"F*** it. After this podcast, I'm going to call [adviser] Al [Haymon] and tell him to make me a fight with Steph Curry".
The Dallas-based sports agency, which Diaz hired in 2014, is seeking more than $1 million from Diaz and claimed he failed to pay for its services related to several of his fights, most notably his pair of big-money bouts against Conor McGregor in 2016 (at UFC 196 in March and UFC 202 in August).
"I think it puts me in a great spot. He knows me. This is a 50/50 fight". "It's a show", Golovkin said when asked how irked he is for his long-awaited super-fight to be locked in a battle for attention.
But Kazakh-born Golovkin insists: "I know there will be a lot of Mexicans supporting Canelo but they are true boxing fans and they will love this fight. Not a amusing show".
Oscar De La Hoya blasted White in a Wednesday ESPN appearance, calling the UFC boss "disrespectful" for scheduling the fight just three weeks prior to the long-awaited battle between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.
McGregor is also nominated for Best International Athlete, competing against boxer Canelo Alvarez, sprinter Usain Bolt, swimmer Katinka Hosszu and soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo. "No controversies, no talk of, 'Should there be a rematch?'" Alvarez said. "I win, give me a title shot, let's move on", Chiesa said. Not many people are impressed with Mayweather's defensive fighting style, but it's a big reason why he's 49-0 and going for the magical 50th in a row against McGregor. "Hell, if I don't take any punishment after my fight, I would like to fight the next UFC star on the undercard".
Golovkin and Alvarez, who are in the midst of a multicity promotional tour, are on the same side of the issue.
