After bein in active in 2011, Oquendo stepped in the ring three times in 2012.

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.
