Oscar De La Hoya Menjadi Penduduk Las Vegas, Menyertai Arkib

Oscar De La Hoya akan menyertai bekas saingan tinjunya, Floyd Mayweather, sebagai penduduk Las Vegas. Bekas juara, yang kini menetap di Los Angeles, sedang membina sebuah rumah agam di komuniti MacDonald Highlands, 17 batu di tenggara Las Vegas Strip.

Rumah De La Hoya seluas 10,460 kaki persegi dijadualkan siap tahun depan. Rekod hartanah Clark County menunjukkan bahawa juara itu membayar wang  tunai $14.6M kepada pembinanya yang berpangkalan di Las Vegas, Blue Heron Toto SGP Homes. Menurut Forbes, De La Hoya memperoleh $500 juta semasa kerjayanya 39-6-0, dan pada masa ini bernilai $200 juta.

Like Mayweather, De La Hoya has entered a second career as a boxing promoter. And, as boxing promoters, it makes sense for both of them to reside in Las  Vegas. However, is it possible De La Hoya purposefully chose this exclusive hillside Henderson enclave for its considerable distance from Mayweather’s home?

With sweeping views of the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding mountains, De La Hoya’s sprawling one-story home will boast five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two powder rooms, and an eight-car garage. According to the listing that described the property as having a “statement entrance with a water feature and Result Sidney porte-cochere with a modern twist,” it will feature 8,051 square feet of sleek, glass-walled interior space and 2,409 square feet of exterior space.

You can be relatively certain it will also eventually feature a boxing ring.

Will They Run Into Each Other?

Mayweather lives about as far away from MacDonald Highlands as it’s possible to live and still be in the Las Vegas Valley – nearly 30 miles. So, unfortunately for their neighbors, they will probably never get to witness the two former foes accidentally running into each other at the local Starbucks.

Mayweather paid $10M for a 16,357-square-foot mansion in Queensridge, in the northwest valley, in 2018.

Mayweather became a boxing superstar by beating the heavily favored De La Hoya by a split decision on May 5, 2007, at the MGM Grand. The two have maintained an intense professional rivalry since. (Not to stir that rivalry up again, but Celebritynetworth lists Mayweather’s assets at $450M and his earnings, during his superior 50-0-0 career, as an astounding $1.1B – yes, “B.”)

The two former rivals seem to have hung up the gloves with each other, though. Last year, De La Hoya told Fighthype.com: “We fought each other, and there’s this bad blood, but that’s in the past. I definitely feel that I beat him, but with all of that bad blood and animosity, let’s just hold. Recently, just several months ago, I literally wished him all the best.”

De La Hoya berkata, kedua-duanya mungkin bekerjasama dengan hasrat Mayweather sebelum ini untuk membawa pasukan NBA ke Las Vegas.

“Mungkin kami boleh bergabung dan menjadi kuasa besar di sana dan membantu Totobet Hongkong membawa pasukan ke rumah yang kami bina,” kata De La Hoya. “Kami membina  Las Vegas – secara literal [dengan pergaduhan kami sepanjang tahun].”

Jangan Lupa Tentang ‘Iron Mike’
Walaupun dia tidak lagi aktif dalam permainan tinju, bekas juara heavyweight “Iron Mike” Tyson juga merupakan penduduk lama Vegas yang berkecimpung dalam promosi tinju, dan yang sering dilihat di sekitar bandar.

Tyson, yang memperoleh pendapatan $400 juta yang dilaporkan sepanjang karier legendanya, tinggal di ladang enam bilik tidur seluas 10,400 kaki persegi di kawasan kejiranan Seven Hills Henderson yang dibelinya dengan harga $2.5 juta pada 2015, menurut New York Post.
