Two top boxers are about to beat each other up in the ring to teach Donald Trump a lesson.
On May 7 rising Mexican boxer Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez will face off against British Muslim Olympic medalist Amir Khan in a championship fight organized by Mexican-American boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya.
De La Hoya claims he drew inspiration for the fight from Donald Trump’s hateful remarks about Mexicans and Muslims. De La Hoya believes the symbolism of a big-ticket event between a Mexican and a Muslim athlete can unite sports fans around the world and give a one-two combo to xenophobia.
“You are going to see a lot of people united, and families and friends,” De La Hoya told Fusion. “That’s what boxing does for a lot of people… it unites, sometimes it can unite a country.”
