Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya has been retired since a 2008 knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao, but last week he created shockwaves when he appeared on a radio show and revealed that he's seriously considering the possibility of returning to the ring.
Two days after his radio appearance, he stirred the pot even further by telling TMZ Sports that his preference, for his comeback opponent, would be IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.
"If I ever come back, and I think about it every day, I'll fight Triple G," De La Hoya said.
BoxingScene.com spoke with De La Hoya on Saturday night, following Miguel Cotto's knockout of Daniel Geale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
When BoxingScene asked De La Hoya if he'd like to see the Cotto vs. Saul Alvarez winner face Golovkin next, the former five division world champion stirred the pot even further with the following statement and his face brightened up with a big smile as he said it.
"They have get in line behind me - if I make my comeback," De La Hoya said to BoxingScene.com.
