CARSON, CA -- Oscar Valdez Jr of Mexico retained his WBO featherweight belt with a unanimous decision victory of Miguel Marriaga of Columbia in the main event of the Top Rank triple world championship at the StubHub Center here Saturday night.
Valdez (22-0-0, 19KOs) dropped Marriaga (25-2-0, 21KOs) in round 10 but could not finish the Columbian. The scores were 119-108, 116-111 and 118-109 in favor of Valdez. The fight was a give and take with Marriaga landing his share but Valdez landed the heavier ones.
