Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions has prepared a massive fight which is close to the mark. His fighter Canelo Alvarez is going to face the Kazakh Gennady Golovkin on September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in one of the most the greatest and most anticipated fight of the year, but unfortunately, De La Hoya is always talking about the fight of Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor than he’s on his own.
Competition is good for business, but it can also a very bad idea to be obsessed with the rivalry of both Mayweather and McGregor. It appears to be De La Hoya to be fallen into the hole. The boxing star turned promoter interviewed by Mike Goldberg and Mike Golic on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike,” and also appeared on the Dan Patrick Show.
He asked obviously about the MayMac fight, so there was some obligation to address the biggest topic in boxing. De La Hoya rant on Twitter seemingly infuriated by the fight as he addresses it.
De La Hoya made himself a part of the story, but not in a good way. Clearly, he’s not dealing with the competition well.
The partner and the CEO for the PCG Companies, Glen Pasch published a short list of best practices you need in business when dealing with a competitor. Three of four on Pasch’s list are relatable on what happened to the feud, and De La Hoya broke the three rules.
Pasch stated that “focused on your mission and not your competition. Be happy for them. Harboring ill will towards their projects will create bitterness in your work. You begin to work harder on your project because of anger to defeat the competition. This approach will influence your projects in a negative way.”
De La Hoya comes out with a very angry statement as he discussed Mayweather and their fight. This is something that is in his control, but he chose to focus on things that will not change. People are still excited for the fight and this fight between Canelo-GGG must be focused by Oscar to be promoted.
