Viewers said he was ‘unbelievable’

After The Zebra was eliminated on The Masked Dancer, the contestant was unmasked as he was revealed to be the 48-year-old boxer.

Once his identity was shared, Oscar said: “This is the best experience I’ve ever had. But it was a lot harder than boxing.”

He added that his time on the show was a tribute to his late mother, explaining: “In the clue package, I honored my mother. She passed away right before the Olympic Games and I honored her.”

Oscar previously represented the United States of America during the 1992 Summer Olympics, while he professionally competed as a boxer from 1992-2008.

He won 11 world titled in six weight classes throughout his impressive career.
