Minto to cruiserweight?

"I'll pick on guys my own size in 2010."

After a valiant performance Saturday on HBO against Chris Arreola (28-1, 25 KOs), WBO#5 Brian “The Beast” Minto (34-3) says he prefers to fight boxers his size in the future. “It’s extremely difficult giving up 45 pounds in a fight,” stated Minto. “Arreola was too big for me, and it showed. I’ll pick on guys my own size in 2010.” Arreola, 6’4, weighed 263, while Minto, 5’11, tipped the scales at 218 pounds. Although at a significant size disadvantage, Minto displayed immense heart and could be very dangerous in a smaller weight class. “As far as a move to cruiserweight, I can definitely make the 200 pound weight limit,” he said. “However, there are only a few cruisers who I’d be interested in boxing – Marco Huck (27-1), B.J. Flores (24-0-1), Zsolt Erdei (31-0), Danny Green (28-3) or Firat Arslan (29-4).” His manager, Pat Nelson added “Unless Minto lands a major cruiserweight fight or a heavyweight bout under 225 pounds against Ruslan Chagaev (25-1-1), Tomasz Adamek (39-1) or Denis Boytsov (26-0), he plans on defending his WBO NABO heavyweight title sometime in April, possibly against Tony Grano (16-1-1) who is also around 220 pounds.”
