LAS VEGAS, NV – Boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya recently picked up his roots and moved from his longtime home of Los Angeles, California, to Las Vegas, and recently held a media event where he publicly unveiled the new residence he and his wife will be inhabiting- a lavish mansion valued at nearly $15 million that is located in Henderson’s affluent MacDonald Highlands community.
Nicknamed “The Golden Boy of boxing,” De La Hoya, 51, competed in the squared circle from 1992 to 2008, winning 11 world titles in six weight classes and is one of the most popular boxers ever, generating approximately $700 million in pay-per-view income during his career, a record at that time.
De La Hoya originally purchased the MacDonald Highlands mansion in May 2022 in an all-cash transaction for $14.6 million, coming in as the priciest Las Vegas transaction that month. The residence, which is still undergoing construction and updating, is located on a 1-acre plot of land and features 10,460 square-feet of living space, with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and an eight-car garage.
De La Hoya is reportedly sparing no expense when it comes to decorating his new abode, building a trophy room that serves as a celebration of his boxing career – including displays featuring his championship belts and robes, a miniature boxing ring, and a huge wall-mounted television for watching boxing matches – in addition to a $500,000 man cave.
Not only is De La Hoya moving his family to Las Vegas from LA, but he’s also moving his business there as well; Golden Boy Promotions, his boxing promotions firm, will be taking up residence in new offices located in Henderson, near the Las Vegas Raiders’ training complex. This move continues the trend of numerous fight entities recently setting up their headquarters in Vegas, including Top Rank, PBC, and the UFC.
