I was very surprised [by the knockdown]," Valdez said at the time. "I take my hat off to Adam Lopez. He's a great fighter, great warrior, just like his father [Hector Lopez] was. I just got hit. This is boxing. I prepared myself for two, three months for [Adrian] Gutierrez. Got a new opponent, but that's no excuse. This kid is a warrior."
Adam Lopez 2:
"I would love a rematch with Oscar; he's a true fighter," Lopez said in November 2019. "I'm not a 130-pounder, but I'm a real fighter as well, so I'll take on anybody, anywhere."
