(AllHipHop News) De La Hoya stopped by DJ Whoo Kid’s hit show “The Whoolywood Shuffle” on Eminem’s Shade 45, and shared a variety of thoughts about the upcoming fight.

“The late great Emanuel Steward, who trained me for maybe about four or five fights, he once showed me a video where he was training Eminem. Man, he had some moves. He was punching the hand mitts and he was moving and he looked really good, actually, with a lot of power.”
