Ahmed Elbiali background 0.0 - Stanionis out, Elbiali added to Trout-Gasha main card

Elbiali is booked to fight this weekend as well

Welterweight prospect Eimantas Stanionis has injured his hand ahead of his planned appearance on the May 25th Austin Trout-Terrell Gausha PBC on FS1 main card. Former light heavyweight prospect prospect Ahmed Elbiali, whose fight with Marlos Simões was originally scheduled for the Prelims, has been bumped up as a result.

This will be Elbiali’s (18-1, 15 KO) second fight in two weeks, as he’s booked against Jaime Solorio this upcoming Saturday in Fairfax.

The Fox Sports 2 Prelim lineup now features Puerto Rican Olympian Oscar Negron (20-2, 16 KO) vs. former Luis Ortiz victim Daniel Martz (18-6-1, 15 KO) in the headlining fight, plus unbeaten Nigerian cruiserweight Efe Apochi (7-0, 7 KO) against Earl Newman (10-1-1, 7 KO) and Amon Rashidi (6-0, 4 KO) in what’s called a “four[-] or six-round welterweight attraction.”

In addition to Elbiali-Simoes (13-1-2, 5 KO), the main card includes Connecticut prospect Chordale Booker (14-0, 7 KO) against veteran Wale Omotoso (27-3, 21 KO).
