Aduku and Velsaint at the weigh-in for their 8-round middleweight clash in Florida tonight


Darrelle Valsaint: Daniel Aduku’s opponent who credits curiosity of Floyd Mayweather for boxing career

Darrelle Valsaint (8-0, 6 KOs), also known as ‘Blast’ is a middleweight boxing prospect from Orlando, Florida, who fought in the 2020 Olympics (held in 2021) for Haiti, and will return July 26th, on the televised portion of’s Wednesday Night Fights, as he faces Ghana’s Daniel Aduku (15-3-1, 11 KOs).

Valsaint, who currently boasts a record of 8-0, with 6 knockouts, will face the toughest opponent of his career. It also signals his first 8-round contest having been a mainstay on the various ProBox TV undercards.

The 6′ 1″ southpaw has no problem switching to orthodox and is known for keeping his opponents thinking.

He continues his undefeated march as a prospect on way to becoming a contender if he can get past the more experienced Aduku, as he attempts to announce himself as one of the future stars of the middleweight division.

Valsaint, who was once a troubled student that led to his expulsion from ten schools, has seen boxing have a transformative effect on his life.

As Valsaint watched Floyd Mayweather fight when he stumbled across it on television, he began to have a curiosity toward boxing. That curiosity led to a passion, which gave him a purpose for his life.

A common trope in boxing is that often fighters from hard-luck circumstances stemming from poverty and despair often shudder to think where they’d be without boxing – that is the case for Valsaint. As boxing has been his saving grace.

Now it appears Valsaint wants to say thank you to the sport that saved him by one day winning a world title.

His nickname “Blast” comes from his explosive and fast style, mirroring a blast of dynamite. As the youngest fighter to compete at the 2020 Olympics, and the man who served as the flag-bearer for Haiti, his goals and expectations are high.

Valsaint looks to take the next step forward in his already promising and exciting career on Wednesday evening.
