Oscar De Lay Hoya was released from the hospital following a battle with COVID-19.
The boxer said he was hospitalized for three days.
"COVID hit me really hard," De La Hoya said on Twitter.
De La Hoya was forced to cancel his fight with MMA fighter Vitor Belfort on Sept. 11 due to the virus, which he said he caught despite being vaccinated.
"I was in the best shape of my life and I really can't wait to get back in the ring," De La Hoya said.
The Hall of Fame boxer has not fought since 2008.
Hey guys, I am out of the hospital. I was in there for 3 days. COVID hit me really hard. I was in the best shape of my life and I really can't wait to get back in the ring. Thank you very much for all your well wishes and all your support. I appreciate it. pic.twitter.com/9XIKfKpDf6
