CompuBox Historical Review: Darchinyan-Del Valle Bout
Vic Darchinyan has one advantage - experience, having fought twelve world champions - all at 118-pounds or below. Del Valle's fought at 122 or higher his entire career. Del Valle's busier too - throwing 25 more punches per round and landing twice as many as Darchinyan. This should be a power punch festival, as 33 of their combined 39 landed punhces per round were power shots.
