Oscar Valdez Back on 4/12 in Bradley-Pacquiao 2 Prelim

by David P. Greisman

Featherweight/junior lightweight Oscar Valdez, fresh off his March 1 win over Samuel Sanchez, will fight in a preliminary bout underneath the April 12 pay-per-view rematch between Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao.

That’s according to the Twitter account for the Espinoza Boxing Club, which manages Valdez.

The televised undercard bouts on April 12 will be a lightweight bout between Raymundo Beltran and Roman Martinez; a junior welterweight bout between Khabib Allakhverdiev and Jessie Vargas; and a junior lightweight bout between Bryan Vasquez and Jose Felix Jr.

Valdez, 23, represented Mexico in the 2008 Olympics, where he competed as a bantamweight and lost in the opening round of the tournament; and in the 2012 Olympics, where he again competed as a bantamweight and this time made it to the quarterfinals.

He officially turned pro in November 2012, though he also had fought once in 2010 in the World Series of Boxing. If you include that in his record, he is 10-0 with 9 knockouts.

Thats right the NBT (Next Big Thing) Erick DeLeon from Detroit, MI is the one that needs to be pushed and get more exposure. He's the one thats going to be a future champion guaranteed. Anyone can look him up,…
