Oscar De La Hoya at Staples Center
"You have to pinch yourself...I'm still taken aback by it. It's mind-boggling...its such a huge honor.  If we can get 18 to 20 thousand people just to look at the statue as they come into Staples Center...that's what excites me!  That's what gets me going!"
-World Champion Boxer and Olympic Gold Medalist Oscar De La Hoya to Ring Magazine   December 2008
