Undefeated WBC super featherweight title holder Oscar Valdez, the battling pride of Nogales, Mexico, has marked another multi-battle limited time concurrence with Top Rank.
WBC super featherweight champion Oscar Valdez's association with Top Rank appears as though it'll proceed for quite a while, as he's "marked another multi-battle limited time understanding" following his profession best win over Miguel Berchelt recently.
Valdez said, “I am proud to be part of the Top Rank family. I want to thank Bob Arum and Todd duBoef for their confidence in my abilities. I will not let them down. I also want to thank my manager, Frank Espinoza, for securing a great deal for me. This is a wonderful moment in my career, and I’m grateful to God for my blessings.”
Valdez’s (29-0, 23 KO) February upset of “El Alacran” remains a frontrunner for “Knockout of the Year” and thoroughly revitalized a career left floundering after several underwhelming performances.
With Valdez, WBO champion Jamel Herring, and former featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson all fighting under the Top Rank banner, the time appeared nigh for some intramural fun. Instead, Valdez appears to be closing in on a fight with Olympic gold medalist turned underwhelming pro Robson Conceicao later this year.
