Founder of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De la Hoya, talks Canelo Alvarez being the present and future of boxing.

McLEAN, Va. — The fight the world has begged for since they were, well, much younger — Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao — remains faintly on Oscar De la Hoya's radar.

The Hall of Fame boxer and founder of Golden Boy Promotions, who runs the day-to-day operations of the company named for the former Olympic gold medalist, has handled most of Mayweather's fights since the two fought in 2007.

I guess we are in for another round of Oscar talking out both sides of his face again
