At age 33, opinions suggest that even during his prime years, Valdez may not have overcome these opponents due to Stevenson's speed and Navarrete's size advantage.

Oscar Valdez built a reputation through notable victories but faced significant challenges against high-caliber opponents like Shakur Stevenson and Emanuel Navarrete, highlighting potential limitations based on physical attributes indeed speed and size during certain matchups.

The fight between Oscar Valdez and Liam Wilson carries implications beyond a title shot; it marks a crucial pivot point in professional trajectories shaped by past confrontations with common adversaries.
