“This was a great experience,” said Shane Mosley Jr. “This was my first fight as a Golden Boy fighter. I’m glad I got the win and got to knock some dust off of me.

“It was different due to the circumstances. Ultimately, it’s still a fight. He came to win.

“I think it was a good performance from me, but I still have to add some more things to my game, like adding more punches to the body.”

“I felt I had an OK performance,” said Hector Valdez. “I give myself a 7 out of 10. But I was calm, which is good.

“But now I need to work on being calm and being active with my punches.

“Now I’m going to go back to the gym, and I hope to come back soon on another Golden Boy card.”
