Back in 2007, X17online exclusively obtained photos of De La Hoya dressed in women's underwear and stockings taken by a stripper, not his wife Millie Corretjer.

The 34-year-old boxer, who married Corretjer on Oct. 5, 2001, admits to being unfaithful. He adds, "We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful."

De La Hoya, who retired from boxing back in 2009, says he has been sober for three months. The championship fighter reveals:

    "Rock bottom was recently. 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.''

As for which drugs he abused, the boxer also admits:

    "My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol, hmm. Cocaine was recent, the last two years, last 2-1/2 years, and I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine."

Oscar's mom died of breast cancer back in 1990. He says drugs helped him cope.

    ''It took me to a place where I felt safe. It took me to a place where I felt as if nobody can say anything to me. It took me to a place where I just can reach out and grab my mom.''
