Valdez Vs. Wilson: Start Time, TV Schedule, Ring Walks
The Desert Diamond Arena is about to rumble with a historic one-two punch of fistic festivities come March 29, live on ESPN+.
Oscar Valdez, Mexico’s own ring gladiator, squares up against Australia’s pugilistic export, Liam Wilson, in a 10-rounder that smells like redemption. Both gents are looking to scrub off the stink of past losses right in the same spot they caught them. It’s like a homecoming, but with more punches and less nostalgia.
Then, in a clash that’s got the boxing world’s ears perked, Seniesa Estrada and Yokasta Valle are gonna duke it out for the undisputed minimumweight tiara. Yes, you heard it, a tiara because when this is over, we’ll have a queen reigning supreme. The chatter’s been flying, and now it’s time to let the gloves do the talking in a 12-round dance.
Bob Arum, the big cheese at Top Rank, promises an electrifying night for the die-hards in Arizona. With Valdez throwing down with Wilson and the Estrada-Valle bout that could light up the main event marquee on its own, it’s clear there’s no love lost and a ton of action to gain.
Valdez, a two-time Olympian and former world champ across two divisions, is itching to claw his way back to the top. After a mixed bag of wins and losses, he’s eyeing Wilson as the stepping stone back to glory. Wilson, on the flip side, is still buzzing from his near-upset over Navarrete and is all in for a brawl, warning Valdez to brace for regret.
Estrada, with a flawless record and a trail of dusted divisions behind her, is all but rolling her eyes at Valle, ready to snatch those belts and cement her pound-for-pound cred. Valle, not one to shy away from a challenge, is all geared up for a showdown that’s been a long time coming, promising a spectacle that’ll have the fans on their feet.
And let’s not forget the undercard, teeming with hungry contenders and fresh faces ready to make some noise. From lightweight contender Raymond “Danger” Muratalla looking to keep his knockout streak alive to heavyweight hopeful Richard Torrez Jr. aiming to maintain his perfect KO record, the lineup’s as spicy as a habanero.
