"No Excuses." Del Valle
Ready For Battle In Biloxi
Team Puerto Rico's undefeated featherweight Luis "Orlandito"
del Valle (13-0, 10 KO's) weighed in at a ready 124 lbs. for
his fight tomorrow (Saturday, September 3) at the Beau
Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, against
Kenyan boxer Anthony Napunyi (14-10, 7 KO's).
The pair will meet in a 10-round bout as part of the
undercard for the "Battle in Biloxi" HBO-televised IBF
Welterweight championship fight between Jan Zaveck and Andre
"I'm feeling great. I weighed in at 124 and he (Napunyi)
weighed in at 126.5, but it doesn't matter. No excuses. I'm
Relaxed and confident, Del Valle says despite his opponent's
relentless style, he is in for a good night.
"He puts pressure but I'm ready to counter whatever he
brings. My trainer Raymond Rivera makes sure I get ready for
all my fights. I don't like to predict knockouts, but I
continue to improve with very fight, so I know I will win in
a big way. We'll see what he has in the early rounds and
once my hands start landing, I will either knock him out or
go eight rounds and win big on the scorecards."
