Puerto Rican heavyweight standout Fres “The Big O” Oquendo has signed a promotional agreement with DRL Promotions. The up-and-coming boxing promotional company, perhaps best known for its connection to legend and former world champion Roberto Duran, announced the newest addition to its fight roster today with great enthusiasm.
Oquendo, who recently lost a controversial and hard-fought twelve-round decision to Evander Holyfield, boasts a successful 26-4 (16 KO) record at the age of 33, including earning the WBO Latino Heavyweight title, WBA Federation Heavyweight title, and NABF Heavyweight title. DRL’s Director of Boxing Luis DeCubas says Oquendo got robbed in the Holyfield decision and has proven himself to be the real McCoy: “We couldn’t be happier to add Fres to our team. He always comes to fight, and I predict he will again be a player to contend with in the wide open heavyweight division.”
