Oscar De La Hoya SpeakerAn illustrious career that included 10 titles in six weight divisions, an Olympic gold medal and 10 world titles, the Golden Boy, Oscar De La Hoya found a permanent home in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

“Today marks an incredible personal achievement,” said De La Hoya, who had an amateur record of 223-5 with 153 knockouts. “But it is only the latest milestone that never would have been possible without my family, my friends and, most of all, my fans.”

The Hall of Fame’s 25th class also included two of De La Hoya’s contemporaries in the modern era, Puerto Rican star Felix “Tito” Trinidad and Joe Calzaghe of Wales.

Also inducted were George Chaney, Charles Ledoux and Mike O’Dowd in the old-timer category; Tom Allen in the pioneer category; and promoter Barry Hearn, referees Richard Steele and Eugene Corri, journalist Graham Houston; and Sports Illustrated photographer Neil Leifer in the non-participant and observer categories.

De La Hoya won the lightweight gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. He turned pro later that year and captured his first world title, the WBO super-featherweight crown, in only his 12th bout.

De La Hoya won 10 titles in six weight divisions, an Olympic gold medal and 10 world titles. On Sunday June 8, 2014, he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame’s 25th class. De La Hoya also won titles as a lightweight, light welterweight, welterweight, light middleweight and middleweight.
