Footnotes

  • This Golden Boy earned his nickname during the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona where his outstanding performance earned him a gold medal at the age of 20. The Los Angeles, California native then made his professional boxing debut in November 23, 1992 with a first round knockout win over Lamar Williams in front of his home crowd.

    With a perfect record, Oscar de la Hoya secured a title fight for the WBC super lightweight title against the Mexican legend Julio Cesar Chavez. The fight had no favorite because the great skills of De la Hoya and the historic record of Chavez billed the two as an elite matchup. The Golden Boy landed a hail of punches all over Chavez opening a deep cut and causing a mask of blood.

    After having defended his title for the first time, he decided to move up to the welterweight division and faced Pernell Whitaker for the world title on April 12th, 1997 in Las Vegas, Nevada. A thrilling fight, De la Hoya earned himself another green and gold belt. Ambitious and multi-talented he then moved up to super welterweight division conquering the title against tough Spanish veteran Javier Castillejo.

    The "Golden Boy" remains the first and only fighter in history to have conquered ten titles in six different divisions: superfeather, lightweight, superlight, welterweight, superwelter and middleweight. Truly a Golden legacy.
