Mestizo Boxer Makes Pathetic Effort to Taunt Trump

OSCAR DE LA HOYA.

In a show of strong racial solidarity, Mexicans in my location (San Antonio, Tx) follow every move made by Oscar de la Hoya, both in the ring and out of the ring. He’s a real hero to the Texican. He was in the local paper all the time when I subscribed.

Wikipedia offers an outline of his less than exemplary life. For sure, he’s NOT a Mexican Tim Tebow, but a bad boy, born in Los Angeles while holding dual American and Mexican citizenship. Like most Mestizo males, he has a taste for white meat, having had a kid with Shanna Moakler. He has plenty more offspring, fathered with a variety of women fame whores.

His latest insult hurled at Senor Trump is truly not grounded in reality and is quite childish.

New York Times

President Trump has long been known as a boxing fan. But a former world champion is using an ad to promote a coming fight to taunt the commander in chief over his proposal to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

Oscar De La Hoya, who won titles in several weight classes, is broadcasting an ad to promote a Cinco de Mayo weekend match between boxers of Mexican descent, Saúl Álvarez and Julio César Chávez Jr. The spot, being shown on DirecTV and Dish Network, shows both men barreling through a concrete wall.

“The idea of a wall was a direct hit to Donald Trump,” De La Hoya said in a telephone interview, “obviously, given what’s taking place, and given the comments that Trump has made had really impacted many people and have rubbed many people the wrong way.”

He added: “This is letting him know that not every Mexican is what he’s stated they are. Mexicans are hard workers.”

De La Hoya is among the most prominent Mexican-Americans to denounce the president’s comments about immigration and his proposal to erect a wall to prevent Mexicans from entering the United States illegally.

It is another instance of Mr. Trump’s political statements filtering into popular and sports culture. Mr. Trump began his presidential campaign in June 2015 with a speech in which he described Mexican immigrants as bringing “in crime, they’re rapists,” before adding that some, he assumed, are good people.

Yet boxing is a cultural milieu that Mr. Trump knows well. A former casino owner in Atlantic City, he has attended bouts and was even invited by De La Hoya to a Cinco de Mayo match last year.

But around that same time, De La Hoya suggested that Mr. Trump cheated at golf, and there has been a rift between the men since. “He said, ‘I would love to go,’ and he was actually ready to attend the fight, but then a few minutes later some comments that I made about him cheating in golf came out,” the boxer said.

Early last May, De La Hoya said he would vote for a candidate who did not cheat at golf. Mr. Trump, who owns several golf courses, took the slight angrily, and denied he had ever golfed with the boxer.

A video later emerged of De La Hoya watching Mr. Trump at a promotional golf event in 2010.

The White House declined to respond to an email seeking comment.

  1. Boxing is a guy thing. I think it’s gross all around. And boxers must be dumb as a box of rocks to make a living getting beat up.

    Then again, getting beat up is what brought George Foreman to salvation, so I guess boxing has its positive aspects:

    “George Foreman – Duel with Death – George Foreman’s Testimony” (12-minute interview/video):

      • He is lovable. I’ve seen several of his interviews over the years; always soft-spoken, humble sort of guy. He became a preacher of a little Texas church in the years after his conversion. He may still be the preacher. He has a big ranch in Texas, I forget where exactly.
