look for talent.
I know what fighter has that this the special gifts.
In order to make it as a champion or even beyond that as a super champion so.
It's it was an easy transition for me.
If it was.
A fun experience.
I mean right now I'm sitting here and I just love -- I enjoy -- I love -- because I'm still part of boxing so.
I mean I know boxing boxing knows me it was it was you know I was.
It was something kind of like that I had to do.
-- -- -- not just to make that transition and have something to do after my boxing career but.
Something I have to dislike can help the sport and help it grow and help it advance.
Well you clearly have made it successful run here I'll tell you that and it's only just beginning for you thank you mr.
