LAS VEGAS._ Culiacan native Edy Valencia Mercado (19-6-6, 7 KO’s) had an important match in Las Vegas against former world champion (28-1, 18 KO’s).

Edy Valencia faced the American Jessie Magdaleno, in a fight that was agreed to for 8 rounds in the Super featherweight division.

After 22 months without activity, Jessie Magdaleno defeated Valencia Mercado by unanimous decision, by scores of 80-72 on the three side cards.

Despite the decision of the judges, Edy Valencia sold the defeat face to face, since from the opening bell he went out in search of landing the best shots.

“We lost the fight once again, but you learn from everything, boxing is about appreciation and the judges saw me lose. Thanks to each of my sponsors”, the Sinaloan published on his social networks.

Edy Valencia’s last fight had been in December in Culiacán against Héctor Escobar, which did not have a winner due to an accidental headbutt.
