Holly Sonders and pro-boxer Oscar De La Hoya have had a long-standing relationship. Last week, the former Fox Sports broadcaster shared the photo of a huge tattoo of De La Hoya on her back on Instagram, along with a message expressing her admiration for the 48-year-old fighter. Holly Sonders showed off her new tattoo in a close-up shot as well.
The tattoo, which was done by De La Hoya's brother-in-law Esteban Camacho, symbolizes his transformation into 'The Golden Boy' after winning Olympic gold in the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona, Spain.

"Dear Oscar," Sonders wrote on Instagram, “You have everything in life, there is nothing I can give you that you haven’t received already…except for this. This tattoo signifies the day you became The Golden Boy. The moment you won the gold medal at the 1992 Olympics and looked up at your mother who had passed a few months prior.”
“There was no question that I wanted it to be your sisters’ husband @tattooesteban,” she said, “I love you @oscardelahoya.” De La Hoya, who won 11 titles in six weight classes and now works as a promoter, was overjoyed to receive this present.
“It actually tops everything that I’ve ever been given. Who can top this?” According to TMZ, De La Hoya recently stated. “I’ve been given everything you could possibly imagine. And a tattoo, a beautiful portrait of me looking up at the sky to my mother. The Olympic Games were just incredible.”
TMZ Sports spoke with the boxing legend and his celebrity girlfriend and inquired about the tattoo. TMZ asked Sonders as to what made Holly go out and acquire the ink, which she claims took her 2.5 hours to complete.
Sonders replied that she did not get the tattoo for any specific reason, but rather as a sign of devotion. She told TMZ, "There was no cause for it. I have three tattoos on my body. For a long time, I've wished for a fourth." In August, the pair made their first public appearance together. Sonders may be familiar to you from her days as a reporter on the Golf Channel or Fox Sports. She has also worked as a hostess at Ballys, where she met De La Hoya in June.
De La Hoya, who retired from boxing in 2009, was scheduled to face Vitor Belfort in September this year. However, the boxer contracted Covid-19 before the bout could take place, and it had to be cancelled.
