Holly Sonders Makes Retired Boxer Oscar De LaHoya Feel Like ‘King Kong’

Oscar De La Hoya is not looking to fight anymore, at least not right now.

The legendary boxer was planning on a return to the ring, no doubt he was looking for another payday. Now he’s not stepping back in. He’s over the grind, and he has other things that keep him busy. For one his girlfriend Holly Sonders.

De La Hoya feels energized by his girlfriend Holly Sonders, who according to him makes him “feel like King Kong.”

Via Boxing Scene:

“I can’t imagine myself in the ring anymore. I’m hanging up the gloves for sure and calling it a day,” De La Hoya told BoxingScene.com in an interview.

“It’s not likely [I will fight again]. I’m not feeling it. I went through so much in training. I was on it. When I trained, I left everything and my focus was 100%. It just drained me. I couldn’t handle it. Once I got COVID, I still have problems breathing when I’m running.”

In November, De La Hoya said he planned on resuming training in January, but he ultimately had a change of heart.

De La Hoya credited his developing relationship with girlfriend Holly Sonders as one of the reasons he no longer seeks refuge via boxing.

“I feel complete now. I have six projects aside from boxing that I’m working on right now that are huge – mega. I’ve refocused. I have the energy. I have a woman by my side who makes me feel like King Kong,” said De La Hoya. “It’s motivating. It really is. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen with Golden Boy and my personal brand. Things are moving in the right direction. I’m really excited about it.”

Who needs CTE when you have the companionship of a beautiful lady like Holly Sonders.

Not exactly sure what the King Kong reference is referring to other than what’s going on in between the sheets.
