Gilbert Getting Ready For Reno Showdown With Brinkley

Super middleweight contender Joey Gilbert has opened camp in San Diego in preparation for his Valentine's Day bout with Jesse Brinkley at the Reno Events Center.

“I’ve trained here numerous times, the weather and the facilities are very conducive to a great camp,” said Gilbert.

Gilbert has been training rigorously since September.

“I knew this fight was on the horizon back then and have been training in San Diego and Big Bear. Now we’ll focus more on Brinkley and preparing for what we need to do to be successful on February 14th," said Gilbert.

Tickets to the fight are on sale at the Reno Events Center.

Doors open at 6pm with the first bell at 7.
