The undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez said he was impressed by Oscar Valdez’s performance against Miguel Berchelt, in which the newly minted WBC featherweight title holder won a tenth round knockout.
“It was strong. I liked the position from which the blow was delivered. It was a tough knockout. Pay attention to the position of Valdez, who was moving backwards during the knockout. In the case of a technician, you need to look at the position of his legs and head movements. Valdez all the time. was in the correct position and could throw a punch any moment he stepped back.
Referee Russell Mora said he planned to stop the fight after the tenth round, right after the bell. Burchelt took too much damage.
I rate Valdez’s performance at 20 points. I give this grade for his position and the way he worked. Valdez only needs to improve body shots. These two Mexican fighters had a lot to lose. We all have something to lose, “said Teofimo Lopez.
