De La Hoya enters treatment center, will miss Álvarez-Mayweather

Oscar De La Hoya, El Golden Boy, announced Tuesday that he will not be at the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Álvarez.

De La Hoya has been fighting with alcohol and drug addiction and will willingly check himself into a treatment center.

In a statement, De La Hoya said:

“Canelo Álvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is the ring and mine in treatment. I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility. I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and longterm recovery from my disease must come first. Thank you for your understanding. I ask for your support and privacy during this difficult time for me and my family. “

We wish De La Hoya the best and are hopeful he will knock out this problem as much as we are hoping for a knock out in this weekend’s fight! ¡Si Se Puede Oscar!
