‘The Golden Boy’ Oscar De La Hoya is upping the trash talk ahead of a proposed rematch between his charge Canelo Alvarez and middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin.

The rematch was meant to happen last Cinco De Mayo weekend but was forced into cancellation following a failed drug test from Canelo Alvarez.

Subsequently, Alvarez was given a six month ban by the Nevada State Athletic Commission retroactive to when he failed the test last March.

Meaning, the rematch was then planned by all (in theory) to happen by this September in Las Vegas once again.

When the next big Mexican fight weekend rolls around.

There’s a snag to that plan, however.

No contracts have officially been signed as of yet and things are still in limbo.

De La Hoya has had this to say to Golovkin:

He did go on to make some more constructive points however.

Namely that Canelo will return this September no matter what:

It is thought that Irishman Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan is being kept on hold for Canelo as a back up option if the Golovkin rematch does not materialize.
