Professional Career Part 1: From Prospect to Contender

following an excellent amateur career, Del Valle turned pro in 2008, fighting four times and winning three of those bouts by knockout. Three years later, Del Valle made his TV debut on Shobox: The New Generation against highly touted Dat Nguyen. Del Valle won an exciting unanimous decision against Nguyen, capturing the NABA Featherweight title in the process. Three fights later, he returned to Shobox, dominating once-beaten Christopher Martin. Del Valle, now competing in the 122 pound division, took a big step up in his next bout and lost for the first time as a pro against multi division titlist Vic Darchinyan September 29, 2012 on HBO. Del Valle, who earned stripes for his heart, was game but ultimately couldn't overcome the craftiness of his foe. Following a few victories, Del Valle returned to HBO against undefeated Luis Rosa Jr.. Del Valle dropped Rosa in the fifth and appeared to do enough to earn the judges' verdict after 10 rounds. Unfortunately, he lost a controversial unanimous decision. After a period of time, he had an amicable split from promoter Lou DiBella.

Professional Career Part 2: The Comeback

After an eight month layoff as where he was exploring his options as a promotional free agent, Del Valle signed with renowned advisor and attorney Gabriel Penagarciano, who has guided stars such as Miguel Cotto and found a new promoter in Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports. On March 15 2014, he scored an eight round stoppage of veteran Roberto Castaneda in his native Puerto Rico. In November 2015, Del Valle forced Jose Juan Beltran to retire on his stool after two one sided rounds and then second round TKO of Josh Crespo April 9, 2016 in New Hampshire. Now a father of two, Del Valle's matured not only as a fighter but as a human being and believes that will play an integral part of his rise back up the ranks.
