Oscar will be calling ...
I just got off the telephone with Oscar De La Hoya's secretary, Nicole Becerra, who said the former 10-time world champion boxer will be calling here soon to talk about his future and other topics.
To be candid, I started writing his retirement story this morning, despite De La Hoya's business partner at Golden Boy Promotions, Richard Schaefer, telling me this week, "I'd have two stories ready: One that he's going to retire and another saying he'll fight again. I don't know what he's going to do."
I'm hearing De La Hoya is similarly still on the fence, but he should be calling any minute and we'll let you know what he says here at the Fabulous Forum and latimes.com/sports.
