It's all over for Oscar De La Hoya on December 6 of this year. That is the date being reserved for De La hoya's farewell fight on HBO Pay Per View. Richard Schaefer the CEO for De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions has confirmed the date to ESPN.

The fight will be held in Los Angeles or Las Vegas, and Schaefer tells ESPN: "This will be Oscar's career finale, and we want to make it a big, big event."

Although a challenger for De La Hoya's last bout is yet to be determined, Schaefer indicated that a fight with Miguel Cotto is a possibility if Cotto can get past his next challenge on July 26 when he faces off against Antonio Margarito.

Schaefer also indicated that De La Hoya won't be fighting Ricky Hatton.
