[Video] Oscar Valdez Relishes Underdog Role vs. Shakur: “I always rise to the competition!”

You’re only as good as your last fight. No one knows that better than Oscar Valdez, who despite being undefeated and the WBC super featherweight champion, is viewed as a significant underdog this Saturday (April 30) against WBO champion Shakur Stevenson. In some circles, Valdez is even being called a stepping stone to Stevenson’s Pound 4 Pound ascent similar to Diego Corrales against Floyd Mayweather in 2001. Valdez explained to BeatsBoxingMayhem why he’s relishing the underdog role just he did against Miguel Berchelt, a fight where he delivered the 2021 Knockout of the Year.

The fight card begins at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN.
