Diego De La Hoya vs. Renson Robles Live Stream Boxing On FuboTV
For the second time in more than a year, Diego de la Hoya will prepare for a homecoming appearance.
This time around, it’s needed more than ever.
The 25-year old featherweight will land atop a Golden Boy Fight Night card slated for Dec. 14 in his hometown of Mexicali, Mexico. de la Hoya will face Venezuela’s Renson Robles in the evening’s main event, Golden Boy Promotions executive matchmaker Roberto Diaz confirmed to todaylivefree.com.
Diego De La Hoya (21-1, 10 KOs) will seek to bounce back from his first and only loss with a hometown battle against Renson Robles (16-6, 9 KOs) in the 10-round main event of the Dec.14 edition of Golden Boy Fight Night on Facebook Watch at The Auditorio del Estado in Mexicali, Mexico. The fights will be streamed live globally on Facebook Watch via the Golden Boy Fight Night Page.
de la Hoya sought to rebound in 2019, but remains winless on the year. He finally landed a fight in Mexico, only for an April appearance in Monterrey resulting in a two-round No-Contest with Enrique Beranche in their featherweight bout. Three months later came the first loss of his career, suffering a 6th round stoppage at the hands of current Top 10 junior featherweight contender Ronny Rios.
Robles is a native of La Victoria, Venezuela who has faced the likes of Luis “La Pantera” Nery and Norbelto Jimenez in a professional career that initiated in 2014. The 35-year-old will look to derail De La Hoya’s comeback fight on Dec. 14.
A comeback is precisely what’s required for de la Hoya (21-1, 10KOs) to reclaim his stride. The once rising junior featherweight contender has seen a far fall from grace ever since positioning himself for a title shot in 2018. Efforts to squeeze in one more fight prior to such opportunity prompted his handlers—including his promoter and 1st cousin, Hall of Fame former six-division titlist Oscar de la Hoya—to put together a fight in Mexicali for the first time in his career
