Ty Brunson aims to build on Kermit Cintron win against Manny Woods

Ringside 28/11/2017

Brunson of Philadelphia will first need to get past Manny Woods this Friday night at the 2300 Arena in the ten-round main event of a loaded 12 bout card that is promoted by King’s Promotions.

The 32 year-old is coming off the biggest when of his career when he stopped former two-time world champion Kermit Cintron in five rounds. The sure-fire Philadelphia Fight of the Year saw Brunson climb off the canvas twice before dropping Cintron three times in the pivotal round five.

“The fight fight gave me a lot of confidence,” said Brunson. “To do what I did against Cintron who is a two-time world champion. I am ready for Friday night.”

Despite not having a lot of knowledge of Woods, Brunson expects a great performance.

“I really don’t much about him, but I am not overlooking him. I have had a great training camp, and now I am just winding it down.”

“I am looking for a big year in 2018. With a win on Friday, I am looking to face someone in the top ten or top fifteen, but the goal is to be number-one in this stacked division. I just want to thank my promoter King’s Promotions, the fans who have stuck by me, and even all the critics to that know that Tyrone Brunson is coming.”
