In a riveting conversation, boxing world's "Golden Boy", Oscar de La Hoya reveals to "Aqui y Ahora's" Teresa Rodriguez how his addictions led him to loose his luster and almost his life.
De La Hoya is one of the top names when discussing the greats of the boxing world. Bursting onto the amateur scene shortly after graduating high school, he won the gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. De La Hoya soon left the amateur circuit with a resounding record of 223-5 with 63 KOs. After that, he entered the world of professional boxing and went on to beat 17 world champions and win 10 world titles. De La Hoya has two children with his wife Millie Corretjer and three other children from previous relationships.
In 2002, De Le Hoya founded Golden Boy Promotions, becoming the first Hispanic to own his own promotional company. The company has set multiple broadcasting records and currently promotes the WBC Welterweight Champion, Victor Ortiz.
