Super bantamweight contender Jonathan Oquendo (22-2, 15 KOs) said he was satisfied with Saturday's big win in Puerto Rico, where he captured the WBO's Latino title by knocking out Jose Luis Araiza dramatically in two rounds. Oquendo is going to push his promoters, and the WBO, to force an immediate shot at champion Jorge 'Travieso' Arce. Oquendo wants to face Arce in the first three months of 2012.

"I'll fight for the title with either Arce or whoever has the title. I have faith that PR Best Boxing will get me the fight. Puerto Rico will have a new champion. I'm training like never before," he added.

Oquendo has no preference for a title fight, and doesn't rule out a fight with Wilfredo 'Papito' Vazquez - if the once beaten Puerto Rican gets the rematch with Arce.

"I would fight with anyone. What I want is the title. I have nothing against Vazquez. This is a business and the best man will win," he said.

Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing, said Arce has to make his mandatory defense in early 2012, and Oquendo is expected to maintain his first place ranking.
