NEW YORK (December 1, 2022) -Friday night in Plant City, Florida, undefeated super welterweight Marques Valle will be back in action when he takes on Luis Midyael Sanchez in a bout scheduled for six-rounds.
Valle is managed by Split-T Management.
Valle of Wesley Chapel, Florida is a perfect 6-0 with six knockouts. The 23 year-old Valle has been explosive in his victories over the likes of Leonidas Fowlkes (2-0) and his last bout when he took out quality veteran Benjamin Whitaker in the opening round on September 9th in Plant City.
Sanchez of San Juan, Puerto Rico is 9-3 with six knockouts. The 28 year-old Sanchez is coming off a loss to undefeated Alex Rincon on March 19th in Los Angeles.
“It’s been great fighting on ProBoxTV. I couldn’t ask for anything better,” said Valle.
Marques alongside younger brother and fellow Split-T Management fighter Dominic, who also holds a perfect professional record in the paid ranks.
The older and bigger of the brothers opened up about his relationship with his younger brother Dominic as well as the love he has for his Puerto Rican roots.
Marques stated, “We’ve always been close, but boxing brought us closer. We train together, we push each other, and we have a great relationship. We really get that extra bit of hard work from each other which is what you need to be a champion I believe.”
The older Valle continued, and elaborated on his love for his Puerto Rican heritage, “Honestly, if I wasn’t Puerto Rican I don’t think I’d be boxing, because growing up everybody had to know how to fight, watching the fight, and it was like a holiday every time a big fight happened.
“There’s been so many great Puerto Rican champions, and I want to follow in their footsteps. In 2023 I want to push into those world rankings and show everyone I’m the future of Puerto Rican and Florida boxing.”
Valle weighed 153.6 lbs. Sanchez was 153.4
