Oscar De La Hoya will not be at ringside for Mayweather vs. Canelo


By Eliud Vazquez Torres

A little while ago Oscar De La Hoya made a statement through Golden Boy Promotions, expressing that he will not be attending the Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez prize-fight and instead will be in rehabilitation. His statement is written below.

“Canelo Alvarez 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.”

More details as this story develops at a later time.
