Valdez to face the Olympic champion in September
In September in Arizona, USA, Oscar Valdez (29-0, 23 KOs) will make the first defense of his WBC featherweight title, Bob Arum said. The rival of the 30-year-old Mexican will be the Olympic champion in Rio de Janeiro Robson Conceicao (16-0, 8 KOs).
In February, in a fight for the belt of the World Boxing Council, Valdes knocked out Miguel Berchelt. Thus, the Mexican won the champion title in his second weight category.
The last time Conceicao fought was in April. The confrontation with Valdez will be the biggest test for him as a pro.
