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.

first is Hatton then Dela Hoya..the common denominator Floyd Sr.

Floyd's only strong evidence against Manny is that Manny beat his fighters who are cheating which means that Manny may have access to a better drugs than his fighters. Floyd's Sr. stupid argument against Manny is flawed.

Oscar accused Manny Pacquiao on steroids.. The accuser exposed himself. Now we can conclude that Oscar's achievements in boxing were aided by the different types of drugs to enhance his performance. Not to be called a Golden Boy anymore, instead a DRUG ADDICT BOY... POOR OSCAR. YOU BETTER STOP ACCUSING MANNY ON STEROIDS...
