I will deliver my best performance ever when I fight in Texas. Thank you to the officials who made this possible and to all the fans who have supported me; I will make you proud.

The 26-year-old southpaw is currently training in Las Vegas with noted veteran boxing coach Kenny Adams in preparation for his next fight against number-one contender Israel Perez of Argentina, on June 12th in Tokyo, Japan. After this mandatory title defense, Valero says he hopes to fight in Texas sometime this September.
