Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya retired from his place as a professional pugilist in order to pursue an interest in promoting boxing. Now the founder of Golden Boy Boxing and Golden Boy MMA, it would appear that the former boxing title holder now has other ventures in mind.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Oscar De La Hoya has come foward to claim that he is interested in running for election as the next President of the United States.
“I am actually very, very serious and I strongly feel that if a Kanye West can do it and announce and maybe tease the world that he would maybe one day wanna run for president, why not me?”
“I’ve had literally, over the years, ever since I became a professional in boxing, I’ve had millions of people tell me, ‘Look, why don’t you represent? Why don’t you stand up and have a bigger voice?’ And obviously, the biggest voice you can have is being president.”
