Louis Del Valle (born July 13, 1968 in Long Island City, New York) is an American boxer and the former WBA light heavyweight title holder. He received some of his training at the Morris Park Boxing Club in the Van Nest section of the Bronx.[1]

Professional career

Known as "Honey Boy", Del Valle turned pro in 1992 and won his first 22 bouts, setting up a shot at long-time WBA light heavyweight champion Virgil Hill in 1996. Hill won a close unanimous decision. In 1997 he took on Eddy Smulders for the vacant WBA light heavyweight title and won via 8th round TKO. He lost the belt in his next fight, a clear decision loss to Roy Jones Jr in a WBC/WBA unification bout, but became the first fighter ever to knock Jones down.

In 2001 he took on Bruno Girard for vacant WBA light heavyweight title, but came up short of the title in a draw. In 2002 he rematched Girard for the same belt, but lost a split decision.

De Leon Tinsley (9-3-1), on July 18, 2008 won a unanimous decision over Del Valle (36-6-1), 40, in the 8-round bout at Mahi Temple Auditorium. Judges Stu Winston and Fred Flutie scored the bout for Tinsley as did Bill Ray (77-75). Tinsley weighed 189 pounds while Del Valle came in at 198.[2][3]
