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.

Oscar's GBP is on financial limbo. That is why he is taking something for stress. I will not be surprise Shaffer will resign sometime this year before the GBP will collapse or file bankruptcy.

Manny Pacquiao is taking steroids. Lance Armstrong clearly took PED's. Oscar Delahoya has a substance issue.

I wish athletes were setting a better example for the kids.

It's sad that Pacquiao is taking steroids.

floyd has all the reasons to be afraid of manny. it's going to be the usual routines for mosts of his opponents. what if money will fight manny and he ends up knock out in just one round. that could be the most devastating and shameful boxing carrer in his entire life...so, it's better to back off than be humbled by the pinoy icon...
