De La Hoya Reaches Out to Turki Al al-Sheikh

Golden Boy Promotions' head, Oscar De La Hoya, has reached out to Turki Al al-Sheikh, the head of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority, with a collaboration proposal.

Turki shared a video showcasing young Saudi boxers training in Mike Tyson's boxing gym and captioned it: "In awe of the development happening in Mike Tyson's gym... By God's will, a generation of Saudi, Arab, and international fighters will emerge from this gym."

Oscar responded with a comment on the video, saying, "I have promoted thousands of fighters, including Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Ryan Garcia. I can recognize a true fighter and make you proud."
