Oscar De La Hoya absolutely rips into 'tough guy' Dana White after he slapped his wife

Oscar De La Hoya has ruthlessly hit out at Dana White after he slapped his wife at a night club to celebrate the New Year.

The UFC president and his wife got into a physical altercation while on holiday in Mexico, with the unsavoury incident caught on video.

The video shows him talking to his other half, Anne, who has her hands over her face before he grabs her wrist.

She responded by slapping him in the face, with the 53-year-old reacting by slapping her in the face.

De La Hoya, who has a long-running beef with White, has weighed in on the situation and has pulled no punches.

He branded White 'greedy' and slammed what he did to his wife in a brutal post on social media.

'The Golden Boy' tweeted: "My good friend @danawhite is so greedy he decided to steal fighter pay from his new league on TBS ‘Power Slap’ by getting fighter of the night against his WIFE. Those Boston aerobic instructors are real tough guys."

White addressed the controversy with his wife in an interview with TMZ.

"My wife and I were out on Saturday night on New Year’s Eve, and unfortunately that’s what happened. I'm one of the guys, you’ve heard me say for years, there’s never, ever an excuse for guy to put his hands on a woman, and now here I am on TMZ talking about it," he said.

"My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years, we’ve known each other since we were 12 years old. We’ve obviously been through some sh*t together, we’ve got three kids and this is one of those situations that’s horrible, I’m embarrassed, but it’s also one of those situations that right now, we’re more concerned about our kids.

"We have three kids and obviously since the video popped up, we’ve shown the kids the video. We’re more focused on our family right now. People are going to have opinions on this, and most of the people’s opinions would be right, especially in my case.

"You don’t put your hands on a woman ever. My wife and I love each other, we’ve been together for a very long time. We’ve known each other since we were very little, and this is just one of those unfortunate situations."
