Jose Valenzuela is a rising star in the world of professional boxing. Born on December 20, 1998, in Watsonville, California, Valenzuela made his professional debut at the age of 19 against Humberto Tellez on September 22, 2018, ultimately winning via unanimous decision in a four-round match-up. Since his debut, Valenzuela has racked up an impressive record of 12 wins and two losses, with all 12 wins coming by way of knockout.

Valenzuela's rise to prominence began with his debut against Tellez in 2018, where he showcased his impressive power and speed against the more experienced Tellez. He continued his unbeaten run, winning his next 11 fights, including impressive victories over the likes of Francisco Vargas, Austin Dulay, Donte Strayhorn, and Clay Burns. Valenzuela's combination of power, precision, and a solid jab has made him a dangerous opponent for any boxer.

In his professional career, Valenzuela has fought in a total of 14 fights, all of which were non-title bouts. Despite not fighting for a title yet, Valenzuela has impressed many boxing experts with his performances in the ring. He has never suffered a draw or no-contest, winning all of his 12 fights which ended with a result.

However, Valenzuela's winning run came to an end on September 4, 2022, when he faced a formidable opponent in Edwin De Los Santos. The fight ended in the third round when Santos knocked Valenzuela out, marking Valenzuela's first recorded knockout defeat in his career. Nonetheless, despite the loss, Valenzuela showed grit and determination throughout the fight, giving hope to his fans that he will come back stronger after this defeat.

Valenzuela's most recent fight was against Chris Colbert, a fellow American boxer. The fight took place on March 25, 2023, and ended in a 10 round unanimous decision victory for Colbert. Valenzuela, despite losing the fight, put on an impressive display of boxing skill and toughness. It was a great experience for the young boxer as he faced a tough opponent who tested his mettle.

Despite suffering two losses in a row, Valenzuela remains a highly regarded prospect in the super featherweight division. Several boxing experts and fans alike believe that he has the potential to become a force to be reckoned with in the future. However, to reach the top of the ranks, Valenzuela will need to bounce back from his recent defeats and return to his winning ways.

Valenzuela's professional record of 12 wins and two losses paints an impressive picture of the young boxer. Of the 12 victories, eight of them came by way of knockout, demonstrating Valenzuela's incredible punching power. While the two defeats show that the 24-year-old boxer still has a lot to learn, his ability to take punches and fight back means that he should not be underestimated as an opponent.

Valenzuela's next fight is yet to be announced, but many of his fans and supporters are eagerly awaiting his return to the ring. With his combination of power, speed, and boxing skills, the future looks bright for Valenzuela, and it is only a matter of time before he steps into the ring again and shows the world his boxing prowess.
