Oscar De La Hoya left boxing ring after his last fight against Manny Pacquiao, almost 12 years ago.

Now 47 years old, De La Hoya talked to the media and stated that he is planning to come out of his retirement and make a comeback professionally.


He told the media that he will start sparring in the next few weeks.

This is different from other comebacks such as Mike Tyson,  De La Hoya (39-6, 30 KOs) said, because he is planning to participate in "a real fight" and not some exhibition.


He further added that he misses the ring, he loves boxing. Boxing has given him everything that he has today and he just misses doing it.

"The Golden Boy" won gold at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona for the United States and received world title belts at six different weight classes before he fought against Pacquiao.

He is planning to fight at the 154- to 160-pound range.
