Boxer Oscar De La Hoya Enters Rehab
Oscar De La Hoya is reportedly battling an addiction to cocaine. In a statement given to the website TMZ, the retired boxer turned promoter wrote, “After doing an honest evaluation of myself, I recognize that there are certain issues that I need to work on. Like everyone, I have my flaws, and I do not want to be one of those people that is afraid to admit and address those flaws. Throughout my career and my life, I have always met all challenges head-on, and this is no different. I am confident that with the support of my family and friends, I will become a stronger, healthier person. I ask for respect and privacy as my family and I go through this process."
The 38 year old ex-boxer retired in 2008 after a loss to Filipino Manny Pacquiao, but only after racking up 39 professional victories to only 6 losses and a startling 6 weight division world championships.
