While nothing is "set in stone" or even close, De La Hoya told recent interviewers that he's considering a unification bout between Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson that would take place in Washington D.C. in the near future. Another possible fight mentioned is a rematch between Peterson and Amir Khan.
We’re looking forward to staging a big-time boxing event at the Verizon Center. Who knows, maybe Peterson-Amir Khan or Danny Garcia. I think those are the types of fights the public, the D.C. fight fan, wants to see."
De La Hoya backed off on specifics in a follow up interview with the RING saying, "There is nothing written in stone but Washington D.C., is a great city for boxing."
Certainly it's not news that a promoter is talking about the fights fans want to see. But it's good to hear Oscar discussing some legit match-ups. Here's hoping he can deliver.
