Philadelphia (May 28,2015)–This Friday night at the Stadium Holiday
Inn in Philadelphia, King’s Promotions presents a great night of boxing that will headlined by 10-round Jr. Lightweight bout between Frankie De Alba (15-1-2, 5 KO’s) and Bernardo Gomez Uribe (14-3, 10 KO’s).

De Alba of Reading, PA has been one of the hottest fighters on the East Coast as he has won 13 straight bouts and is unbeaten since dropping his professional debut in 2011.

The 27 year-old is coming into his own and has been training hard in preparation for this bout against Uribe.

“Training has been great. I feel 100% and this truly has been one of the best camps I have ever had. I really feel like I am in the best shape in my career,” said De Alba.

Like two of his last three opponents, Jose Bustos and Pablo Batres, Uribe is a tough yet unknown fighter from Mexico who sports a solid record.

“He is a unknown guy with a decent record. Besides that, I don’t know much about him but that doesn’t matter as I train for any style that he may bring.”

De Alba is on the cusp of some big fights in the Jr. Lightweight division and he can’t look past Uribe to get those opportunities.

“After this fight, I am ready for anybody they put in front of me.”

De Alba, who works in an warehouse foundry, knows that the next year is a moving year and those big fights are on the horizon.

“I know that in the next fight or two, I will be put in against another top prospect and I am confident that I have what it takes to come through against anybody. I am excited to be in the main event in Philadelphia. This is my first fight here and I am ready to put on a good show.”

In an 8-round bout, Steve Upsher Chambers (24-4-1, 6 KO’s) of Philadelphia will fight Alejandro Rodriguez (22-16-1, 8 KO’s) of Guadalajara, Mexico in a Jr. Welterweight bout.

In 6-round bouts:

Steve Upsher Chambers to have homecoming bout this Friday night at Stadium Holiday Inn in Philadelphia

Philadelphia (May 27,2015)–This Friday night at the Stadium Holiday
Inn in Philadelphia, King’s Promotions presents a great night of championship boxing that will headlined by 10-round UBF Lightweight championship bout between Frankie De Alba (15-1-2, 5 KO’s) and Bernardo Gomez Uribe (14-3, 10 KO’s).

In one of the 8-round co-features, Steve Upsher Chambers (24-4-1, 6 KO’s) returns to the city where he cut his teeth as a professional to take on Alejandro Rodriguez (24-16-1, 14 KO’s) in a Jr. Welterweight bout.

Chambers, who came originally to Philadelphia with former Heavyweight title challenger, “Fast” Eddie Chambers, fought 23 times and the famed Blue Horizon in Philadelphia and will be making his first start in the City of Brotherly Love in almost 6 years.

“I have been training hard and working on opening my new gym with (Lightweight contender) Rod Salka,” said Upsher.

“I am on weight already and I feel good. We will be fighting at 142 pounds.”

Upsher is ready to show the fans how far his abilities have grown since he turned pro in Philadelphia in 2003 when he was just 18 years old.

“I am happy to be coming back to Philadelphia. I want to show people how far I have come and see the improvement that I have made as a fighter.”

Despite losing his three bouts to the likes of former world champions Luis Collazo and Andre Berto as well as then-undefeated prospect Eddie Gomez, Upsher was competitive in all those bouts and grew tremendously from those experiences.

“It showed that I can compete against that level of fighter. Plus everyone of those guys was bigger than me. I am a natural 140 pounder and can make 135 if the right opportunity presented itself.”

Chambers went back to his native Pittsburgh to train in neighboring city Coal Center, PA.

“My mind is set on winning a world title at 140 pounds. After the three losses, I cant afford any missteps. People see about the losses. I know I have the ability to be a world champion and on May 29 that will start to show.”

On the veteran opponent, Rodriguez, Upsher said, “I know he is tough and from Mexico. I will look at a little film before the fight and go from there. I really don’t worry about what he will do. He should worry about me. This fight is redemption for me. It’s a start and then I would like to right all of the losses. But first I am looking for a dominant performance on Friday then I want to end all doubts.”

An outstanding undercard has been assembled.

In 6-round bouts:

Farah Ennis (21-2, 12 KO’s) of Philadelphia will fight Michael Gbenga (20-19, 20 KO’s) of Accra, Ghana in a Super Middleweight bout.

Atlantic City, NJ (May 20,2015)–This Friday night,May 22, boxing returns to the Claridge in Atlantic City with a full 9-bout card promoted by King’s Promotions in association with DeeLee Promotions.

Welterweight Bryant Perella will take part in his first eight-round bout when he takes on tough German Perez.

In the main event, undefeated super bantamweight Juan “Baby Tito” Dominguez will take on Mario Antonio Macias in a bout scheduled for 8-rounds.

Perella, 26 years-old of Lehigh Acres, Florida has a record of 8-0 with seven knockouts and has stopped five straight.

He already has quality victories over Benito Tovar (3-0-1), which was a first-round stoppage and his last bout when he stopped Justin Johnson in four rounds on February 20.

“Everything is good. I am going to make weight and take care of business,”said Perella when contacted on Tuesday.

“I know Perez is tough. He is 11-1 and from Mexico. I have not seen video on him but I am preparing for a rough fight. I know a lot of guys Tijuana come forward and are aggressive.”

Perella came from a quality amateur career where he went 70-9 and placed in quite a few national tournaments.

“I consider myself a smart boxer with speed and explosive power.”

Perella, who has already scored a stoppage win in Las Vegas, is excited to see action in the traditional east coast hotbed of boxing in Atlantic City.

“My first fight in Atlantic City is a dream come true. Next to Las Vegas it is the best place to fight and it motivated me throughout camp.”

In Perez, the fight is a step up as the Tijuana native is unbeaten in his last seven bouts and is already competed in an eight-round bout.

“For me to have my first eight round fight is a step up. This step up will really help me. I am going to relax and box then I will be able to break him down and get him out of there.”

Perella is dedicating the fight to 18-year old Devin Raynaer who recently passed away in a car accident.

“He was a friend of mine and I am dedicating this bout to him. I just want to thank my fans for supporting me and I am ready for an exciting fight.”
