Frank De Alba ready for showdown with Ivan Najera this Tuesday night

Bethlehem, PA (November 17, 2017) – Frank De Alba is ready to close out
2017 with a bang when he takes on Ivan Najera (17-3, 8 KOs) in the
ten-round super featherwight bout *Tuesday night.* *November 21st *at *The
Sands Bethlehem Event Center *in *Bethlehem, PA.*

The show is promoted by King’s Promotions.

De Alba of Reading, Pa. has a record of 22-2 with nine knockouts.

The 30 year-old De Alba will be looking for his 6th consecutive victory as
he has had a terrific year with wins over German Meraz and Ryan Kielczewski
(26-2) in 2017.

“Everything is good. I put in a hard eight-week camp,” Said De Alba.

De Alba and Najera were originally supposed to get together earlier this
year, but Najera had to pull out.

“I am excited to be able to finally get in the ring with him. We were
supposed to fight in June. He pulled out at the last minute and that made
me angry, because I trained hard for a full camp, but now I finally get my
opportunity to fight him.”

A win over Najera and a 6th straight win will De Alba should facilitate big
opportunities for De Alba in 2018.

“A win over him will have me on top and on my way. It will set me up for a
big opportunity in 2018. Hopefully a win will get me a shot at one of
those major regional titles and then eventually a world title. I just hope
everyone comes out and support this show on Tuesday. Everyone knows when a
Puerto Rican fighter and a Mexican fighter get together, the fight usually
produces fireworks and Tuesday night should be no different.”
