With what now is becoming a worrying trend, it is reported that former multi-weight world champion Oscar De La Hoya is to make a boxing comeback at age 47. He will fighting at super welterweight or middleweight.
De La Hoya (39-6, 30 KO’s) last fought in 2008 losing against Manny Pacquiao.
“Look, it’s been a long time, yes,” De La Hoya said. “But actually, my jab feels faster than ever. I have to make sure that my conditioning is perfect, my health is good. And that’s going to take place in the next few weeks. So, we’ll see.”
Look, my last fight with Pacquiao,” De La Hoya said, “I weighed in at 145 and obviously that was a shell of myself.”
