Georges St-Pierre recently reacted to Oscar De La Hoya being admitted to the hospital due to COVID-19.

In an interview with Adam Catterall, the former UFC welterweight champion was told that the boxing match between 'The Golden Boy' and Vitor Belfort was canceled because of De La Hoya's health issues. Georges St-Pierre looked visibly stunned and said:

"No! No! No! That's not true!"

Reacting to rumors that De La Hoya might be replaced by Evander Holyfield, Georges St-Pierre said:

"What?! You're just dropping bombs right now! I didn't know that. You caught me off-guard."

The Canadian superstar also hinted at an appearance in the boxing ring. According to 'Rush,' he remains extremely competitive and still trains in the gym with 'guys that are getting ready to fight.'

Undoubtedly the most successful welterweight of all time, Georges St-Pierre held the record for most wins in title bouts and the second longest combined title streak in UFC history (2,204 days). During his dominant reign, GSP defended his UFC welterweight title nine times.
