“I’m looking forward to stepping into the ring with Amir Mansour,” said Washington. “This is my time to make a statement. I will make an example of Amir Mansour to let the heavyweight division know that there’s a new sheriff in town. No more ‘Mr. Nice Guy’, it’s time for me to bring the pain!”
“Gerald Washington has not even come close to fighting someone of my caliber,” said Mansour. “He has zero advantage except for height and I’m experienced enough to take that away. The match against me is going to introduce Washington to an entirely new world of fighting and I’m sure he isn’t prepared for this type of fight.”

“We’re very excited to return to the Little Creek Resort Casino with this outstanding card,” said Tom Brown of TGB Promotions. “Washington and Hunter are two of the brightest rising stars on the American heavyweight scene and Elbiali is one of the best light heavyweight prospects in boxing.”
A two-way player (tight end and defensive end) at the University of Southern California, Washington spent time with the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills practice squads on his unconventional path that led him to boxing. The 33-year-old also worked in the Navy as a helicopter mechanic before going to USC and did not get his start in professional boxing until 2012. Fighting out of San Jose, California, he is yet to lose in his latest endeavor and most recently defeated Jason Gavern in March and will be facing his toughest competition against Mansour.
An exciting pressure fighter out of Wilmington, Delaware, Mansour looks for his third straight victory on October 13. The 43-year-old owns victories over Dominick Guinn, Epifanio Mendoza and Kelvin Price. His last two outings ended with an impressive knockout of Fred Kassi and a victory over Joey Dawejko.
Since turning professional in early 2013 following the London Olympic Games, the 27-year-old Hunter, fighting out of Las Vegas, NV, has continued to shine. With three victories in 2015, the last two by knockout he will be looking to march again into the win column.
A native of Cairo, Egypt now residing in Miami, FL the 24-year-old Elbiali makes a quick return to the ring following a first round knockout of Fabiano Peno on Tuesday, September 8 at the debut of FS1’s TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS at the Hollywood, Palladium.
