Del Valle Hopes Darchinyan Win Will Bring Title Bout

By Rey Colon

Undefeated super bantamweight Orlando Del Valle (16-0, 11 KO's) does not expect to have any problems on the September 29th when he faces dangerous veteran and former champion Vic Darchinyan (37-5-1, 27 KO's). The fight will be a big test for Del Valle before a potential WBO title shot in the near future.

The bout will be held at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

"He's a very experienced fighter and three time world champion. It will be our first appearance on HBO and we are now in the strongest phase of training. We are extremely anxious to bring another great victory to Puerto Rico. And if all goes well, I would love to fight in Puerto Rico in December and I'm excited to fight in my country. And I understand that once I beat Darchinyan there will be other exciting fights that will place me at the door of a world title," Del Valle said.
