Eisa Aldah carries UAE hopes in Dubai fight night

The Emirati is the lone UAE boxer on the seven-card Dubai International Boxing Championship at the Dubai World Trade Center on February 18.

Eisa Aldah will be carrying the UAE flag at the Dubai International Boxing Championship when he takes on Spaniard Ignasi Cabellero Parez in the seven-card fight night at the Dubai World Trade Center on February 18.

Aldah, who has a record of six wins and two defeats, will be the lone Emirati boxer at the Championship, which will see the unbeaten American Brad Solomon take on Victor Correa of Mexico and a host of other boxers from the Middle East.

"I will fight for the UAE and I will do my best to win the bout," said Aldah. "I have been training hard and I believe you will see a better boxer this time, a new style."
