Boasting a 29-0 record with 23 KOs, Valdez has several highlight-reel moments in his professional boxing career. Furthermore, his charismatic persona has grabbed a lot of attention from non-fight fans. Hence, the nearing NFT drop would allow all the fans to witness Oscar Valdez in a never-seen-before form.

Meanwhile, Blockchayn Labs have also got Oleksandr Usyk on board. Just before Valdez’s announcement, Usyk also claimed that he will drop his NFT soon in association with the same organization. So, it would bring back-to-back collections from two of the best boxers of the era to the fight fans.

That said, the Mexican boxer, Oscar Valdez, has also received his next fight date. According to Box Rec, the Top Rank fighter will defend his WBC belt on September 10 in Arizona, USA.

Oscar Valdez- The knockout machine

As of now, the highly active and dominant Mexican superstar is on a three-KO win streak. He appears to be on a tear and is rightly a problem for several other contenders in the division.

Hailing from Bob Arum‘s Top Rank, Oscar Valdez trains at Eddy Reynoso’s gym. Hence, he shares the ring with other elites like Canelo Alvarez, Ryan Garcia, Andy Ruiz Jr, and many more. Valdez, already an A-lister, still has a lot to prove in the sport. But he is making pretty big moves and has already surpassed many of his seniors in the race to stardom.

Do you think Oscar Valdez will go down as one of the pound-for-pound greatest fighters in the sport?
