Del Valle vs Darchinyan in Play For September Bout?

By Rey Colon

Undefeated Orlando Del Valle (16-0, 11 KO's), in all likelihood, will reappear in the ring in month of September in a fight that could be televised on HBO. The opponent being mentioned, according to sources, is dangerous veteran and former four-time world champion Vic Darchinyan (37-5-1, 27 KO's). Del Valle is ranked fourth by the WBA and WBO as a featherweight, but the Puerto Rican boxer opted to drop to 122-pounds, while Darchinyan would move up from bantamweight to super bantamweight.
