Oscar De La Hoya

While not one of my favorite fighters ever, Oscar definitely always had my respect as a competitor.

The Golden Boy was the only US fighter to win gold at the 1992 Olympics in Bacelona. Oscar was one of the world's very best amateur fighters compiling an outstanding amateur record of 234-6 (163 KOs).

Oscar famously won a gold medal for his mother, who died just before his Olympic birth, of breast cancer. He began is pro career in November of 1992.

Angelo Nunez. ODLH w by ref stoppage on cuts. Rd 4. 8-27-93 Videos do not show the stoppage between rounds. You can find several versions on youtube with the ref waving it off, but the audio is horrible on all of them.
