Lorenzo Jabs Barker, Murray, Quillin: Targets Andy Lee

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Three-time world title challenger Giovanni “EL Chico Malo” Lorenzo has read the reports of so-called contenders turning down the opportunity to face Ireland’s middleweight contender Andy Lee at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, March 17th and is chomping at the bit to get in the ring with that country’s favorite son on St. Patrick’s Day.

Said the appalled Lorenzo, “All these so-called contenders not interested in fighting Andy Lee on St. Patrick’s Day in New York City. They should look in the mirror. Martin Murray, Darren Barker, Peter Quillin. Real fighters fight. That’s what I’ve done my entire career, I’ve gone to Europe three times to face world champions and they’re afraid to come to New York City and fight at Madison Square Garden, ‘The Mecca of Boxing.’”

“I live in the Bronx and would be happy to fight in New York City against Lee. I’m sure he’ll have a big crowd on St. Patrick’s Day but I’ll also have a tremendous amount of support from the Dominicans and boxing fans in the area. Fans here have seen me fight, they know I’ll bring it right to Lee from the opening bell.”

Continued Lorenzo, “I’m sure HBO is looking for a real fight for their viewers, that’s what they get with Andy and I.  I’m very familiar with him, but he’s never been in a true contender like me.  Vera and McEwan aren’t in my league. If Lee wants a real challenge, I’m more than happy to give it to him. In face I’d love to knock out an Irishman on St. Patrick’s Day.”

“Madison Square Garden and HBO a great event on December 3rd. Put Andy Lee and I in the ring together on March 17th and they’ll get more of the same. “

The 31-year old Lorenzo has compiled a record of 31-4-0 with twenty-three knockouts over his ten-year professional career. A native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, he has lived and trained in the New York City area since turning professional.

Known for his colorful, fan friendly, all-action fights, Lorenzo has faced the best fighters in Europe over the last few years, Germany’s Felix Sturm and Sebastian Sylvester along with France’s Hassan N’Dam N’JIkam.

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;11648474]That's complete and utter bull****. Qullin fought Echols almost 10 years after Hopkins did way past his prime. Quillin was the underdog? Echols was clearly there to be fed to the younger guy as a showcase fight.[/QUOTE] I hope you…
