OSCAR DE LA HOYA FOR PRESIDENT OF THE USA ???
As absurd as it sounds, former multi-division champion, and now leading boxing promoter, Oscar De La Hoya told TMZ he is considering running for President of the United States in 2020 and is putting together a team to consider his likelihood of success. "If the numbers are right, and they tell me it looks good, I am going to go for it," said De La Hoya. In a TMZ Sports interview, De La Hoya added, "I am actually very, very serious, and I strongly feel that if a Kanye West can do it and announce and maybe tease the world that he would maybe one day wanna run for president, why not me? ... I've had literally, over the years, ever since I became a professional in boxing, I've had millions of people tell me, 'Look, why don't you represent? Why don't you stand up and have a bigger voice?' And obviously, the biggest voice you can have is being president." --Scott Shaffer
