Oscar De La Hoya claims that he is on his way back to the ring. The 48 year old boxing legend could be lacing up his gloves again soon.

According to TMZ, De La Hoya made this move during the press conference for the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren fight. He even provided a date.

“July 3rd, I’m making my comeback,” Oscar De La Hoya said before dropping the mic he was talking on. That was definitely a moment worthy of a mic drop.

We have no idea who Oscar De La Hoya will be fighting on July 3rd, but he could be getting in shape for a fight this summer. Stay tuned on his opponent, but there are plenty of fighters out there who would love to step in the ring with Oscar.

Oscar De La Hoya is not the only boxer who is eyeing a comeback to the ring. Mike Tyson is looking to fight Evander Holyfield, but they couldn’t make the money work. Now that fight is off.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
