BRUNSON AND QUARLES LOOKING FORWARD TO PHILLY SHOWDOWN

Press Release: Middleweight Tyrone Brunson is ready for his eight-round main event with Brandon Quarles on Saturday, March 11th at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia. The 32 year-old Brunson turned professional in 2005, and started his career with 19 consecutive first-round knockouts.  In his last bout, Brunson and Ismael Garcia fought to a ten-round draw on October 14, 2016 in Philadelphia. From Alexandria, Virginia, Quarles (18-3-1 with 9 KOs) has won five straight, the latest being a six-round unanimous decision over Marcos Primera on June 25th.

"My camp has been great," said Brunson (23-6-2 with 22 KOs).  "I don't know much about Quarles, but I am coming to work.  I don't know if he will be putting in the work that I will on March 11th."

Brunson, who a decade ago was destined for greatness, believes a win will put him right back in the mix for a title shot.

"This win would put me closer to my dream... I know something big will come after this. It is great to fight at home.  It puts me in a comfort zone to fight in front of my home crowd.  I want to thank King's Promotions for believing in me, and also want to thanks the fans of Philadelphia and around the world for sticking by me."

Quarles realizes what a win would do to kickstart his career. "A win would boost my career.  I am not just an opponent, I am a guy who comes to win.  I am ready for a solid fight, and show the people what I am all about.  I don't run my mouth, I let my fighting do the talking."

"My training has gone really well," said Quarles.  "I have seen Brunson fight on Showtime, and I haven't seen anything from him that is over my head.  This is a good fight for me.  I am going into his hometown as the B-Side on his promoters card, so I know what I have to do... He knows how to lose, and so do I, so we will see who wants it more on March 11th."
