If Oscar De La Hoya was getting a bit jaded from his life as a big-time promoter, last week served as a reality check. The 10-time former world champion is now a USO veteran. De La Hoya along with Golden Boy Promotions prospects Danny Jacobs, Seth Mitchell and Adrian Broner hit the ground in the Middle East on Mar. 8. DLH visited Camp Arifjan, Camp Victory, JSS Loyalty, JSS Justice and Camp Liberty.
"I hope that we were able to make a difference in the lives of the troops we met," De La Hoya said. "I am dedicated to continuing to help the USO with their mission of uplifting the spirits of our nation's troops, sharing my experiences and encouraging others to support our brave servicemen and servicewomen in any way they can."
