Oquendo Claims Talks are Ongoing For Wladimir Klitschko

By Rey Colon

Puerto Rican heavyweight Fres Oquendo (35-7 and 23 KO's) stated that discussions are ongoing for a fight against IBO/WBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (50 KOs and a 59-3 record) on April 6th in Hanover. There had been mentions of Wladimir facing Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis, but the Cuban's promoter says the negotiations fell apart.

"They wanted to give the opportunity to Solis. He is not tested but I am. My manager is working on that and it is possible that in the end I could face Wladimir on April 6. I am training to get in the best condition to take his head off," Oquendo said.

"He saw me sparring with his brother Vitali, when he was preparing for the fight with Tomasz Adamek, and I was putting my hands on him. And maybe that is why [he wasn't giving me the opportunity]. But we hope that we can get the fight for April 6."
