We all have our demons and how we go about conquering them is between ourselves and our own conscience.

Most of the time the process goes on in private but when your face is one of the most famous in the sport, you?re not afforded such liberties.

This weekend, when Floyd Mayweather Junior takes on Saul ?Canelo? Alvarez in Las Vegas, the famous face of Oscar De La Hoya will be absent from ringside.

The face of Golden Boy Promotions has voluntarily gone into a rehabilitation centre to assist with his alcohol problems.

Talking about this weekend, De La Hoya has remarked to the media,

?Canelo Alvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is in the ring and mine in treatment.?

Our best wishes go to Oscar and we wish him well in his battle with his own demons.
