On Oct. 31, Oscar De La Hoya revealed to the public that he struggled with cocaine, alcohol and infidelity -- and has even contemplated suicide.
"Rock bottom was recently," the boxing great said in an interview with Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, according to an English-language transcript it provided. "Within a couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don't have the strength, I don't have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it."
De La Hoya, who retired in 2009 after winning 10 world titles in six divisions, said he had been sober for three months.
