TONIGHT ON FOX SPORTS 1: AHMED ELBIALI GOES FOR WIN #15

Press Release: Light heavyweight Ahmed Elbiali (14-0) faces Brazil's Jackson Junior (20-8) in an eight-round fight to be aired on tonight (Tuesday's) edition of Premier Boxing Champions Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes. Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT from the the Fitz Tunica Casino & Hotel in Tunica, Mississippi. The show will be headlined by Sergiy Derevyanchenko battling Kemahl Russell in a ten-round middleweight bout. Here is what Elbiali had to say ahead of the showdown:
 
On fighting on FS1...
"It's a great situation to be fighting on national television. Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays has been great for all boxers who are fortunate enough to be showcased.  I'm just grateful for the opportunity and everyone tuning in will see me throwing a lot of big shots."
 
On his current training camp ...
"It's been a real smooth camp going into this fight.  I'm back training in Miami with my coach Carlos Albuerae.  When I moved to Las Vegas, we had temporally split up, but now we are back together, stronger than ever."
 
On facing opponent Jackson Junior...
"Jackson Junior is a big puncher, as am I, so expect to see some hard blows being traded.  Although he's had more fights then me, I feel I'm on another level.  I know he's coming to knock me out, but I have other plans. He will not be taken lightly."
 
On his goal of a world title...
"If I want to continue marching up the rankings, coming out victorious against Junior is crucial. The ultimate goal is to win a world title, and I'm going to do everything in my power to get there.  This fight is the next step toward achieving that goal.  I'm not leaving any stone unturned."
 
On bouncing back from an injured hand...
"It was a difficult time for me being out of the ring for over a year with my hand injury.  The good news is I'm 100% healthy and my hand feels great.  I had a lot of time to reflect on what I need to improve on so that's what I focused on while I was out.  I stayed in great shape the whole time.  I just want to get in the ring and shake off the rust."
