Oscar Valdez wins pro debut, beats Angel Prado in two rounds

Rafael Soto

Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez made his pro debut on Saturday night in Mexico, beating Angel Prado in two rounds.

Oscar Valdez, a standout action fighter from the 2012 Olympic games in London, made his pro debut tonight in his native Mexico, beating Angel Prado in two rounds.

Valdez (1-0, 1 KO) is now expected to return on December 7, fighting on a Top Rank card in Las Vegas, the night before Pacquiao-Marquez IV. The promotional firm signed Valdez quickly, and for good reason: He's one of the most promising action fighters to come out of this year's Olympics, which he showed tonight by unleashing his aggression on Prado (1-2, 0 KO).

Valdez, who turns 22 on December 22, had a game opponent for his debut, as Prado did come to this fight to try and win. He wasn't running from Valdez in the opening frame, but Oscar was scoring with his left hook constantly, and it made the outcome seem even more inevitable than it had been going into the fight.

In the second, Valdez put Prado down on a flurry of shots, and immediately jumped on him when action resumed, landing two clean blows before the referee called a stop to the bout. Despite Prado's protests, it was clear Valdez was the better man, and there wasn't much need to keep it going.
