Photo: Oscar De La Hoya is in great shape so let's be dumb about it

"Oscar De La Hoya is buff as hell, dude, he should make a comeback!"

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Oscar De La Hoya is retired. Let's get that out of the way first. Second, he's 42 years old. Third, he hasn't fought in six and a half years. He's not making a comeback, he's not making a comeback, he's not making a comeback.

But he's in pretty great physical shape these days, too.

Oscar's over here looking like a buff middleweight and says he feels "better today than (he) ever did in (his) entire career." So to hell with the rational thought and logic and his age and the fact that he's got a successful company that puts money in his pocket (a lot of it) without getting punched in the face anymore.

DE LA HOYA VS GOLOVKIN, R U YOU PICKING?
