Ahead of Christmas, Oscar De La Hoya took the internet by storm in a viral video. De La Hoya, 49 and bare-bodied, was seen doing some shadow boxing, exposing his jacked and vigorous physique. The ‘Golden Boy’ was seen carrying some envious and hard abs, even at age 49. Following his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2008, he retired from professional boxing. Although De La Hoya flexed in this recent video, some fans could not help but trace something irregular about his current physique.

De La Hoya exhibited ripped eight-pack abs on his body. In addition, he compared them to a packet of King’s Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls. Despite Oscar’s enthusiasm, fans felt there was something wrong since De La Hoya did not look that ripped during his prime.
