Oscar De La Hoya has already cemented his place in boxing history after winning no less than 10 titles in six different weight classes.

Oscar De La Hoya has already cemented his place in boxing history after winning no less than 10 titles in six different weight classes. A fighter who has never ducked challenge, De La Hoya has been in the ring with some of the biggest names in the business including: Julio Cesar Chavez, Arturo Gatti, Bernard Hopkins and Floyd Mayweather Jr and on Dec 6 will add the name of Filipino great Manny Pacquiao to that roll of honour. However, De La Hoya says the fight against Pacquiao ? win or lose ? is unlikely to be his last. Is De La Hoya in danger of destroying his own boxing dynasty by continuing on in the sport? Although he does not get beaten up by his opponents, he is starting to chalk up more losses than victories. After the Pacquiao fight, is it time for this ring legend to hang up his gloves?
