Oscar De La Hoya wants to see Pacquiao/Mayweather

Although the former world champion boxer and founder of Golden Boy Promotions pressed for a matchup between Shane Mosley and Floyd Mayweather Jr. the night of Mayweather's return to boxing in September, Oscar De La Hoya has changed his tune after watching Manny Pacquiao destroy Miguel Cotto on Nov. 14.

It appears now that De La Hoya wants to see Pacquiao fight Mayweather as much as everyone else.

"I think it would be the biggest fight in boxing, which already is on such a great roll," De La Hoya wrote for Ring Magazine. "The ball is in Mayweather’s court; he calls his own shots. But that’s the fight I believe Mayweather wants, Pacquiao wants and the fans want. It’s a fight that should be done."
