Valdez vs Quigg Odds – Top Rank is back on ESPN this Saturday with a WBO world featherweight title fight between Oscar Valdez and Scott Quigg in the main event slot. Check your local listings on Saturday night.
The featherweight division is loaded and here undefeated champion Valdez (23-0) faces battle-tested veteran Quigg (34-1-2) in a fight that could deliver the best fight of the weekend. The 27 year old Vargas won the WBO world title back in July of 2016 and he has looked in solid form making three defenses since. Valdez has scored 19 knock outs in his career but he has gone the distance in his last two fights. Theere is no doubt that Valdez hasenjoyed a reputation as a ruthless puncher and he would like nothing more than to notch another stoppage win against Quigg.
The truth is against Quigg, that is unlikely to happen. Quigg is stepping out of his shell a bit as he will be making his stateside debut. Quigg’s lone career loss comes to Carl Frampton and a win here means he might be able to lure his rival into a big money rematch back home. We are going to get a good version of Quigg here and that means he likely will have his moments in the fight. He is crafty and one could argue that he has faced the better opposition but he is also older and slower than Valdez.
An open question here is will Valdez break through and score the knock out or will Quigg live to see the judge’s cards? Ifthat is the case, the Brit may have a shot but heis going to have to start fast and put a few early rounnds in the bank.
An eight rounder on the undercard is already getting attention at the books as 29-1 Andy Ruiz Jr returns to action after taking all of 2017 off. We last saw him in December of 2016 when he lost a WBO world title fight to Joseph Parker in New Zealand. Ruiz Jr is still under 30 years old and he has a chance to make an impact in today’s heavyweight division, but he has to get bck in the ring. Though talented, Ruiz Jr has had his desire questioned previously in his career and it will be interesting to see what level he comes back at. The opponent is 2004 Olympian Devin Vargas (20-4), who took close to three years off before returning in 2017. He has gone 2-0 since his comeback, but he is best remembered for his amateur career than anything he has done as a pro so far.
Promoter Bob Arum has nine fights planned for the live event at the StubHub Center. Five high bouts scheduled for 10 rounds are on th schedule and all of those fights will likely get attention at the books by week’s end.
One of those bouts sees undefeated prospects Andy Vences (20-0) and Erick De Leon (17-0) face off for a pair of regional titles at super featherweight. Both men have been brought along the right way and this is a step-up fight for both men. This fight will almost certainly air on the ESPN broadcast as the event’s co-feature.
