Heavyweight veteran Fres Oquendo (35-7, 23KOs), 39-years-old, returns on February 15th at the Horseshow Casino in Hammond, Indiana. After bein in active in 2011, Oquendo stepped in the ring three times in 2012. He defeated heavyweight trialhorse Travis Fulton by way of a second round disqualification in March, then came back in May to stop veteran Joey Abell in the ninth round, and then put away Robert Hawksin in seven rounds.

Oquendo should cash out against a good up-and-coming heavyweight like Tyson Fury, Bryant Jennings, Vyacheslav Glazkov, Deontay Wilder, or David Price. I'd like to see the up-and-comers take out the trash from the heavyweight division.
