Ringside at the 3rd Annual Global Crowdfunding Convention and Bootcamp GCCB2014 today, event organizer Ruth Hedges of Pinnacle Crowdfunding Group and Ray Garza announced that the Oscar de la Hoya, the gold Olympic medalist and retired champion professional boxer, will head back into the ring… for a film called Oscar. This could mean an Oscar for Oscar. De La Hoya will turn to the crowd to fund “the biggest boxing film in history.”
De La Hoya was The Ring‘s “Fighter of the Year” in 1995 and Ring Magazine’s top-rated Pound for Pound fighter in the world in 1997 & 1998. De La Hoya officially announced his retirement from the sport at a press conference held in Los Angeles on April 14, 2009. De La Hoya has defeated 17 world champions and has won ten world titles in six different weight classes.
De La Hoya founded Golden Boy Promotions, a combat sport promotional firm. Readers may read more about the future De La Hoya crowdfunding campaign’s progress on Pinnacle Crowdfunding Group, as details become available.
