De La Hoya Coming Out of Retirement

Oscar De La Hoya told ESPN on Wednesday that he will return to the ring at the age of 47.Twelve years after his last fight, the 11-time titlist confirmed he’s ready to end his retirement.

“The rumors are true, and I’m going to start sparring in the next few weeks,” De La Hoya said. De La Hoya (39-6 30 KOs) added that he will not be engaging in an exhibition fight like fellow retired champions Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. “It’s a real fight,” he said. “I miss being in the ring, I love boxing. Boxing is what gave me everything I have today, and I just miss it.”
