The Greatest Left-Handed Athletes in Sports History

23. Oscar De La Hoya

De La Hoya was so talented in the boxing ring that he could turn a left-handed jab into a devastating hook within the blink of an eye. The Hall of Famer, known as “The Golden Boy,” won gold at the 1992 Olympics. From there, his mighty left hand, out of an orthodox stance, led to 11 world titles spanning six different weight classes during a stellar professional boxing career which lasted more than 15 years. Of De La Hoya’s 39 pro wins, 30 came via knockout.
