And moments into his interview, it became apparent the Olympian wasn’t completely sound of mind.
De La Hoya slurred his words at times and repeated himself on several occasions.
And viewers of the broadcast were quick to share their worries for the six-weight world champion, who had previously admitted to substance abuse.
One said: “Oscar De La Hoya looks like he’s been partying before and during this entire show.”
Another boxing said: “This is a train wreck with Oscar De La Hoya.
And another said: “They need to get Oscar De La Hoya off the mic.”
One remarked: “What in God’s name happened to the classy Oscar De La Hoya? Sounds drunk af.”
De La Hoya, 48, is gearing up for a return to the ring in the summer – 14 years after hanging up his gloves.
When asked about his July 3 comeback, De La Hoya said: “You can expect a f***ing real fight. A real fight.
“Whoever I pick to be my opponent. You bet your ass that I’m gonna be the best motherf****r out there.
