In his first fight since a split decision loss to Guillermo Rigondeaux in November 2010, tough super bantamweight Ricardo Cordoba (37-3-2, 23KOs) will return on February 3 at Hotel Sheraton in Colon City, Panama. The eight round bout will take place against Miguel Valdez (19-7-2, 13KOs). Cordoba's bout with Rigondeaux took place on the Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito undercard at Cowboys Stadium in Texas. Cordoba was down in the fourth, but returned fire and put Rigondeaux down in the sixth round.
