For the final time this summer (for now), Top Rank will be putting on a mid-week boxing event. Top Rank returns to the MGM Grand Conference Center on July 21 with a stacked card.
Before the fighters squared off in the ring, they squared off at the weigh-ins. The main event will be Oscar Valdez v. Jayson Velez.
Valdez (27-0), the former WBO Featherweight Champion, fought three times in 2019. He defended the title six times up until June 2019. After that, he moved up to junior-lightweight and beat Adam Lopez back in November via TKO. It was his 21st bout that ended via some form of knockout. He is hoping to face Miguel Berchelt for the WBC Super-Featherweight Title down the line.
Velez (29-6-1) is 2-1 in his last three fights after losing to prospect Ryan Garcia in 2018. His last bout was a split decision loss against Jaime Arboleda back in February.
Also set to return to action is Kim Clavel, the former ESPY /Pat Tillman Award winner.
