Knockout Publicity

Dallas, TX (September 12, 2016) – IBF #8 super bantamweight Luis “Orlan-
dito” Del Valle and his team arrived in Dallas this afternoon after leaving Pu-
erto Rico earlier today.

Del Valle, who hails from Bayamon, meets unbeaten Diego De La Hoya, 15-
0 (9 KO's), Saturday evening over ten rounds in what is expected to be a cla-
ssic Puerto Rico vs Mexico slugfest. The bout opens an HBO PPV telecast
starting at 9 PM ET headlined by the junior middleweight championship fi-
ght between pound for pound superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and reigning
WBO champion Liam Smith. The card takes place a short distance from Da-
llas in Arlington, TX at AT&T Stadium, best known as the home of the Da-
llas Cowboys.

Del Valle, 22-2 (16 KO's), had grueling training camp to prepare for what
he calls the biggest fight of his career. With his preparation in the books, Del
Valle is supremely confident that the work he put in along with his signific-
ant experience advantage will guide him to victory.

“The work has been put in by myself and my team,” said Del Valle. “I'm fo-
cused and ready to fight. A win can change everything for me. De La Hoya is
undefeated and people are discussing him as a future superstar. His team belie-
ves I'm the guy he'll beat to get to the next level and that's a major mistake. I've
been down this road before and this was the best camp I ever had. Come Satur-
day night, everybody will see that Orlandito Del Valle is a serious player in the
122 pound division!”
