Oscar De La Hoya is hanging up the gloves

After one of the most storied careers in professional boxing, Oscar De La Hoya has finally decided to retire. Most of you probably won’t care about this but as an avid follower of the sport, this is big news to this body gossiper. The athlete-turned-entrepreneur won’t have any trouble staying busy out of the ring but still, Oscar’s emotions are understandably mixed about the big decision.

Oscar has won so many titles in so many different weight classes and has generated so many millions of dollars for himself and many others, it’s safe to say he doesn’t need to do it one more time. And the last few times he’s done it, he hasn’t be so impressive. Now De La Hoya can retire, without scrambled eggs for brains, and enjoy the rest of his very rich life with his family.
