Former Featherweight Titlist 🇲🇽Oscar Valdez (28-0-0, 22 KO👊) totaled three knockdowns to stop 🇵🇷Jayson Velez (29-7-1, 21 KOs👊) in the tenth and final round of their super featherweight bout Tuesday night in Las Vegas.
It appears a big matchup against WBC Super-Featherweight Champion 🇲🇽Miguel Berchelt is up soon, something that Valdez welcomes with open arms. He would later say that it would be an honor for him to fight with Berchelt, citing the legendary 🇲🇽Marco Antonio Barrera and 🇲🇽Erik Morales wars, in anticipating that a all-Mexico war of that caliber may ensue. In a Judging sidenote, long time Judge 📝Dave Moretti had Jayson Velez ahead 76-75 entering the ninth round…anybody up for some changes of the Guard when it comes to Judges?

The co-main event on the Williams/Rosario card was between fast rising undefeated prospect 🇺🇸Chris “Primetime” Colbert (14-0-0, 5KO👊), and former WBA Super-Featherweight Titlist 🇵🇦Jezreel Corrales (23-4-0, 9KO👊). The fight didn’t exactly move the crowd at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but it served more as a stringent test of sorts of Colbert as Corrales brings a certain level of pedigree to the ring with him. Colbert did what was expected of him and worked his way towards a Unanimous Decision to where he would nab the vacant interim WBA Super-Featherweight Title, opening up a new plateau and plethora of top-end talent to now 🎯target.

For what was former World Champion 🇬🇧Carl “The Jackal” Frampton’s (27-2-0, 15KO👊) first fight officially at Super-Featherweight (a contracted weight of 128 lbs), he looked as sharp overall as he had looked in years and shined, showing a multi-faceted bag of tricks in out-thinking young previously unbeaten boxer 🇺🇸Tyler McCreary (16-1-1, 7KO👊), flooring him twice, and cruised to the Unanimous Decision verdict.
