Del Valle is Looking To Make a Statement With Rosa

By Ryan Burton

Orlandito Del Valle (18-1) and Luis Rosa (16-0) will both be in the biggest fights of their respective careers when they face each other on Saturday night at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight will be televised on HBO2/HBO Latino.

Del Valle has won two fights in a row since suffering his only professional loss, which occurred in 2013 against former champion Vic Darchinyan.  Del Valle said that he had a great training camp and is ready to go.

"Training camp was great as usual. We are ready for the fun part and do what I love the most which is to fight," said Del Valle.

The 27-year-old Bayamon native said that he expects the best from his opponent who is also Puerto Rican and that he plans on putting on a great performance that will entertain the fans. 

"I think he is just another fighter and nothing that I haven't seen before. I expect that he will be coming with his A game so that we can give the fans what they deserve and that is nothing but fireworks and of course me coming out on top. There is no doubt about it," Del Valle stated.

Del Valle said that he has always wanted to fight in Las Vegas and is excited that his HBO return will be broadcast from the fight capital of the world.

"I feel excited yet I feel very calm. This is like déjà vu for me because I always knew that I was going to fight in Vegas sooner or later so I'm just going to have fun and enjoy fight night," Del Valle told BoxingScene.com.

I saw a lot of promise in Del Valle when he debuted on HBO vs. Darchinyan. Been looking forward to his return to the network. Should be a good one.

A big fight on a big stage. Both Puerto Ricans, but business is business. Forget the sentimentalities. We're going to see who's who and what's what. I expect a war, a spectacle. Hopefully they will provide.
