TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It went the distance but in the end Oscar Valdez was still too much for challenger Scott Quigg.

Valdez (24-0, 19 KOs), the WBO featherweight champion, won a twelve-round unanimous decision Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

The Nogales, Sonora-native and Tucson-bred Valdez received scores of 117-111, 117-111 and 118-110 from the fight’s three judges.

The bout ended up not being a title fight after Quigg (34-2-2, 25 KOs), the former champion, came in 2.8-pounds over the featherweight limit of 126-pounds.
