Fres Oquendo Fires Back At Odlanier Solis

“My time is now” is how Oquendo answered back to Odlanier Solis and his response to the Cuban Gold Medallist's claim that Oquendo is not in his league. “I'm happy to be judged by my last performance. I beat the c*** out of one of the best fighters in the sport on a weeks notice. He (Solis) barely stopped one of my sparring partners. I fight at 217 to 223 he is 260 lbs after fighting at 200. He was a great amateur, and a bust as a pro. I was willing to fight him in mini Cuba for peanuts, he chickened out. I trained my ass off, he ate tostones” fired Oquendo. “I fought the best fighters of my time as early as last December and never ducked anybody” continued the former NABF champ and 2 time title contender who has been in there with the likes of, Duncan Dokiwari, Bert Cooper, David Tua, John Ruiz, Black Rhino, Evander Holyfield and James Toney.” Oquendo?s decision losses all have been controversial as was his stoppage to Ruiz..

“I?m sick of all theses so called Heavyweights yakking their big fat mouths about how great they are and how they deserve a chance to fight champions. They are pretenders not contenders. Actions speak louder than words. I had my chances and won but I was cheated. Not once, several times. I beat Byrd, I beat Holyfield, I beat Toney I was even beating Ruiz until they stopped it. I never even went down,” continued Oquendo.” “I took David Tua?s best shots and never went down. He knocked out 2 world champions in a less than a minute. And I dominated him for 9 and a half rounds. I fought Holyfield sick with a 103 fever and strep throat. Brewster, Thompson, Solis all chickened out of fights. So The Cuban Coward could talk all he wants. I showed up in Miami to fight him and he didn?t. Hell, I?ll be there Friday night still ready to fight him or anyone else.” Oquendo ended with his own question. “Does that answer your question Odlanier?”
