Boxing Legend Oscar De La Hoya is considering a run for the office of President of the United States, according to TMZ.
The Montebello, CA native was on TMZ the other day and he said that he plans to pursue a bid for President. He claims that he’s in the process of putting together an exploratory committee for a potential bid.
“I am actually very, very serious and I strongly feel that if a Kanye West can do it and announce and maybe tease the world that he would maybe one day wanna run for president, why not me?”

De La Hoya says that if the exploratory committee comes back with favorable numbers, he will begin his campaign for President.
Commentary: I am very interested in seeing what De La Hoya’s team comes up with. I think it could be interesting to see a Reality Star take on a boxing legend and promoter.
