6. Oscar De La Hoya

HOMETOWN: East Los Angeles
RECORD: 39-6-0 (30 KOs)
COMPLEX SAYS: OK, so the The Golden Boy isn't Mexican-born, but no one has done as much for Mexican culture in boxing as Oscar De La Hoya. After bursting onto the scene in 1992, De La Hoya went on to win 10 world titles in six different weight classes. His pay-per-view bouts, such as this one versus Fernando Vargas, earned $696 million, which is more money than any other boxer in history. Since retirement, he's created Golden Boy Promotions, one of the premier promotion firms in the sport. Still earning millions without the constant blows to the dome (II)? Yup, that's a win.
