That's what I read too. Not only that but it was Valero that gave Oscar a black eye during sparring. Later Oscar would lie and say it was Victor Ortiz. Obviously because he was promoting him.
To me Valero was a guy who fought down to the level of his opponents. It's the reason why he really didn't look to skilled because his opposition wasn't either. It wasn't until the Demarco fight that I actually witness him use footwork and head movement. Who know? If the had fought a top caliber fighter he may have shown some other talents that no one expected him to have. Cuz from all the stories I read about this guy was a killer when it came to sparring.
