Oscar De La Hoya to be inducted into International Boxing Hall of Fame

Oscar De La Hoya of East Los Angeles will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame on June 8, the Associated Press reported. De La Hoya won world titles in six weight classes and compiled a record of 39-6 with 30 knockouts from 1992-2008.

Also to be enshrined in Canastota, N.Y. are Felix Trinidad Jr. and Joe Calzaghe. Trinidad won a somewhat controversial majority decision over De La Hoya in a welterweight title unification bout in 1999 in Las Vegas. Trinidad, of Puerto Rico, had a record of 42-3 with 35 knockouts.

Calzaghe, of Wales, finished undefeated at 46-0 with 32 knockouts. He was a super middleweight champion from 1997-2007.
