Take that, Mr. Trump: A Mexican and a Muslim Walk into a Boxing Ring… in America

I really wanted to avoid talking about You-Know-Who on this venerable blog, but I couldn’t resist helping my paisano, Oscar de la Hoya, spread the word about his super terrific plan to sticking it to El Trumpo.

In an effort to prove that Muslims *and* Mexicans are welcome in the U.S., Mr. De la Hoya is organizing a mega fight between two of the most popular Muslim and Mexican boxers on the planet: Amir Khan, of Britain, and Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, from Mexico. The “mega mega” fight is to take place in Las Vegas this May 7 and the motivation behind it is simple –and awesome:

As Mr. De la Hoya told CNN about You-Know-Who:

“It’s mindboggling to know that he has those types of philosophies and thoughts,” said American-Mexican De La Hoya, seemingly referring to Drumpf’s call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S., and building a wall between the country and Mexico.

Way to go, Oscar! See you in Vegas and hopefully not in the deportation plane back to Mexicou!
