Rate this:
When he was just a skinny, shy kid riding his skateboard through the streets of the East Los Angeles barrio, Oscar De La Hoya never thought he would one day be one of the world's premier boxers, setting records and winning championships. Neither did anyone else. However, when he was just six years old, he stepped into the ring with his father's encouragement and shocked everyone with his speed, power, and agility. He spent much of his childhood and teenage years honing his talent for defeating opponents in the boxing ring and accumulating wins by knockout. ""Oscar De La Hoya"" is a ""made in America"" story of a young boy with a dream and the perseverance and determination to make it a reality.
