De La Hoya enters into rehab in California for some sort of addiction but it is still remain unclear as to what kind of addiction he is presently suffering. There are so many speculations coming out and one notable is that he enters rehab for drug abuse but nothing is definite though.
In fact, in the statement that he issued through Golden Boy Promotions is quite fuzzy as well and he did not talking about it directly and this is what he said:
"After doing an honest evaluation of myself, I recognize that there are certain issues that I need to work on. Like everyone, I have flaws, and I do not want to be one of those people that is afraid to admit and address those flaws.
Throughout my career and my life, I have always met all challenges head-on, and this is no different. I am confident that with the support of my family and friends, I will become stronger, healthier person.
I ask for respect and provicy as my family and I go through this process."
