Oscar De La Hoya Checks Into Rehab!

Boxing great Oscar De La Hoya has checked himself into treatment!

The 38-year-old retired legend is said to be seeking treatment at a rehab facility for a substance abuse problem. He has checked into a California area facility within the last few weeks, according to TMZ.

They report:

De La Hoya has posted a flurry of very introspective tweets in the past few days, including, “Take a deep breathe and let out all that anger that makes you hate. it really is going to be o.k.” and “Stop finding excuses not to live. life is controlled by what you make of it and not of what it makes of you.”

Hopefully he’s able to battle his demons with the same fervor that he’s used to battle his opponents in the ring.

More details on this story as they become available! Stay tuned!
