The Dana White vs. Oscar De La Hoya feud is exploding — but how would things go down if they settled their differences in the ring?
Oscar has some thoughts … “I would beat his ass.”‘
The two have been at each other’s throats ever since White announced the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight back in June 2017.
Oscar put out a statement calling it a “circus” and said it would hurt the sport of boxing. Dana didn’t appreciate that and blasted him as a lying, stupid “cokehead.”
In fact, White went on ESPN’s “First Take” on Thursday and went scorched Earth on the boxing legend — even challenging him to a face-to-face showdown.
Well, TMZ got Oscar earlier this week in New York and while he jokingly offered Dana a big ol’ kiss for the holidays … De La Hoya said if the two ever came to blows, it wouldn’t even be a close fight.
Shane Mosley Warns Dana White that De La Hoya Would Destroy Him in Boxing Match
Shane Mosley has some friendly advice for Dana White — DON’T ACCEPT OSCAR DE LA HOYA’S BOXING CHALLENGE … fight him in the Octagon instead!
Remember, Oscar and Dana have been beefing hard lately — with Dana calling Oscar all sorts of nasty names on ESPN.
So, Oscar issued a challenge of his own — going on Sirius XM’s ‘Luke Thomas show’ and saying, “Let’s get in the ring. Three rounds. Let’s do this.”

De La Hoya also told TMZ Sports that he would beat Dana’s ass if things actually came to blows.
And, since “Sugar” Shane Mosley knows exactly what it’s like to fight the Golden Boy — he beat Oscar twice — we asked if he had any advice for the UFC boss.
“Don’t take the challenge,” Mosley joked at the Smash Global MMA party in L.A. … “I wouldn’t do that. That wouldn’t be a smart move.”
Mosley’s fiancee suggested the boxer give Dana some 1-on-1 personal training … but Mosely replied, “It’s not gonna help.”
But, get this, Shane DOES think the guys should fight — but he wants MMA rules since Oscar would have too big of an advantage in a boxing match.
BTW — Mosley also reminded us that he and Oscar BOTH fought Shaquille O’Neal back in the day … and we found the video.
And, it’s AMAZING!!!
