VIDEO: Oscar de la Hoya makes embarrassing gaffe trying to congratulate Leicester City

Not for the first time, an American has got it horribly wrong when attempting to give credit to Leicester for their unlikely title triumph.

Earlier in the week an ESPN anchor congratulated Premier League champions 'Tottenham' and last night, legendary boxer Oscar de la Hoya made a similarly hilarious blunder. The promoter took to the podium during the Amir Khan v Canelo Alvarez fight press conference and remarked about how unlikely Leicester's journey to 'Uefa Cup' glory was.

Fair play to de la Hoya for even knowing about a tournament that hasn't gone by that name in almost ten years ago.
