Team Valero

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBC lightweight champion Edwin Valero (26-0, 26 KOs) retained his title by sixth round TKO against Héctor Velázquez (51-14-2, 35 KOs) on Saturday night at the Polideportivo Jose Maria Vargas in La Guaira, Caracas, Venezuela. Valero battered Velázquez throughout the fight and the challenger did not come out for the seventh round. Valero suffered small cuts on the bridge of the nose and over the left eye, both caused by unintentional headbutts in the first round. “It was a little frustrating,” Valero said of the cuts, “but gradually I realized that the fight was mine.” The cuts aren’t expected to cause any problems with his scheduled February 6th fight against Antonio DeMarco scheduled to take place at a site in Mexico. It was Valero’s first fight in his homeland in nearly four years. “This is a gift for all of Venezuela,” he said after the fight.
