Tony Valdez Reflects on Hollewood Montes Fight and Aftermath

Recently, we conducted an impromptu interview with Espanola bantamweight boxer Tony Valdez at ESPN Friday Night Fights at the Pueblo Pavilion. Valdez discussed his training with recent debutant Brandon Holmes and his epic match with Raymond “Hollewood” Montes.

In their rematch -which Valdez won my TKO- Montes was rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed with swelling of the brain. Despite having a personal beef with Montes, Valdez took the time to visit his former rival to end the feud.
