I don't see much evidence to suggest Valdez was jabbing his head off. The longer reports that describe the entire course of the fight don't seem to paint that picture.
I'm assuming you've seen the footage we have of Valdez/Moore, Valdez/Baker, Valdez/Satterfield, Valdez/Jackson, and Valdez/McMurty. Despite various points of his career, while he had a jab, he wasn't one for controlling distance. He liked to mix it up close, had a good right hand and uppercut.
