Quigg is still relevantly new to the featherweight division having moved up from Super Bantamweight following the only defeat of his career, a split decision loss to rival Carl Frampton in 2016.

Valdez, however, remains undefeated and will be making the 4th defence of his WBO featherweight belt, a belt he captured when it was vacant against Matias Carlos Adrian Rueda in 2016.

It looks to be a good clash of styles and there is potential for this bout to be a very intriguing and entertaining affair. Both fighters have displayed good punch power and solid chins so far in their careers.
