Oscar De La Hoya still wants to make Jermall Charlo vs Jaime Munguia fight

Oscar says he's willing to make obvious concessions to Charlo as the champion.

De La Hoya says it's a fight that could be broadcast both on Showtime PPV and DAZN.
Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Golden Boy promoter Oscar De La Hoya took so a live stream yesterday to talk about Vergil Ortiz’s fight week before also publicly calling for Jermall Charlo and Showtime to strike a deal to make a fight against Jaime Munguia, even though reports indicate talks have broken off.

“Jaime Munguia vs Charlo. Listen, we want the fight, obviously!” De La Hoya said. “ And Charlo’s the champion, he gets the bigger cut, we all know that, that’s common sense.

"Showtime, yes, you have the fight on Showtime PPV but I need DAZN to participate. They built Jaime Munguia, that’s only fair, it’s business. More platforms, more pay-per-views, more money for the fighters. What’ s wrong with that?!”

Jermall Charlo is most recently coming off a unanimous decision win over Juan Macias Montiel last June and could likely use a good dance partner to bring some excitement back to his career, while Munguia stopped D’Mitrius Ballard last month and could use a step up in level to determine just how good he really is.
