Is Cotto-Canelo Bigger Than De La Hoya-Trinidad?
September 1, 2015
According to Oscar De La Hoya, who obviously participated in De La Hoya Vs. Trinidad, and is currently promoting Canelo Alvarez, yes.
Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez will add to the long and storied history of epic Puerto Rico Vs. Mexico wars, including Oscar De La Hoya Vs. Felix ‘Tito’ Trinidad in 1999. De La Hoya feels the fight between Cotto and Canelo will be bigger and better.
“I remember a fight that I was involved in against Felix Trinidad,” said Oscar De La Hoya. “The last time we saw a passion, the last time we saw this hype, Mexico vs Puerto Rico. Now while I was Mexican-American with Mexican roots, the passion was felt throughout the globe. This fight here is bigger than that. This fight here will live up to that expectation when you face a Mexican and a Puerto Rican inside that ring. We are going to get an explosion. You will get a real fight.”
