Oscar Valdez and Shakur Stevenson will share an intense final showdown at the weigh-in for their huge world title unification clash – watch live
Mexico’s Valdez puts his WBC title on the line against WBO King Stevenson, one of America’s hottest talents, in their super featherweight clash in Las Vegas, live on Sky Sports from 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
The two champions exchanged heated words during Thursday’s press conference, with Valdez insisting he had an answer to whatever Stevenson tries in the ring.
“With a fight with Shakur, you never know. We can punch if we have to punch, we can box if we have to box, it all depends on what Shakur brings,” Valdez said.
Stevenson was quick to respond, suggesting his opponent was trying to play mind games.
“I think he’s going to hit hard,” Stevenson said. “I think he’s trying to trick me into thinking he’s about to try and box me and get technical.
“I don’t fall for that.
“I’m ready for the Oscar Valdez to go out there throwing all those hooks and putting the pressure on.”
