Oscar Valdez ranks among the biggest names of the super-featherweight division today. With his out-of-the-box prowess and fight IQ, the WBC 130-pound champion has overpowered every opponent he’s faced until now. Valdez is one of the most hard-working technicians of the game and after becoming the champ, he’s immersed himself in even more draining preparations and workouts.

Recently, Fight Hub TV released a training video of the Mexican. Here, Valdez is seen working out extensively on his legs and abs. In this training regime, Valdez pushed his limits to carve his best version.

In his last fight, the Sonora native completely battered Miguel Berchelt. This was Valdez‘s first shot towards the WBC super-featherweight gold, and nobody expected him to fare in such a thunderous manner.

The 30-year-old went toe to toe against Berchelt and didn’t let him win a single second of the fight. In fact, he left the fans staggered by displaying his oppressing approach against his fellow adversary. As a result, Berchelt couldn’t stand and face the heat coming off Valdez’s hands. And the fight concluded in round 10.

With that cracking victory, the WBC champ put a cosmic statement in the 130-pound roster. Moreover, he set himself up for even bigger opponents/fights.

Who should Oscar Valdez face in his comeback fight?

Ever since Valdez put on a clinical performance in his last fight, the only bout that fans want to see him take on next is against Shakur Stevenson.

Stevenson is a fellow undefeated prospect in the super-featherweight roster, who’s going super strong with his boxing stint. Both Valdez and Stevenson have expressed their interest in taking each other on.

But the American boxer is currently lined up for a fight against Jeremiah Nakathila for the interim WBO super-featherweight strap. If ‘Fearless’ bags the interim belt in his next fight, needless to say, the probabilities of him facing Valdez next are supremely high.

That said, this matchup has already sent shock waves in the fight world. And it’ll be interesting to see if this pair steps inside the ring for a 12-round war against each other.

Do you envision a fight between Valdez and Stevenson for late 2021?
