Fres Oquendo Inching Up The Rankings To WBA Shot

By Rey Colon

Veteran heavyweight contender Fres "Fast Fres" Oquendo (35-7, 23 KO's), who won all three of his three fights in 2012, including one where he captured the vacant WBA Fedelatin championship, will be elevated from the 14th position to a top ten ranking. The WBA is going to place him at number 9 - and that manuever will further motivate the Puerto Rican boxer to pursue another title shot.

Oquendo lost in his bid for a title in 2003, when he dropped a controversial decision to IBF champion Chris Byrd, and in 2004 he was stopped in eleven rounds by ten WBA champion John Ruiz.

In his latest fight, he stopped Robert Hawkins in seven rounds.
