Oscar De La Hoya enters rehab
Boxer Oscar De La Hoya has entered rehab to seek help for health and personal issues.
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.
