FINALLY WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez has the kind of opposition he craves. He fights Scott Quigg in Carson on Saturday (March 10).

We’re looking for the bigger names and, here we go, we have one in front of us. I have to take it more than seriously. I’ve heard this plenty of times: If you want to be considered the best, you have to fight the best. And I do see Scott Quigg as one of the best fighters out there. Definitely, I am very excited for this fight,” Valdez said.

He was  sparring Quigg only last year and will have learned from those rounds. “I was really focused on my fight with Miguel Marriaga. The sparring session was just a sparring session for me. We did some great work. I’ve been telling everybody if the fight is as good as the sparring session, they can expect fireworks because Scott Quigg is a great fighter. He proved it in that sparring session,” Valdez said. “Me and my trainer, Manny Robles, did a tremendous job in the gym going back and forth on the mistakes we made, the good and bad, and we worked on it in the gym. We’re going to prove it on Saturday night.
