This also sparked speculation among fans who were quick to give their opinion on his physique. Moreover, many even claimed that De La Hoya had abs surgically implanted which was later confirmed by De La Hoya himself. Despite ‘Golden Boy’ coming out clean about his abs, former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold was quick to troll De La Hoya’s fake abs.

In a recent episode of his podcast along with guest Belal Muhammad, Rogan commented on De La Hoya’s abs. Moreover, he stated that the former boxer’s arms and chest didn’t match his abs making him look unnatural. “The thing is his abs don’t match his chest or arms. Look how defined his abs are they’re evenly sitting there. It’s like the Liver King, it’s fully tight,” he said.

The Liver King was recently under fire after he was exposed by YouTuber MPMD about his PED usage. In addition, he was forced to issue a public apology after this scandal which might not be the case for De La Hoya as he is very transparent about his abs. Moreover, with him not competing professionally, the decision was entirely up to him.
