Luis De Valle Returns on Berto-Zaveck, Moving To 122

San Juan, Puerto Rico - Undefeated featherweight hitter Luis "Orlandito" del Valle (13 to 0.10 KO's) will return on Saturday, September 3, at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, as part of the event called 'Battle in Biloxi', with a main event featuring the champion of International Boxing Federation (IBF) at 147, Jan Zaveck, facing former world champion Andre Berto in an HBO televised fight. Del Valle will take on Kenyan boxer Anthony Napunyi (14-10, 7KO's) in a 10-round bout.

Del Valle returns from a unanimous decision win over Dat Nguyen (17-2, 5KO's), which made him the NABA champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA) at 126 pounds in a bout that was televised by Showtime.

"We are going to fight a strong Kenyan. He lost his last fight, but he didn't fight at his natural weight of 122 pounds and I've been told that he is training hard, but we're ready for this new test and we're going to bring this victory to Puerto Rico," said Del Valle, who is represented by Gary Shaw Productions and DiBella Entertainment.

Del Valle, at 126 pounds, is currently ranked number 10 for the World Boxing Association (WBA), but in 2012 he will campaign at 122 pounds and for that reason this fight will be fought at a catch-weight of 124 pounds.

Raymond Rivera, trainer and manager of the undefeated prospect, said - "After fighting 13 fights at 124 pounds, I think the 122 is comfortable for 'Orlandito' because he always comes in weighing less than 126 pounds and we talked to Lou Dibella and the decision was made to drop down to 122. "

Tickets for Berto vs Zaveck are priced at $ 150, $ 100 and $ 50 and are on sale and available online at http://www.ticketmaster.com/, or by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 in any Ticketmaster outlet or the box office at Beau Rivage Theatre.

This boy has future champ written all over him. Dulorme, Del Valle and Carlos Ivan Velazquez are my top 3 favorites.

I've trained w/ him and I can tell he's really focused, he's such a nice person, I wish him the best, I know he'll be ready for anything this guy brings.

He should be good at 122 win a belt try and unify and move up if he gains weight

Del Valle has shown good skills, stamina & that he's a punching machine & likes to bring it on..Hopefully he'll keep up that same performance when he starts facing top of the line opponents..

That is what I have been saying as well. Del Valle looks like a top contender championship quality fighter already. He IS the package. He and Dulorme.
