Undefeated Mexican champion Valdez (30-0, 23 KOs) brings to the table his WBC belt. In his previous bout last September he scored a unanimous decision against Robson Conceicao, which marked the first successful defense of his title, that he had claimed against Miguel Berchelt by knockout in the tenth round early the same year.
Unbeaten representative of the country-host Shakur Stevenson (17-0, 9 KOs) enters the squared circle holding the WBO strap. The American champion claimed the title last October by TKO in the tenth round against then champion Jamel Herring. Before that the 2016 Rio Olympics silver medalist lifted the interim belt by unanimous decision against Jeremiah Nakathila.
