Kevin Hart recently tried his hand at boxing during a sparring match with professional poker player Antonio Esfandiari. Hart ended up losing the match but he was able to hold his own pretty decently. While you probably won’t see Hart pursue a career in professional boxing anytime soon, former boxer and legend of the sport Oscar De La Hoya sees a big opportunity when it comes to Hart. De La Hoya spoke to TMZ Sports about Hart’s boxing prowess, saying the comedian and actor could stand to make a lot of money.
“If he wants a promoter, Kevin, give me a call. I can put you on the big stage here in Vegas live on DAZN,” De La Hoya said. “I can get him a few fights, 4 rounders, 6 rounders, build him up to the championship level.”
De La Hoya is currently promoting the fight between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs which is going down on Saturday. The former boxer says if Hart really wanted to, De La Hoya could get him a huge fight in Los Angeles.
“I have the perfect location. We can do it at the Staples Center, headlined by Kevin Hart, live on DAZN, make a lot of money,” De La Hoya said. “I could make up a championship belt that would fit around his waist. Come on Kevin let’s do it.”
