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 is one of the PED's user accuser of Pacman. I do not feel sorry for him. He is not only a hypocrite but he damaged the reputation of Pacquiao.

I have watched Oscar forever everyone has a flaw others go to the extreme while others finally achieve sobriety. Oscar come to SW colorado for RnR the lime light is a thing of the past you need to live in a country setting with real working people that care & treat you as you as you not a celebrity you are lucky you can admit your flaw but now you need to be clean & work on helping your kids by being their dad that takes them to games to camp to just read a book with them like I offered above our home is here in SW Colorado for you to visit & relax.. I pray you come thru this soon my daughters & family always give me a hard time cause I have always said you are my boy when your mother passed away I prayed for your family I continue to pray for you, you are a great person get back on track now you should know who your REAL friends are cause that is what you need FAMILY and true friends.

Only reason why De La Hoya was successful in boxing was because he was on performance enhancing drugs, just like Muhammad Ali was.
