Vitor Belfort’s trainer suspicious of Oscar De La Hoya’s positive COVID diagnosis

By now the world has heard the news that Oscar De La Hoya’s comeback fight (set to take place against Vitor Belfort) will not be happening as scheduled after De La Hoya reportedly caught COVID and couldn’t continue with the fight. And while it appears that Evander Holyfield will be taking De La Hoya’s place in the Triller match, Belfort’s trainer Derik Santos questions whether or not De La Hoya didn’t get a case of cold feet.

“I’m not trying to disrespect Oscar,” Santos said. “I saw the video of Oscar, but if I’m being honest, I’m still skeptical. Something about it didn’t seem right. The level of how bad it looked. I know you can still get COVID if you’re double vaccinated, but it didn’t seem right. Maybe he realized we were taking the fight seriously, I don’t know.”

Santos would continue by saying that De La Hoya really made no effort to even reschedule the fight, inferring that De La Hoya may have realized he was in for more than he bargained for at this point and thought better of it.
