Another thing “The Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya had going for him was the women. Most of his fights were filled with women who came to the fights just to see him, over 40 percent to be exact.
The ladies loved Oscar, and I am sure they still love him today. He was also dubbed the number 1 pound for pound fighter in the world at one period in his career after he took that pound for pound title from Pernell “Sweet Pea” Whitaker.
Did you know, however, that Oscar De La Hoya lost his first professional fight in 1999 when he faced another then undefeated fighter Felix “Tito” Trinidad. This fight was one of the biggest Pay-Per-View extravaganzas in boxing history.
