Oscar de la Hoya Caught ‘Lying’ About Hospitalization?

Oscar de la Hoya was touted as one of the best boxers in the world when he was active. He retired back in 2008 but was set to come out of retirement in his boxing match against Vitor Belfort on September 11th. Unfortunately, Oscar de la Hoya contracted COVID-19 and was left hospitalized. Oscar de la Hoya also revealed the drug Mike Tyson used. 



Derik Santos, the trainer for former UFC world champion Vitor Belfort recently spoke to  Vegas Insider revealed that he is not entirely convinced Oscar de la Hoya pulled out of the match due to COVID-19.

“I’m not trying to disrespect Oscar, I saw the video of Oscar, but if I’m being honest, I’m still skeptical. Something about it didn’t seem right. The level of how bad it looked. I know you can still get COVID if you’re double vaccinated, but it didn’t seem right. Maybe he realized we were taking the fight seriously, I don’t know.

As far as I know, their side didn’t try to jump out and reschedule like others have, so yeah, I’m a little skeptical. I think he thought: ‘what I have got myself into’ – he even posted this. We were going in there to give him a very good boxing match. We were ready. If the man does have COVID then I wish him a good recovery, I’m just mildly skeptical.”
