Ahmed Elbiali Focused To Continue His Knockout Streak

MIAMI, FLORIDA - Undefeated light-heavyweight prospect, Ahmed Elbiali (8-0, 8 KOs) will square off against unbeaten Dustin Craig Echard (10-0, 6 KOs), this Friday February 6, 2015, at Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.  The 6-round bout will open up the telecast on ESPN "Friday Night Fights".

In his last fight, a bout that was shown on ESPN "Friday Night Fights", Ahmed showed great power, dropping his opponent Lawrence Blakey three times before the referee stopped fight at the 1:44 mark of round three.  Known for having heavy hands, Elbiali is a knockout artist who will look to extend on his KO streak.

"I want to continue to get better with each fight," said Elbiali. "I'm always throwing hard punches and the knockouts are happening.  I don't want to rely on my power every time I step in the ring.  I know if I start head hunting then I'll be doing myself a disservice.  I want to keep improving on my body punching and head movement.  If I see my opponent is in trouble, then that's when I'll try to end the fight."

Advised by Al Haymon, Elbiali feels he has what it takes to become something special in the cruiserweight division.  With a few more victories, Ahmed sees himself fighting for a regional title.

"I know with Al Haymon steering me in the right direction, I can become a household name in this sport," Ahmed continued. "If I can have a strong outing in 2015, I know there will be opportunities for me to capture the fans attention.  I just want to keep fighting on a regular basis and make some noise in the light-heavyweight division."
