Former six-division champion Oscar De La Hoya checked himself into a rehabilitation clinic in California.

TMZ first reported the news on Saturday. It's unclear when De La Hoya checked himself in and for what substance.

"After doing an honest evaluation of myself, I recognize that there are certain issues that I need to work on," De La Hoya said in a statement. "Like everyone, I have my flaws, and I do not want to be one of those people that is afraid to admit and address those flaws."
