Knockout! Oscar De La Hoya’s impressive net worth is thanks to his lengthy career in boxing — and it’s higher than his ex-girlfriend Shanna Moakler’s. The retired boxer has a net worth of $200 million, a stark difference from Shanna’s $15 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Oscar made headlines in December 2021 when he reacted to Shanna’s ex Travis Barker’s (whose net worth is $50 million) close bond with his daughter, Atiana Cecilia De La Hoya. Oscar and Shanna welcomed Atiana in 1999, just one year before the couple called it quits in 2000. The former Miss USA later moved on with the Blink-182 drummer, marrying him in 2004 then divorcing him in 2008.
“How do you feel about Travis claiming he raised your daughter?” a social media user asked the mixed martial arts promoter in an Instagram Q&A on December 1.
“I have nothing but respect for my man @travisbarker,” the former boxer replied.
Although Travis did not outwardly say he raised Atiana as the Instagram user claimed, he and Oscar’s daughter still have a positive relationship. She has shown support for Travis’ new fiancée, Kourtney Kardashian, as their relationship grew more serious throughout the year.
