This past Saturday at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas, Super-Featherweight sensation, Mario Barrios (9-0, 5 KOs), remained undefeated with a spectacular 6th round knockout over Jose Del Valle (4-11-3) from Puerto Rico.
“Fighting Del Valle was a great experience for me because he was just as tall as me standing around 6’2,” said Mario Barrios. “I got a lot of rounds and got the knockout in round 6. I’m ready to make a quick return to the ring and take my career to the next level with Al Haymon. I’m very happy with the way my career is going. I’ll be looking to return sometime this summer.”
Standing 6’1, Barrios is on the fast track to super stardom. Managed by Al Haymon, Barrios will most likely make his return to the ring next month. Look for Barrios to move to 8-round bout in the very near future.
