imageBig win for Oscar De La Hoya[1] ... the boxing legend's DUI case has officially been dismissed, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... Oscar was pulled over[2] for speeding in Pasadena around 2 AM on Jan 25, 2017 -- and when officers approached his vehicle, they believed he was under the influence. 

Cops say Oscar also bombed a field sobriety test. He was charged with 2 counts[3] of misdemeanor DUI -- but pled not guilty to both. 

Oscar's attorney later filed a motion to dismiss the case and on Jan. 9, it was granted by a judge -- which means he's out of the woods. 

It's a big deal considering Oscar was facing up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
