Yerington's Brinkley Calling Out All 168-Pounders

By  | 

Reno, NV (October 12th, 2009) - World ranked supper middleweight, Jesse Brinkley, is calling everyone out at 168 lbs.

“I want Green, Bika, Bute, Stieglitz...and everyone else in the division.” Says Brinkley. “I would love to fight all of the guys in Showtime's super-six tournament too, but they are all locked up until 2012.”

Brinkley has been on a two-year tear. He is 8-0 (5 KOs) since June of 2007. Within that time, he became the WBC USNBC super middleweight champion with a spectacular eleventh round knockout over Otis Griffin. He dominated his cross-town rival, Joey Gilbert, this Valentines Day in what turned out to be the biggest fight to take place in Reno, NV in decades. And he is coming off of a terrific performance against top Baltimore super middleweight Mike Paschall in July; which resulted in a unanimous decision victory.

In a career that has spanned over twelve years, the 32 year-old Brinkley compiled a record of 34-5 with 22 knockouts.

“Jesse Brinkley is one of the best super middleweights in the world and he deserves a shot at a world title.” Says Let’s Get It On Promotions’ Terry Lane. “We’ve discussed big fights for Jesse with several promoters, but the other fighters, promoters, and managers always pass him up for an easier option. That is terrible for boxing.”

“I am just shy of 40 pro fights.” Added Brinkley. “Bute has 24, Froch has 25…and they are champions! I’ve had ups and downs in my career, but who doesn’t? I’ve passed the test of time and it’s my turn to get a shot!”

Jesse Brinkley is currently rated #5 by the IBF, #9 by the WBC, and #13 by boxrec.

Reno, Nevada based "Let's Get It On" Promotions was founded in 2000 by legendary boxing referee Mills Lane. In early 2005 he was joined by sons Terry and Tommy in the operations of the company. Along with super middleweight contender Jesse Brinkley, Let's Get It On Promotions also promotes middleweight prospect Brandon Gonzales, lightweight contender Rustam Nugaev, sensational lightweight prospect Bayan Jargal and highly regarded brothers Tyler and Derek Hinkey.
