"I know Meraz is a Mexican, and I expect him to come

De Alba is very excited about the opportunity to fight on a
high profile card that will be headlined by Roy Jones, Jr.
"I am very much looking forward to fight on this card that
will be headlined by Roy Jones, Jr. He is a legend, and to
share the same ring as him is a great honor."
The Douglas fight was a good experience for De Alba, and his
performance in his subsequent bouts has shown that he has
learned and raised his game from that contest.
"After the Douglas loss, that fight made me aware of my
talent. I could have won that fight. I learned that I have
the talent and now the experience that will pave the way in
my career. But first things first. I am just ready to get
back in the ring on Friday and perform in Wilmington, and
hopefully make some new fans for Team De Alba."
