Joel Brunker Seeks World Title Shot

NEW JERSEY (August 27, 2013) – Gary Shaw Productions featherweight contender, Australia’s Joel Brunker (27-0, 15 KOs), feels he’s ready to challenge any of the champions in his division. Currently undefeated, Brunker has been steadily climbing up the rankings in all sanctioning organizations. Brunker is rated No. 4 WBO, No. 6 IBF, No. 13 WBA, and No. 15 WBC respectively.

“I’m ready to fight for a world title,” said Brunker. “I’ve fought many styles as I worked my way up the rankings. In those fights I’ve gained a lot of experience. My skills have enhanced tremendously and I feel confident in my ability to capture a world title.”

Known for his vicious body attack, promoter Gary Shaw believes Brunker has the style to beat any of the current champions.

“Joel Brunker is a tremendous fighter.” Shaw said. “He’s improved immensity in the last few years. He’s got a great chin and he’s a powerful puncher. His body shots wear down his opponents and I feel he’s ready to take his career to the next level. I’ll be talking with my co-promoter Ace Boxing’s Angelo DiCarlo to see what we can do to get Brunker a title shot. He’s ready.”

Brunker hosts his training camps in Las Vegas where he’s been getting great sparring for his fights. The move has given him extra confidence.

“Since I moved my training camps to Las Vegas, I’ve been getting good sparring with all the top guys,” Brunker stated. “The work I’m getting is second to none. When you spar with the best fighters in the world, you’re bound to get better. I’m extremely happy with my promoters Gary Shaw and Angelo DiCarlo for all their hard work. I trust they will do their best to put me in the best possible position to fight for a world title.”
