Olympic Gold Medalist Oscar De La Hoya is one of the greatest boxers of all time and even though he's retired, he recently showed that he still has some of his natural gifts.

De La Hoya, known for his wicked left hook, reach and fast hand speed, hasn't lost too much.

De La Hoya retired after getting knocked out by the rising Manny Pacquiao. He won 10 world titles in six different weight divisions and retired with a record of 39-6. De La Hoya was also one of boxing's biggest PPV draws, drawing on par with heavyweight king Mike Tyson. With his boyish smile, Hollywood good looks and articulate speech, De La Hoya emerged as one of boxing's big mainstream stars and is now a successful boxing promoter to the next generation of fighters.

Here's the 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist in his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., a fight that many people believe De La Hoya won, despite the decision going Mayweather's way.
