LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - East L.A.’s Oscar De La Hoya has gone from holding a bouquet of flowers at the Barcelona Summer Games in 1992 to the brightest star in the history of boxing to National Hero to chairman and chief executive officer of Golden Boy Promotions. De La Hoya has taken on important civic-minded projects, such as, funding the Cecilia De La Hoya Cancer Center, Oscar De La Hoya Labor & Delivery Center, and Oscar De La Hoya Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at White Memorial Medical Center in East L.A., opening the Oscar De La Hoya Ánimo Charter High School and hosting an annual charity gold tournament at the Lakeside Golf Club to raise money to help support programs in East Los Angeles.
Now, the "Golden Boy" says he would consider a run for president of the United States.
“If Arnold (Schwarzenegger) can be governor, if Trump can be president, then why can’t a Mexican-American who won an Olympic gold medal, who’s over 35 and a U.S. citizen run for president?” De La Hoya told reporters and a representative of K1LLER, Inc..
