8: Oscar De La Hoya - Houston Dynamo

The former boxing ‘Golden Boy’ has been a keen businessman for a long time.

His Golden Boy Promotions went in to buy a stake in the MLS franchise back in 2007 and succeeded.

Since then the team has grown and he’s fulfilled his promise to help find a stadium specifically for the team by building a new one and paying half the costs.

The team look to be on the up and with the MLS growing, it appears his promotions interest will be dynamite business... Dynamite? Dynamo? Oh, forget it.
