Shakur Stevenson’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Valdez

Stevenson enters his first fight of the calendar year on the heels of what some pugilistic pundits saw as the performance of 2021.

Becoming the lineal champion of his weight category would certainly be a great way for Stevenson to bolster his momentum even further.

Stevenson is someone who many see as a possible enormous pay-per-view star in the future.

A win like this is one that may see as having the potential to jettison towards that Floyd Mayweather tier that many see Stevenson being capable of existing in.

Oscar Valdez’s Boxing Odds and Betting Outlook vs Stevenson

Valdez is a decorated amateur with a pair of Olympic appearances before embarking on this incredible pro run.

The WBC title was garnered via highlight-reel stoppage, but Valdez is looking to rebound a bit here. This after a pair of performances that some sweet science aficionados saw as lukewarm comparatively.

This is a battle of two undefeated champion fighters and is as good as you’re going to get in Boxing matchmaking.

The unique southpaw angles and two-inch reach advantage are of note for Stevenson. But the experience edge of Valdez is certainly not to be ignored as a standout variable for him.
