The article profiles Oscar De La Hoya, a heavyweight boxer who already brought a gold medal to the U.S. at the age of 20. It recounts the forecast of heavyweight champion George Foreman that De La Hoya will be the future of boxing as the latter became more than just a 10-time champion in six weight divisions. De La Hoya always shows fascination in the sport and aimed for victory. His victory over Marco Rudolph at the 1992 Olympic Games in Spain is considered the turning point of his career.
