Brinson Defends State Title Against Medina
Top Middleweights Nick “Machine Gun” Brinson (13-1-2 6kos) and upset-minded Jose “Stinger” Medina 17-12-1 (7kos) prepare to enter into battle on an ARES Fight Night X Thursday April 25 at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. Brinson is defending the New York State Middleweight Title at 160 pounds. The 10-round fight looks to be an explosive main event on an exciting fight card, with both guys confident about a win.
Brinson (Rochester, NY) is coming off a streak of wins including an ESPN Friday night appearance against Jason Escalera 13-0-1 (12 kos) in which he fought to an impressive draw. Brinson fought skillfully throughout but had trouble in the later rounds that cost him the win.
“All in all, the Escalera fight put me on the map as a legitimate prospect. After defeating Medina, I plan on taking a shot at something big,” said Brinson. “I’m not looking past Medina, but I expect my skill level and hand speed will be too much for him,” he added. “As usual, I’m not trying to go ten, I’d like to get him out by the 7th.”
Medina (Quincy, Mass) is coming off of a few close losses to elite level fighters, recently going ten with world ranked Fernando Guerrero. “I was elusive in that fight, but couldn’t mount the offensive attack that I’m capable of,” said Medina, “With Brinson, I expect to break him down over the first eight rounds and finish him late,” he added. “Brinson doesn’t have the experience or stamina to be in the ring with me and don’t forget I’m undefeated in Albany.”
Puerto Rican prospect Vincent Miranda 15-1 (9kos) will face off against power puncher Brian “The Bull” Barbosa (Providence, RI) 31-6 (23kos) in the 8 round co-feature. Both guys are coming off impressive knockout wins and the come forward styles should result in a tough fought battle in the trenches.
The undercard features local female standout Sarah Kuhn and a local matchup of pro debuts Joe Gbolo and Rigoberto Miranda.
“I’m excited to bring boxing fans our best fight card ever and an extremely high level and explosive main event and co-feature,” said Adam Neary, President of ARES Promotions. “Once again, we plan on providing an excellent night of entertainment for sports enthusiasts in the Capital District.”
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the first bout begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door or at aresboxing.com or call the ARES ticket office at (518) 527-2331. Title sponsors include Tierra Farm and Tierra Coffee Roasters. DePaula Chevrolet is a gold sponsor for the event.
