For Brinkley the future is now

In his first fight since his 9th round TKO loss against IBF champion Lucian Bute in a world title shot last October, IBF #7 super middleweight Jesse Brinkley (35-6, 22 KOs) will try to get back into the title picture on Friday night at the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada. Brinkley faces undefeated Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (23-0, 17 KOs) in a clash for the vacant USBO belt.

“We don’t have time to rebuild. That’s why you have to take a fight with a top guy like Quillin,” stated the 35-year-old Brinkley. “I need this type of fight. If I beat Quillin, that can position me to another world title shot. I want to fight for a world title again. There is a lot on the line for me in this fight.”

Regarding his fight with Bute, Brinkley stated “I know I was an underdog, but I never imagined I would lose that fight. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I have to be back at that level.”
