By Ryan Burton and Damián Ferrer Reyes

Super bantamweight prospect Orlandito Del Valle (16-1) has advised BoxingScene.com that he is leaving for Mexico on Monday to train with Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain. Del Valle said that he and his manager (who also trained him) Ray Rivera made the decision together.

"Me and Ray (former trainer and actual manager) are feeling very excited. This is a new chapter in our career and we are both looking forward to it. We made this decision as a team and we hoping for nothing but the best," Del Valle explained.

The Puerto Rican fighter is looking to bounce back from his September loss to Vic Darchinyan. He said that he is thrilled to be able to fight under the tutelage of such a legendary figure in the sport and can't wait to get started.  

"Personally I feel like a little kid ready to go to his first day of school. It's an honor for me just knowing that I will be part of a legendary stable and I am aiming to start writing my little piece of history at the Romanza Gym with Nacho and my whole Team Del Valle which include all my fans.  I am nothing with out them," Del Valle stated.

Beristain has trained many of the sport's top fighters such future Hall of Famers Juan Manuel Marquez and Rafael Marquez, and Hall of Famer Ricardo "Finito" Lopez.
