Born into a boxing family, the son of Mexican-born parents, Oscar "the Golden Boy" De La Hoya has lived the American Dream-achieving unparalleled success in everything from athletics to business, from the recording industry to numerous charitable ventures. The winner of six world titles and an Olympic gold medal, he has defeated more than a dozen world champions and has left a positive mark on the sport of boxing, inspiring many who had all but given up hope.

American Son is his story-a quintessentially American story-a frank, touching, and revealing memoir from one of the most celebrated fighters in the history of boxing. It is the thrilling tale of an immigrant's son-the chronicle of an amazing life's journey that offers new insight into the private world and remarkable career of a gentleman, an athlete, and a true national icon.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"De La Hoya's memoir reads fast and well. It reveals a man who is capable of far deeper sincerity than the "Golden Boy" who graces the podium at press conferences." -- CBS Sports
"This memoir, his first literary glance in the rearview mirror, is a revealing and solid read." -- Los Angeles Times
"An inspiring and motivating title ..., an entertaining description of the ins and outs of a boxing career, and a fascinating insight into a Latino hero." -- Criticas Magazine
