Oscar De La Hoya I Changed My Mind ... Floyd Wouldn't Get Wrecked in UFC

3/5/2018 12:45 AM PST

Oscar De La Hoya Changes Tune on Floyd, 'Can Do Well' in UFC


Just a month ago, Oscar De La Hoya told us Floyd Mayweather would get strangled unconscious in 10 SECONDS in a UFC fight.

But now, Oscar's pullin' a 180 -- telling us he truly believes Floyd "can do well" if he steps inside the Octagon.

Don't get it twisted -- Oscar hasn't forgotten about the Floyd-Conor McGregor "circus" pulling attention off the first Canelo vs. GGG fight ... but it seems like he's turned a new leaf with Canelo-GGG 2 taking center stage on May 5.

"I wish him all the best," De La Hoya told TMZ Sports. "If a boxer, and one of my colleagues, is gonna go inside the cage, I obviously have to go and support Floyd." 

Just as long as it's after May -- right, Oscar?
