Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya generated a lot of headlines a few weeks ago, when the former six division world champion revealed the possibility of entering the Presidential race in 2020.
De La Hoya would love to run against the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.
"One issue that really hurts me is the children being imprisoned by Donald Trump, who separated families. That helps me decide and do the right thing. I believe that the race deserves [me entering], it needs a voice, it needs a representative that is really there for the well-being of our people," De La Hoya explained to Jose Luis Camarillo of OEM.
Should De La Hoya actually run, he already has a plan in place when it comes to the day to day operations of Golden Boy and the large stable of fighters who need attention.
"There is time for everything. I have a great team with Golden Boy Promotions, I have time for everything, I am a person with many projects; Yes, I have many businesses, but I have my team that is excellent," De La Hoya said.
While many believe this topic is nothing more than a joke, De La Hoya makes it clear that he is "very serious" when it comes to the subject of running for President.
"I am contemplating [the idea of running], I am thinking about 2020 ... to run for the Presidency of the United States. And I'm saying this seriously, because I'm ready to put together my team of advisors, advisors, to help me make a decision," De La Hoya said.
"I already thought [about the strategy], I know what I want to do. And look, I am a person, I am a fighter, I fight for my people, I always defend what is right. And thanks to God and to boxing - which has given me everything, we can campaign intelligently to try to win."
