By Rey Colon

Jonathan Oquendo, ranked first under WBO at 122-pounds, continues his physical and mental recovery after tragic accident while driving an ATV. The crash killed his girlfriend and the boxer is facing potential criminal charges related to the use of the vehicle. His coach, Dennis Pantoja, indicating that the boxer is even doing sparring and is only waiting for the outcome of his upcoming court date on June 12th.

"Jonathan, thank God, has been recovering. He's been sparring and waiting for the case on June 12, to see what happens because he wants to know what will happen to his career. It's all subject to what happens on the 12th," Pantoja said.

Oquendo (22-2, 15 KO's) was supposed to fight on March 10 on the undercard where Orlando Salido retained the WBO featherweight crown by knocking out Juan Manuel Lopez at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum - but he suffered serious injuries during the accident and withdrew.
