Oscar De La Hoya saw the funny side as a fan drew on abdominal muscles in honor of recent stories regarding his washboard stomach.
The Golden Boy promoter faced heat on social media after many claimed he had his abs surgically enhanced as he approaches his 50s.
Oscar De La Hoya abdominal implants
De La Hoya has never confirmed this is the case. However, he’s not shy about smiling about the rumors of using etching or implants to boost his look.
He certainly took it in good jest as the fan drew abs on with a Sharpie at the Alexis Rocha media workout.
The eleven-time world champion seems to be at his amusing best as he gears up for a busy few months in his promotional capacity.
