Boxer Oscar De La Hoya is in talks to buy a 50% stake in the MLS champion, Houston Dynamo. While the Golden Boy has sure had his successes in the ring, he is making quite a name for himself in the business world as well through his company, Golden Boy Entertainment. His company owns boxing and wrestling publications that he bought from Kappa Publishing Group this past September. Among the magazines he now oversees are the popular boxing reads, The Ring Magazine and KO Magazine. De La Hoya's company is in talks with the Dynamo's investor-operator Anschutz Entertainment Group and a deal is eminent and expected to be reached on Friday when the two groups meet.
