Oscar De La Hoya goes to rehab

Boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya pulls no punches when it comes to addiction -- the fighter says he entered rehab a few weeks ago to battle what TMZ says is a substance abuse problem.

In a statement to the site, De La Hoya said:

"After doing an honest evaluation of myself, I recognize that there are certain issues that I need to work on. Like everyone, I have my flaws, and I do not want to be one of those people that is afraid to admit and address those flaws.

"Throughout my career and my life, I have always met all challenges head-on, and this is no different. I am confident that with the support of my family and friends, I will become a stronger, healthier person.

"I ask for respect and privacy as my family and I go through this process."

De La Hoya has a daughter with reality star Shanna Moakler.
