By Mosope Olumide

Former boxing champion Oscar De La Hoya has said that he is considering contesting for the U.S. presidential seat just like American rapper Kanye West so as to add to his collection of titles.

I am actually 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 want to run for president, why not me, I’ve had literally, over the years, ever since I became a professional in boxing, I’ve had millions of people tell me, ‘Look, why don’t you represent? Why don’t you stand up and have a bigger voice?’ And obviously the biggest voice you can have is being president,he said in a video released by TMZ.

The former Olympian who won gold in Barcelona ’92 has been retired from professional boxing since 2009, but has remained heavily involved in the game as a promoter for his company, “Golden Boy Promotions.”

De La Hoya, from East Los Angeles, said if his team brings him some encouraging statistics he would make it official and announce his run and that his comments should be taken with a grain of salt.
