LOS ANGELES (December 29, 2015) – Undefeated 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (16-0, 14 KOs) and hard-hitting southpaw Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (22-1-1, 16 KOs) will meet in a 10-round heavyweight showdown as part of primetime action on Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on FOX Saturday, January 23at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.
PBC on FOX action begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and is headlined by undefeated Danny “Swift” Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) and former world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KOs) in a 12-round welterweight showdown and features Undefeated rising star Sammy “The Sergeant” Vasquez (20-0, 14 KOs) taking on Los Angeles-native Aron Martinez (20-4-1, 4 KOs).
“This is a great opportunity for me and I’m definitely going to make the most of it,” said Breazeale. “Fighting at STAPLES Center in primetime is a dream come true. I’m a California guy and I know I have to put on a big show to make a name for myself. I want to be a world champion and Amir Mansour is standing in my way.”
“I can’t wait to put on a show January 23,” said Amir Mansour. “As a fighter, I am very humbled and appreciative to be apart of PBC on FOX debut.

“Dominic Breazeale vs. Amir Mansour is an excellent addition to the two welterweight battles already announced for January 23,” said Tom Brown of TGB Promotions. “The heavyweight division is back on the rise and will continue to be in 2016.

With recent upsets taking place and pivotal fights on the way in the heavyweight division, Breazeale and Mansour have an opportunity to insert themselves into the world title conversation with an impressive victory on January 23rd.
Since representing the U.S. at the 2012 Olympics, Breazeale has steadily improved and moved up the pro rankings. The 6-foot-7, 30-year-old has only gone the distance twice, including his last start when he won a 10-round unanimous decision over the tough, battled-tested Fred Kassi. The win over Kassi was Breazeale’s third of 2015 after stopping Victor Bisbal in March and Yasmany Consuegra in June. Before switching to boxing, Breazeale was a quarterback at the University of Northern Colorado.
An exciting pressure fighter, the 6-foot-1 slugger Mansour is experienced and primed for an opportunity at the best in the division. He went 20-0 before losing a 10-round decision to Steve Cunningham in a fight in April 2014 in which he dropped the former cruiserweight world champion twice. In his next start, Mansour knocked out Kassi in the seventh round. In 2015, he outpointed Joey Dawejko across 10 rounds in May and fought to a draw against unbeaten Gerald Washington in October.

“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.”

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.

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.
