Oscar De La Hoya broke his silence about his past and reveals that he has struggled before from substance abuse, alcoholism and infidelity. He even says that for more than once, has contemplated on committing suicide.
He was recently reached rock bottom in his career and it seems that taking prescription drug abuse addiction and therapy is his only course of action to improve his lifestyle. Many have sympathized with the champion boxer and hopes that he recovers out of his depression soon.
Oscar De La Hoya retired from the boxing ring last 2009 with 10 world titles victories from six boxing divisions. His last title was won in May 2006 after beating Ricardo Mayorga in six rounds for the WBC 154-pound belt. His current boxing record stands at 39-6 with 30 knockouts.
