Oscar Valdez’s massive world title unification clash with Shakur Stevenson will be shown live on Sky Sports from Las Vegas in the early hours of Sunday May 1.
Mexican star Valdez is defending his WBC title against WBO King Stevenson, one of America’s hottest talents, with both super featherweights risking their undefeated records.
“I want to make it clear that I’m the best 130-pound fighter in the world,” said Valdez, who has won his 30 professional fights.
“We know Shakur Stevenson is very good in combat, but he’s even better on social media. I’ll let my fists speak for themselves.”
Stevenson, who holds a 17-0 record, said: “I’ve been chasing this fight for almost three years since we were both at featherweight.
“On April 30, I’m going to show him and the world why he’s been avoiding me all this time.
“I am the best young fighter in the world and I will become unified champion.”
