Oscar Valdez Could Be Moved Forward on The Fast Track

By Robert Morales

Featherweight prospect Oscar Valdez, 22-year-old, is now 3-0 with three knockouts after his fourth-round stoppage of Carlos Gonzalez on last Saturday's Timothy Bradley-Ruslan Provodnikov undercard, which took place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

Since Valdez is such a decorated amateur, manager Frank Espinoza intimated we might see him move a little quicker than most do in their pro careers.

"We started off right away with six rounds, we never took a four-round fight because of his amateur experience and being a two-time Olympian," Espinoza said. "We can take him on a fast track. But at the same time, not like tomorrow. But I think he can get there sooner than a lot of fighters who are at this particular stage and age of their careers just because of his amateur experience and fighting different guys around the world."

I wouldn't necessarily say school him, considering he was almost stopped. It was an entertaining fight where Nevin was out boxing him in the beginning, then Valdez caught up to him and dropped him with the body attack.

[QUOTE=Cuauhtémoc1520;13169211]Pro game and amateur game have NOTHING to do with each other. No head gear, 8oz gloves and 4 rounds and up. Many great pro's were beat by guys in the amateurs they later on went to destroy in the…
