Minto states, "I'll be a free agent in October, and I'm looking to fight whoever can get me closer to a world title shot, even if that means going to Europe. I've become fully consumed with bringing all heavyweight belts back to the United States- where they belong. I won't let anyone stand in my way."
Minto's manager, Pat Nelson, adds," Brian will fight anyone and has proven to be an exciting and skillful boxer in televised fights against solid competition. In fact, Minto's last 10 opponents have a combined record of 252-71." Minto is best known for his HBO PPV and ESPN2 destructions of Vinnie Maddalone (27-3) of New York, and for beating Billy Zumbrun (20-7) and Danny Batchelder (24-2) in separate ESPN televised bouts.
