OSCAR COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT


PhilBoxing.com





Legendary retired multi-division world champion Oscar de la Hoya reiterates one more time that he wants to fight again. 🧐

He has said the same countless times, but he never comes back. ✋

But in a new interview on ESPN, De La Hoya, now 47-years, assures from his heart that he misses being in the ring, that he LOVES boxing and that boxing has given to him everything he owes today. 🥊


An Olympic gold medalist in Barcelona 1992 and an inspiration to many, Oscar de la Hoya retired after his 2008 “Dream Fight” rumble against Filipino superstar Manny Pacquiao. 💥💥


That battle was 12 years ago — it was a super exciting clash that I attended at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas together with my dear old hermano Gerry Peñalosa and his beautiful wife Goody. 🌷

It turned out to be one unforgettable, magical, awesome evening for the Pacman and for Filipino boxing. 🔥🔥

But not for Oscar.

The great Oscar de la Hoya did not look good at all on that evening in 2008. 😬 He was slow, confused and overwhelmed. 😬 Would Oscar be BETTER than that in 2020? (Above photo)


— I think we all know the answer to that. 😬😬😬

Still, if Oscar comes back to fight again, lets wish him the VERY best of luck. 🙏 Because he still is — and for always will be a boxing idol. ✅⭐️🥊
