Bute-Brinkley April 17th?

Super middleweight Jesse Brinkley (35-5, 23 KOs), fresh off of his impressive IBF title eliminator victory over fellow contender Curtis Stevens (21-3, 15 KOs), now appears like he will meet IBF champion Lucian Bute April 17th in Montreal, Canada. Brinkley first came to prominence stemming from his stint on the 2006 nationally televised ‘Contender’ series television show. Afterwards Brinkley signed with Let’s Get it on Promotions LLC which is run by legendary referee Mills Lanes’ sons Terry and Tommy. The company is based out of Reno, Nevada which is the hometown of Brinkley as well. Taking over for their father in 2007, their success with Brinkley and their company in general is a feel good story in boxing as well. In a very short period of time they have moved Brinkley’s career brilliantly as he is now on the brink of a world title fight. There is a possibly the bout could be shown opposite of the proposed bout of WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly ‘The Ghost’ Pavlik (36-1, 32 KOs) vs WBC Interim junior middleweight champion Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez (44-2-2, 24 KOs), of Argentina which could land in Atlantic City the same night. HBO would likely televise on split sites.
