Oscar De La Hoya I Paid GGG Millions To Save Canelo Rematch

6/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Oscar De La Hoya says he was so serious about saving the GGG vs. Canelo rematch, he shelled out millions of dollars of his own money to get the deal done. 

Remember, Oscar -- Canelo's promoter -- previously said Gennady Golovkin wanted a 50/50 revenue split with Canelo or he would NOT accept the fight. 

Oscar came on the "TMZ Sports" TV show and we asked what it finally took to get the deal done -- and the Golden Boy told us it came down to writing a big, fat check. 

"I actually came out with my own money to bridge the gap and make this fight happen," Oscar says. 

"GGG wanted a bigger piece of the pie. It was a matter of a few million dollars. I couldn't get it from Canelo's side because he was gonna stick to his guns ... so I had to come up with the difference."

Good thing he's rich.

Rosado hasn't fought since Oct. 2017 -- but tells TMZ Sports he's "in talks" to make his comeback against Chavez Jr., the former WBC middleweight champ. 

"We might be out here in the Staples Center," Rosado says. 

Perfect location ... dude loves Hollywood

By the way, Rosado lost when he fought GGG, but the dude was a warrior ... fighting into the 7th round in one of the bloodiest fights of Golovkin's career. 

Rosado's corner wanted to stop the fight, but Gabriel wouldn't let 'em. Gotta admit, dude's got heart.

EXCLUSIVE

Welterweight champion Errol Spence absolutely brutalized a man on Saturday night and the happiest guy in the world about it was Adrien Broner ... who turned ALL THE WAY UP after the win.

Spence KO'd Carlos Ocampo in Dallas on Saturday ... and Sunday night he and Broner hit the hottest strip club in Texas -- V Live Dallas -- and kept the party going. 

Errol was chillin' ... but not Adrien, who celebrated like it was his KO, even taking the stage to hit the shoot dance one time, which we're sure all the dancers trying to make nail school tuition appreciated.

BTW -- Spence is from Dallas so it makes sense the hometown was showing him some love ... Adrien, of course, is from any place with music, bottles and strippers.

What's he gonna do AFTER he checks KSI in? We asked if it involved partying with Floyd Mayweather and, guess what ... IT DOES.

"You got to [celebrate with Floyd], bro," Logan told TMZ Sports.

"I trained at his gym, that was my first training session. So, I feel like it's only right."

The thing is ... KSI's also been in Floyd's TMT gym in Vegas -- with Floyd's pops giving him firsthand lessons ... so, either way, it looks like Floyd will get some turn-up.

Farrah Abraham's dodging one big bullet, financially, after her allegedly drunken arrest because a clothing company is standing by their woman.

Farrah's been a major supporter of the Jessica Rich Collection of women's wear. The company's namesake owner tells TMZ ... the brand will continue to back Abraham despite her barking "Go f*** yourself" to police officers during the arrest early Wednesday morning.

TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was arrested early Wednesday morning for allegedly striking a hotel security guard after she was asked to leave The Beverly Hills Hotel. 

The ex-"Teen Mom" and porn star repeatedly laid into cops before she was hauled away.

Although Jessica's giving her a pass this time around -- Farrah might wanna consider walking the straight and narrow ... or risk losing some cash.
