Valero: I want big fights

Hilmar Rojas

By Robert Coster

Returning to his native Venezuela this week, WBC lightweight champion Edwin Valero was his usual talkative, ebullient self and made no bones about upping his level of opposition and wanting to fight the biggest name fighters. “I think I proved against Antonio DeMarco that I can box as well as punch. It was definitely my best fight,” stated a jubilant Edwin. As for Valero’s hit list, the unbeaten “KO King” suggested Juan ‘Baby Bull’ Diaz as his next foe, but “he seems to have a bout already scheduled.” Another name he mentioned is Juan Manuel Marquez, ” a great fighter and it would make for an exciting bout. I really would like to face Juan Manuel.” But Valero’s main target is, of course, Manny Pacquaio. “I’m ready to go up to whatever weight Manny wants in order to fight him and, furthermore, I will not require that he be tested for anything. I just want to get in the ring with Manny. Whoever beats Pacquiao becomes the top dog in boxing. Pacman is my main objective for 2010.”
