Stepping off the a plane from his training camp in Rhode Island, with his trainer Peter Manfredo Sr., Brinkley declared himself ready for war, “We had a terrific camp, Mr. Manfredo did a great job setting everything up. The sparring partners were perfect for this fight.”
“I’m glad to be back in Northern Nevada , it will be nice to see my kids and family who I’ve been away from since Christmas. Saturday night will be a special night for fight fans in Northern Nevada , not so special for Joey Gilbert” stated Brinkley.
Said Gilbert, who trained in the Reno area for the fight, “As much as I love finishing up a tough training camp because it's finally time to fight and reap the rewards of my hard work; I miss the disciplined and rigorous workouts and my jam packed schedule. It's something I adapt and look forward to as I prepare for each fight. For me, each day is another challenge of how hard I can push myself, and what limitations I can break or conquer.”
“I have nothing to say about my opponent from Yerington as I'm sure he'll talk enough for the both of us as he usually does, but come Saturday night it's no longer a war or words... I look forward to that, this is my town.”
