Oscar to return to the ring?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Future Hall of Famer Oscar de la Hoya, who retired in April, may return to the ring during the WBA’s Latin American “KO to Drugs” Festival on September 5 in Panama CIty. Oscar would box WBA Executive vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza in an exhibition charity event to raise funds to fight against cancer. Mendoza Jr. said he will meet with “The Golden Boy” on June 25 in Los Angeles to get a final answer on Oscar’s participation. Mendoza Jr. has previously boxed Evander Holyfield and John Ruiz in similar charity events.
