The attorney for the boxer comments on photos that appeared on the internet.

OSCAR DE LA HOYA's attorney has released a statement to ET regarding photos that surfaced on the Internet appearing to depict the boxer in a fishnet bodysuit and high heels wearing red boxing gloves.

The statement reads: "The photographs depicting Mr. De La Hoya's image that were posted online today by an obscure paparazzi Web site are fake. Many of the Web site's viewers (as reflected in postings on the site) identified the photos as 'a really bad photoshop job.' Unfortunately, with today's technology, anyone can make any photo seem like something other than it is.

"Mr. De la Hoya, through his attorneys, has demanded in writing that the images be removed from the Web site.

"Mr. De La Hoya has become one of the most recognizable faces in America, not only for his achievements in the boxing ring, but also for his charitable work in developing hospital facilities and schools in the East Los Angeles neighborhood where he grew up. It is regrettable that the price of fame that comes to Mr. De La Hoya and others carries with it the possibility that outsiders will nevertheless seek to exploit that fame for their own profit."
