Watch: Oscar Valdez Combinations On Fire For Shakur Stevenson Fight

Mexican Oscar Valdez’s heart is unquestionable.

It is no surprise to see him do as well as he has in recent years and brilliant to see most boxing fans would acknowledge surely.

But, his boxing technique, discipline, mentality and form isn’t far behind from the heart.

For any boxing fan who appreciates the sweet science you’ll surely enjoy this:

Seems to have a fresh revitalized mindset since 2022 and the focus there very clear.

Distance in between letting his hands go from the bag seems on point as he moves through different combinations — while all the time in unflappable balance and harmony.

Instinctively stepping back ever so slightly after letting his combination go — with guard still high and even when throwing the hooks — keeping the other glove up.

But there’s a lot more going on there in truth — mechanical if you break it down — but natural clearly for him after repetition and drilling in the gym.

The way he hit the speed bag very similar to Juan Manuel Marquez — how he used to under the tutelage of the great trainer Nacho Beristain.

In the first sequence there isn’t even a hint that he could be out of balance or mess up where his feet are positioned, surely a sign Stevenson is in for a heck of a fight.

Stevenson one of the bright young stars in world boxing too of course.

This matchmaking again shows the willingness to put the best boxers in the world in there with one another.

Crucially though — in their primes or approaching them in the future.

Boxing fans are the real winner with this Valdez vs Stevenson fight could be a fight of the year candidate.
