The undefeated WBO world featherweight champion, Oscar Valdez recorded the 24 victory of his professional career last night at The StubHub Center in California.
He recorded that victory up against arguably the sternest test he had faced so far in the form of Bury local, Scott Quigg.
The judges verdict came in unanimous famous with Valdez getting the nod on all three cards by scores of 117-111, 117-111 and 118-110.
There was much controversy coming into the fight with Quigg coming in over the 126 lbs featherweight limit by an additional 2.8 lbs. Since the fight, Quigg has highlighted that a foot injury did not allow him to shed the last few pounds and come into the fight as he would have liked.
The action of the fight’s opening stanza saw it made readily apparent that Valdez was the superior fighter technically as he was able to look fluid and natural and he managed to land a few thudding power punches as the action heated up.
