The talk and hype surrounding Edwin Valero has been less then flattering over the last two years, in fact other than the admission of Valero’s power, most of the time he is referenced as a one dimensional slugger with an untested chin who is going to fall hard when he faces a real opponent.
Much of the limited praise has to do with the fact that Valero has had only a handful of fights in the United States, most of them early in his career. When he faced Vicente Mosquera for the WBA super featherweight title in 2006, Mosquera’s own list of opposition was far from stellar, leaving little to help build Valero’s legitimacy.
Edwin Valero fits the stereotype of many fighters that hail from small countries where most of their wins are over part time fighters just looking to make an extra buck. When Valero left the super featherweight division in April, 2009 to face Antonio Pitalua for the vacant WBC version of the lightweight belt, most critics questioned if his power would follow him up the weight class jump.
The win over Pitalua and title gain again did little to impress because just like Mosquera, Pitalua had a history of fighting soft opposition himself; just two bouts prior to the one with Valero he faced a fighter making his debut and the combined record of his three prior opponents before that had been 0-8.
This did little to make Valero's stoppage win impressive anywhere but on paper. So, when Valero was scheduled to face Antonio DeMarco, the interim WBC champion, a well rounded fighter with good stamina, a good chin and a 15 fight win streak, many thought Valero would be exposed for what he was, nothing more than fighter with questionable power, handpicked opponents and an over exaggerated reputation that has been built on word of mouth more than actual footage available.

In what was thought to be a very competitive test for WBC lightweight ruler Edwin Valero, the Venezuelan southpaw handled the challenge of fellow lefty Antonio DeMarco with style last night at The Arena in Monterrey, Mexico.
DeMarco came into the bout having well defeated the trio of Jose Alfaro, Anges Adjaho and Almazbek Raiymkulov in 2009 but found Valero to be on another level entirely.
From the start it was Valero who controlled the pace of the contest, using his fast hands to deliver punishing power shots, particularly the lethal left that had stopped all 23 of his previous opponents.
But DeMarco showed remarkable toughness to keep going, dealing out punishment of his own when the opportunity arose but did lose a point for an inadvertent elbow that opened a massive cut on Valero's forehead. More...

A real matchup at lightweight takes place tonight at The Arena in Monterrey, Mexico as WBC titlist Edwin Valero meets the Interim WBC beltholder, Antonio DeMarco.
Valero, 26-0 (26), needs no introduction as the reigning KO king of the sport. The 28 year old southpaw from Venezuela has finished off every single opponent who has stepped into a ring with him and previously held the WBA super feather belt.
24 year old DeMarco, 23-1-1 (17), from Tijuana, Mexico, also a southpaw, has won 12 in a row including a tenth round stoppage of former WBA lightweight titlist Jose Alfaro in October to capture the Interim WBC crown.
Valero is in a league of his own in the power department and DeMarco can certainly punch but this contest will likely come down to who can take the shots better.
Neither fighter is defensively oriented, gaining victories behind overwhelming offensive skills and the man that can back the other up in the second half of the fight, if it goes that long, will likely emerge the winner. More...

There were a few good cards across America last night, with Cuban superstar in waiting, Yuriorkis Gamboa, winning his first fight at featherweight in thrilling fashion at Buffalo Bill's Star Arena in Primm, Nevada.
Former WBO Super Bantam title challenger Al Seeger, 27-4 (21), was put into the ring with Gamboa but the Savannah, Georgia man was immediately overcome by the quicksilver Cuban, who hammered Seeger out of contention at 2:30 of the very first round.
Gamboa, 11-0 (9), dropped down from super feather for the first time and looked sensational. The 26 year old has been a professional for only 14 months but looks certain to make a genuine impression on the world stage.
On the undercard, WBO Latino Light Middle titlist Richard Gutierrez, 24-2-1 (14), was held to a draw in a ten round non-title fight by tough Bahamanian journeyman, Jerome Ellis, 11-8-2 (10).
On a J. Russell Peltz show at the New Alhambra in Philadelphia, PA light heavyweight prospect Chuck Mussachio, 12-0-1 (5), outpointed Delaware's Richard Stewart, 14-6-2 (8), over eight rounds. More...

In a war of wills and attrition, after being hurt considerably by a left hook in round five, Alfredo “Perro” Angulo weathered the storm and came back to stop Richard Gutierrez at 2:48 of the very same round to capture the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Light Middleweight Title. The bout was the second televised event of an excellent fight card put together by Gary Shaw Productions and HBO in Primm, NV on Saturday night.
The two exceptionally tough light middleweights wasted no time in the opening round, standing toe to toe and digging hard shots up and down on each other’s head and torso. Colombia’s Gutierrez showed a better defense early on, landing the more telling blows to seemingly take an action packed round one that left the crowd cheering.
Gutierrez also showed surprising strength early on, backing Angulo into the ropes from time to time. Angulo, who fought in the Olympics for Mexico, was calm and collected in only his 13th professional fight 13-0 (10) against his toughest and most experienced opponent to date in Gutierrez 24-2 (14). The 29 year old Gutierrez had taken world class fighter, Joshua Clottey to the limit almost two years ago in a close majority decision loss.
Angulo made some adjustments, being a bit more elusive, switching to a southpaw stance, and attacking the body ferociously, producing some wild exchanges in the second and third rounds. The hard punching Angulo noticeably hurt Gutierrez towards the end of round three, forcing Gutierrez to box more off the back foot for a while.
The fourth round was clearly Angulo’s best as he started to take the fight over, winning most of the wild exchanges and showing some movement and underrated boxing skills, developed by sparring the past couple years with some of the best opponents that the Southern California gym scene has to offer.
