Oscar Valdez v Scott Quigg Fight Preview
Welcome to The Fight Betting Oscar Valdez v Scott Quigg fight preview, ahead of this weekends fight.
One fight that is definitely worth watching this Saturday is the bout between Mexican Oscar Valdez and Briton Scott Quigg. Valdez is one of Mexico’s rising stars and a force to be reckoned with.
Scott by no means has an easy task. However, if he were to come out on top, the win would elevate his reputation to whole new heights.
Scott Quigg will be the underdog in this match having to face Valdez on his home turf. The Briton will have to draw on all his aggression if he is to strip the Mexican off his WBO world featherweight title.
Oscar Valdez has time and again showed what he is all about by continually sending his opponents packing. Both men have impressive records, and previous performances and fans can’t wait to take part in the excitement.
Scott had this to say about Oscar Valdez, “I really can’t see our styles not jetting. It’s really going to be a fireworks show. As you say he puts everything into every shot and I’m not going to let him get any momentum. I do believe we are going to meet in the middle of the ring and it’s going to be bombs away.”
Valdez has the backing of American fans. When asked what he thought about his March 10 showdown with his British rival, he said, “I know that my March 10 world title defence against Scott Quigg will be a fun one for all the boxing fans because our styles combine so perfectly to make a real war. As usual, on March 10, I will leave it all in the ring at StubHub Center to show everyone that I am one of the best featherweights in the world.
Quigg who is 27 years old is by no means slowing down even against his younger 23-year-old opponent. He still packs some heavy and fast punches. Valdez may be gaining popularity fast, but Quigg won’t let the hype affect his game.
If on the other hand, Oscar Valdez was to get his way and knockout Scoot Quigg, it would only legitimize his reputation as a force to look out for in boxing. However, his most recent fights against the likes of Miguel Marriaga and Genesis Servania has proven that Valdez can be overcome with precision punching. This is what Scott will aim to use against Valdez.
The fact that Valdez didn’t knock them out also shows that he can be overcome.
Looking at Scott’s last fight, he beat Oleg Yefimovich who was previously undefeated. This certainly helps to boost his confidence.
All said, it seems that these two fighters are evenly matched, and the win could go either way. This in part is what makes it so exciting. Both have a reputation to uphold. Oscar Valdez and his team may be looking forward to this bout mainly because they have confidence that they can beat Scott Quigg.
Scott has a tendency to start off slow, something he seriously needs to avoid as Oscar Valdez could use the opportunity as a base to gain momentum. One thing is for sure though; it’s all going to be fireworks at the StubHub Center in California.
