CEBU CITY—ALA Promotions will make its initial foray in the United States this October to  pave the way for a scheduled four-fight card next year.

Michael Aldeguer, president of the country’s top boxing outfit, bared this to Manila-based scribes Friday during a dinner at the family rest house in Danao City he and father Tony tendered for WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel and officials involved in Pinoy Pride 31: Clash of World Champions slated here last night.

Among those expected to be included in ALA’s card in the US set at Stubhub Center in Carson, California, is Mark Magsayo who was fighting Mexican Rafael Reyes for the International Boxing Federation Youth featherweight title last night.

The younger Aldeguer said the StubHub event will likely be billed as Filipinos Contra Latinos to generate international interest.

FEATURED STORIES

Next year, ALA will go full blast in the US with three fight cards preceding a major promotion that will be aired through TFC (The Filipino Channel) and Sports PPV (pay-per-view).
