Valdez-Quigg Nearly Done Deal for March 10 at StubHub Center

Valdez-Quigg Nearly Done Deal for March 10 at StubHub Center

Top Rank and Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, the promoters for Valdez and top contender Scott Quigg, respectively, are in the process of finalizing a contract for Valdez and Quigg to square off on March 10, two sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN on Monday.

A deal almost has been finalized for Oscar Valdez to defend his WBO featherweight title against Scott Quigg.

Valdez was recently touted as a potential opponent for another Irish fighter in Belfast's Carl Frampton, and the victor of a prospective Valdez-Quigg clash in March would be a prime candidate to throw down with "The Jackal" this winter or early next year should all go to plan for Quigg's only conqueror in the first half of 2018.

Quigg will have to compete in enemy territory in LA against the Mexican, who has fought across America in his 23-0 career.

The fight will take place outdoors at the StubHub Center in Carson, just outside of LA in California. Valdez got knocked down in the fourth round and he rebounded to drop Servania in the fifth round of the all-out slugfest in Tucson, Arizona, where Valdez lived for several years during his childhood.

The 29-year-old Quigg (34-1-2, 25 KOs), a former WBA super bantamweight champion, is 3-0 as a featherweight.

Valdez is unbeaten and will be making the fourth defence of his WBO strap should the deal get over the line.

The Bury, England, native moved up to 126 pounds following his lone loss - a 12-round split decision against Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton in their 122-pound championship unification fight in February 2016.

Quigg, however, has done some training in the same gym, and now operates predominantly out of Freddie Roach's Wild Card facility in Hollywood.
