Edwin Valero..the next big thing?

Have you ever been into a situation where in you wanted to soar high but no matter how much you set your foot up there, there is always something or someone there to drag you down…
Edwin Valero has just been granted a new lease in life as he was granted a boxing license on the state of Texas. We all remembered Valero as the boxing demon who pulverized his opponents and winning his entire match by knockouts. This is the time Valero will soar high and this time no ones gonna stop him from getting to the top.
After his boxing license was taken out from him because of a head injury he suffered on a motorcycle accident the state of Texas cleared Valero and the Venezuelan fighter will now have to prove his worth and clear the doubts as he was once leveled a hype fighter with basically unknown opponents with the exception of Vicente Mosquera.
A slugger with power in both hands Valero is now being groomed as the next big thing in the junior lightweight division as Pacquiao is moving up to the 135lb division. Boxing fanatics would love to see Valero match up with fellow undefeated Dominican Republic contender Joan Guzman or a battle against the best counter puncher in the industry Juan Manuel Marquez. Valero was once a decorated Amateur fighter left his good boxing skills in exchange for a power slugging puncher. Knocking almost all his opponents in round 1 Valero don’t waste time and runs at you like a wild train.
The new life Valero has is just a start of something big. A fight against a worthy opponent would give him redemption. Before he challenges Pacquiao he has to make a name for himself and dispatch all the opposition trying to get his no.1 spot against Pacquiao. Style wise he is a tailor made for Pacquiao moving forward and sometimes dropping his defenses trying to set up his power shots.
Valero may be a great boxer but as far as legacy he still has a long long way to go.

@skippy -hehehe true that, But talks have been surfacing of a possible Pacquiao-Valero match this November…for sure that fight will not last long..

skippy says:

he has to move up to fighting jeepney drivers. i don’t think any more pedicab or tricycle drivers would step in the ring with him.

hingedman says:

without biased i think Pacquiao has more superior skills compared to Valero… Valero has to prove himself first before thinking of a megafight against Manny.
