Ahmed Elbiali Back in Action on 1/12, PBC Bill in San Antonio

MIAMI, FL- After a fantastic 2015 where he went 5-0, unbeaten light-heavyweight prospect, Ahmed Elbiali (13-0, 11 KOs) makes his 2016 debut against Andrew Hernandez (10-3-1, 2 KOs) on January 12, 2016 at the Cowboys Dance Hall in San Antonio, Texas.  Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) "Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays" on FS1 and BOXEO DE CAMPEONES on FOX Deportes will televise the 8-round bout beginning at 11PM ET / 8PM PT live on Fox Sports 1.

Known for having power in both hands, Elbiali is looking toward another spectacular year in 2016.  Already on the fast track to the top of the 175-pound division, Elbiali reflects on his career and future plans.

"2015 was incredible for me and I'm very excited about the upcoming year," said Ahmed Elbiali. "Preparing for fights is getting easier.  My trainer and I are working on all my strengths and weaknesses'.  There are areas that I need to improve on and other areas that I need to sharpen up.  A few months ago, I got some good work with Andre Ward, so my confidence is at an all-time high.  He's a remarkable fighter and I learned a lot being out there in Oakland.  I feel 2016 will be my year to shine and I can't wait to be back in the ring fighting on Fox Sports."

With his opponent now set, Elbiali is going into this fight with a focused mindset.  The Elbiali vs. Hernandez bout will be part of the televised portion of the fight card, headlined by Miguel Flores (18-0, 9 KOs) vs. Mario Briones (27-4-2, 20 KOs).

"I don't know much about Hernandez but I'm training like it's the most important fight of my career." Elbiali continued. "Anytime I fight on television, it's an opportunity to build on my fan base, so I'm coming to impress.  At this point in my career, there is no room for error, so I must be mentally prepared to fight any style that comes my way. Some guys like to bang and some guys like to box.  I'll be ready for everything.
