Boxing legend, businessman and philanthropist Oscar De La Hoya will kick off the SPORTELSummit 2018 as the keynote speaker May 15 at 11:00 am at the W South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida.


The invitation-only SPORTELSummit unites an exclusive circle of decision makers from the international sports marketing and media industries that shape the business for tomorrow.

“I am honoured to announce the legendary Oscar de la Hoya will join us for an exclusive keynote, as part of the prestigious line up at the first SPORTEL Summit”, said Laurent Puons, SPORTEL CEO.

“His outstanding achievements in the world of boxing, transitioning from one of the greatest fighters to esteemed business executive and hugely successful promoter, make him an elite reference within the international sports industry, exemplifying the visionary thought-leadership of the Summit.”

As the keynote for SPORTELSummit 2018, De La Hoya will share his insights from his decades of fighting, from winning the Gold medal at the ’92 Barcelona Summer Olympics to reaching the top of boxing’s professional ranks as one of the best fighters in recent history.

De La Hoya transitioned successfully from fighting upon retiring in 2009 to lead his company, Golden Boy Promotions, as one of boxing’s best and most respected promoters around the world. De La Hoya has been at the forefront of moving the sport of boxing into the digital age, having launched Golden Boy Media and Entertainment in 2015, a new division of his company devoted to live streaming and delivering engaging, timely content on the sport to online audiences around the world.

“As a former professional athlete turned international businessman, I’m looking forward to keynoting at the SPORTELSummit 2018, among an exclusive group of individuals leading sports business and marketing into the next era,” said De La Hoya. “I’ve had the opportunity to be part of some of the biggest sporting events in recent history, whether as the athlete or promoter on the business side, and I look forward to sharing my experiences from those opportunities with other decision makers in the sports business world in Miami Beach next year.”
