Omar Douglas: I expect an early night

Undefeated super featherweight contender Omar "Super O" Douglas (15-0, 11 KOs) will square off against Frank De Alba (17-1-2, 6 KOs) in the main event PBC on FS1 beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Tuesday, December 29 from Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Douglas is considered a rising prospect in the super featherweight division. De Alba will be no easy task for him as Douglas looks to move up the rankings.

"I've been working really hard and getting great work in camp," said Douglas. "It's an opportunity of a lifetime and I plan to take advantage of it. I know how to beat this guy and I know I am in great shape. I expect an early night, but if it goes 10 rounds, so be it."

"I am really grateful for this opportunity," said De Alba. "I've had to make a lot of sacrifices to get to this stage. Now that we're here, I'm going to take advantage. I know he is a strong fighter but we will be 100 percent come fight night. This will be an entertaining fight and I will give the fans what they pay for."
