OSCAR DE LA HOYA believes undefeated champ Floyd Mayweather should forget about Conor McGregor and instead fight either Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin.

Talks of a mega-money fight between Mayweather and UFC star McGregor have been in the pipeline for months but a financial plan over the scrap is proving to be a “nightmare.”

And it is putting the proposed bout that the world wants to see in serious jeopardy.

But De La Hoya, who endured defeat against Mayweather in 2007 through a unanimous decision, believes the “Money” should be thinking about other plans.

“Mayweather should go after the winner of Canelo vs triple G.
