Things just got a little more interesting for the Cotto vs. Canelo fight on November 21, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV!
Roc Nation Sprts’ founder, Jay-Z, and Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Oscar De La Hoya are pretty confident that their fighter will win.
How confident? $100,000 confident!
It all started out when Jay-Z and Oscar De La Hoya visited their boxers’ camp and boasted about their fighter’s ability to win.
Things eventually came together and Jay-Z and De La Hoya decided to put their money where their mouth is: Winner of the bet will use their earnings towards their charity.
If Cotto and Jay-Z win, then De La Hoya will donate $100,000 to the Shawn Carter Foundation. If Canelo and De La Hoya win, then Jay-Z will donate $100,000 to Oscar’s efforts at the White Memorial Medical Center’s cancer unit.
