DE LA HOYA ENTERS REHAB; WILL MISS MAYWEATHER-ALVAREZ
Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, has issued the following statement: "Canelo Alvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is the ring and mine in treatment. I will not be at the fight this Saturday [against Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas] to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility. I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and long term recovery from my disease must come first. Thank you for your understanding. I ask for your support and privacy during this difficult time for me and my family."
