Luis Orlandito del Valle (14-0-0, 11ko) and José Beranza (34-21-2, 26ko), weighed in at 122.4lbs and 122lbs respectively yesterday, ahead of their much anticipated match-up on Saturday evening, at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. “The people there were really excited,” said Del Valle about the weigh-in; held yesterday at the New York State Athletic Commision.

He added: “Beranza has already defeated two formerly undefeated Boricuas and did the same during his last fight against Christopher Martin but the story will be different against ‘Orlandito’ del Valle.”

Del Valle versus Beranza was scheduled as a 124lbs fight for eight rounds.

As a professional in the featherweight division (126lbs) del Valle won the New York State title after defeating veteran Pascal Rouse and won the WBAs regional title, the NABA, after defeating Vietnamese fighter Dat Nguyen (17-1-0, 6ko at the time) by unanimous decision on the eve of New York’s Puerto Rican Day Parade – pictured above.

This event is part of Dibella Entertainment’s ‘Broadway Boxing’ series, in which the main fight will feature fellow Boricua and super lightweight Gabriel ‘Tito’ Bracero (18-0-0, 3ko) who will take on former world champion, DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (37-19-1, 22ko).

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster – 1.800.475.3000 and are priced at $45, $65, $85 and $125.
