Sohail Ahmad 5(1)-0-0 has been ruled out for the rest of the year with a hand injury sustained in his last fight against Kristian Dochev at the York Hall in October.
The Afghan light-welterweight impressed in East London on Saturday October 11 as he scored a clear points win over Kristian Dochev over four rounds.
The celebrations were slightly marred as Sohail dashed straight to hospital to have a hairline fracture treated.
Of his injury and subsequent ring absence, Ahmad commented, “I was in the flow, everything was flowing well so, yeah, it’s frustrating but I’ll be fighting in March, June, July and by the end of next season I should be at 8-0 and have a Masters title or something like that.”
Ahmad met with promoter Steve Goodwin this week to discuss future plans for 2015, Ahmad went on to say, “We’re looking at three more fights of six-rounders and then we’ll get a shot at a title and then I’ll go for the Southern Area. We are also in talks with people from Dubai in a televised show for a Pan-Asia WBC title or something similar, if it’s vacant then we can go for that.”
The Londoner optimistically concluded, “I’ll be back in sparring from January onwards and I’ll be mixing it up with the likes of Tyrone Nurse, Kid Galahad, Mitchell Smith, and others are lined up for the next fight. I’m at the level now where I need to be mixing it with these guys.”
