Oscar De La Hoya talks about substance abuse, infidelity

(CBS) In an interview with Univision's "Aqui y Ahora," retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya tells interviewer Teresa Rodriguez about his drug and alcohol abuse and about cheating on his wife.

"Rock bottom was recently," says De La Hoya. "Within a couple years, just thinking is my life even worth it? I don't have the strength, I don't have the courage to take my own life. But I was thinking about it."

De La Hoya says his drugs of choice were alcohol and cocaine and that after getting out of rehab, he has been attending meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Later in the interview, he says he was unfaithful. "We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here. But I was unfaithful."

When De La Hoya, 38, retired, he had a 39-6 professional record with 30 knockouts.
