Less than eight weeks from fight night, the two went face to face outside the MGM Grand.
Tensions did not spill over, but the two undefeated champions exchanged not-so-pleasant pleasantries.
Valdez (30-0, 23 KOs), the two-weight champion from Nogales, Mexico, enters as the betting underdog for only the second time in his career.
The first time, Valdez knocked out Miguel Berchelt in a devastating fashion.
In his fifth bout at junior lightweight, Stevenson (17-0, 9 KOs) hopes a victory will vault him up the mythical pound-for-pound rankings.
Top Rank chairman Bob Arum can’t wait to see how the action unfolds.
“This is a fight between two fighters in their physical primes, the best fighting the best.
“Oscar and Shakur deserve the biggest stage, and it doesn’t get much bigger than ESPN and the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
“On April 30, a superstar will be born,” said the Hall of Famer.
