HBO Sports Extends De La Hoya Deal


Evidently pleased as punch with the first five editions, HBO Sports has
extended its relationship with boxer Oscar De La Hoya's promotion company for
more fight cards.

The monthly series, Oscar De La Hoya Presenta Boxeo de Oro, which
premieres Thursday nights on HBO Latino, will return with a full complement of
dates in 2004.

"We're delighted to announce that Oscar De La Hoya Presenta Boxeo de
has been renewed for 2004 on HBO Latino," HBO Sports president Ross
Greenburg said in a prepared statement.

"Often times in boxing, you have to make hard, difficult decisions," he
added. "This was not one of those times. We are excited to work with Golden Boy
Promotions on this successful series."
