Jonathan Oquendo Returns To Golden Boy Promotions

Fresh off one of the biggest wins of his career over former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez on September 12, Puerto Rican star Jonathan "Polvo" Oquendo (26-4, 16 KOs) has returned to Golden Boy Promotions as he pursues his first world championship.
 
"We've had a long relationship with Jonathan and are thrilled to welcome him back as he continues his journey to becoming a world champion," said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "Jonathan's win over Jhonny Gonzalez showed just how dangerous he is to all titleholders at 126 and 130 pounds. Talent and experience are both crucially important at this level, and Jonathan has both."
 
"Golden Boy Promotions has always been fair with me and they've given me all the opportunities I've hoped for over the years," said Jonathan Oquendo. "They are family and I am glad to have them on my side as I look to continue my dream to become a world champion."
 
Currently ranked 11th in the world at featherweight by the IBF and 12th at super featherweight by the WBO, the 32-year-old Oquendo is a former WBO Latino and NABO champion at 122 pounds. The current interim WBO Latino Featherweight Titleholder was the first Puerto Rico native signed to the Golden Boy Promotions roster. Winner of four of his last five bouts, Oquendo won an exciting 10-round decision over Gonzalez on the Mayweather vs. Berto undercard in Las Vegas, and the victory has motivated the Vega Alta native to get back in the ring as soon as possible and work his way to a world title fight.
