0521_oscar_de_la_hoya_EX
We're told De La Hoya is seeking treatment for a substance abuse problem and checked into a California-area facility within the last few weeks.

De La Hoya has posted a flurry of very introspective tweets in the past few days, including, "Take a deep breathe and let out all that anger that makes you hate. it really is going to be o.k." and "Stop finding excuses not to live. life is controlled by what you make of it and not of what it makes of you."

De La Hoya retired back in 2009. He had a career record of 39-6, held several championship belts, and won an Olympic Gold Medal back in 1992.

Pacqy put him onto Queer Street during the fight and De La Hoya decided to stay there and try on some fishnets.

I think the real reason is his out control cross dressing probably:) He seemed to enjoy it.

KARMA    

This is the "Irony" on the life of Oscar De La Hoya, both Mayweather and De La Hoya accused to the public the P4P King Manny Pacquiao used illegal substanceand are now both defendants in the case filed against them, I said Irony because both of them are now in the situation wherein their judgement against Pacquiao are presently reflecting in a very bad Karma in their lives. Everyone can see now,who has actually used abused substances that ruined one's life!!!

Is this some kind of karma. He did get involved in spreading lies about Pacquiao using steroids and now we found out Oscar is a substance abuser? Boxing always has dramas.

The big bad boxer is nothing but a weak little twit - I hate these people who have the world at their finger tips and their still whinning.

Guess Golden Boy liked Pacqy putting him on Queer Street, so he just stayed there.

ODLH should have entered rehab before the Pacquiao fight. Anyhow, I guess he can still sign the Letter of Apology to Manny regarding the steroids inside his rehab facility.
