This weekend, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will take on Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in a highly anticipated fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Alvarez works with Golden Boy Promotions, the company whose president is ex-fighter Oscar De La Hoya, one of the richest/most famous/handsomest boxers of all time. Just a sexy, sexy man. De La Hoya, though, announced today that he’ll miss the bout to check himself into rehab; he’s talked in the past about having problems with alcohol and other drugs. It’s the second time this has happened before a big fight he was promoting.
The fight will continue as planned, as will sales of De La Hoya’s self-titled 2000 Latin pop album.
