Edwin Valero Wants The Big Names at 135-Pounds

By Mark Vester

On the shelf since his June battering of Japan's Takehiro Shimada, Edwin Valero is looking for much bigger fights at the lightweight limit of 135-pounds. He recently vacated his WBA super featherweight title, citing weight issues in his August 31 letter that was sent over to the sanctioning body.

“Without your support and understanding I would never have my career as a fighter and status that I have today,” Valero said. “On my last fight I suffered very much to make weight. I cannot continue fighting at super featherweight division anymore.”

There have been reports in some of the Panama press that Valero could challenge the winner of the WBC eliminator between Antonio Pitalua and Jose Armando Santa Cruz, set for September 20 in Mexico. Though, a few months ago Valero told MaxBoxing's Doug Fischer that he would take a big fight at lightweight in a minute, including a fight with the current WBA/WBC/WBO champ Nate Campbell.

“I’d do it immediately to fight Pacquiao or Marquez or Nate Campbell," Valero said. “From what I saw in his fight with Juan Diaz, he’s a man with a lot of heart and stamina. We would make for a great fight because I have a lot of heart and stamina, and we don’t give up so easy.”
