“This will be another step toward my goal of becoming one of the top middleweights in the division,” Brewart Jr. stated. “This will be my fourth undefeated fighter that I’ll be facing in my career, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. These are the type of fights I need to win to get me ranked. I’m expecting a tough fight with Joeshon James, and the fans will be witnessing a great performance by me. My goal is to break him down and take him out in the later rounds.”
“Brewart Jr. is a good fighter, but he’s not on my level,” said Joeshon James. “I know he’ll be fighting in front of his hometown fans, but that has only motivated me to train harder, as I know I’ll be going to battle in hostile territory. No disrespect, but I’m going to win this fight and give Brewart Jr. his first loss.”
