BOXING legend Oscar De La Hoya is dating stunning TV presenter Holly Sonders.
The American is in training ahead of a sensational ring return when he fights MMA legend Vitor Belfort on September 11.
And things are looking pretty good for the 48-year-old away from the squared circle.
TMZ Sports have revealed that the six-weight former world champ has hooked up with Sonders.
They reportedly met at a boxing event in June, where Sonders interviewed De La Hoya.
Sonders was previously engaged to professional sports gambler 'Vegas Dave'.
De La Hoya married Puerto Rican singer Millie Corretjer on October 5, 2001, and they went on to have three children together.
The pair split in 2016.
Speaking about his training, and his new relationship, De La Hoya told TMZ: "[I'm] healthy, not drinking, no nothing, I’m just with my beautiful woman, Holly.
"And I’m gonna f***ing knock that mother f***** out. You want to f***ing see a real fight? I’m gonna knock that m***** f***** out."

The happy couple were spotted leaving Nobu restaurant in Miami when the boxer confirmed they were an item.
De La Hoya's last pro fight was in 2008 when he was pulled out by his corner at the end of the eighth round against Manny Pacquiao.
Eighteen months earlier, De La Hoya had given the great Floyd Mayweather a real scare when he took his fellow American to the scorecards.
But it was Mayweather who secured a split decision victory.
In 2011, De La Hoya said in a television interview that he had thought about suicide and had been going to rehab because he became dependent on drugs and alcohol.
“Rock bottom was recently,” De La Hoya said during the interview.
“Within a couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it. I don’t have the strength, I don’t have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it.”
De La Hoya confirmed during that time he had been sober for three months after undergoing treatment and joining Alcoholics Anonymous.
