Oscar: Justice has been served

Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy, has issued the following statement in response to World Boxing Organization’s decision to reinstate Franchon Crews-Dezurn as its super middleweight world champion:

“Justice has been served. The WBO has made the correct decision by reinstating ‘The Heavy-Hitting Diva’ as its super middleweight world champion. Although these things take time, it is always great to see justice in action, especially in the sport that I love the most. We hope that others follow suit in recognizing her as the champion, and we look forward to her ring return in the near future.”

Crews-Dezurn lost her WBC and WBO belts by split decision to Alejandra Jimenez in January, however, the result was changed a no decision by the Texas Commission after Jimenez tested positive for a banned substance. As reported yesterday, the WBC is still investigating the matter.

  • Dont expect the same correct decision from the WBC. They’re a joke and losing respect by the day.

  • I have to be a critic and a comic, but was justice really served when Canelo tested + for a banned substance and a “slap on the wrist” suspension was enforced?

    • what about when DLH himself was tested positive? or Pacquaio or Mayflower or 99% of the top fighters?
