Cruiserweight prospect Dan 'Bada Bing' Biddle and his manager Tommy Barnes have called out USBA Cruiserweight champion Garrett Wilson for a future matchup. Biddle looked impressive recently in winning a majority decision over Philadelphia veteran Pedro Martinez at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on July 7, 2012. Biddle, whose record now stands at 9-2 (5), Wilmington, Delaware, had to fight Martinez at heavyweight instead of cruiserweight when Martinez weighed in at 210 pounds.

"Garrett Wilson is a short puncher who stands in front of you, throws wide punches and misses. I can beat him if Peltz Boxing gives me the opportunity. Wilson is slow, and after awhile he gets tired. I knew Pedro Martinez would get tired. I was waiting for my second wind. I could tell by the way Pedro was throwing; his one punch arm punches were coming in behind me. My right uppercut was getting him good."

Dan Biddle's trainer, Tommy Barnes, predicted his fighter Biddle will beat USBA cruiserweight champion Garrett Wilson if given the chance. Barnes hopes promoter Russell Peltz will give Biddle a USBA cruiserweight title shot in the near future. According to Barnes, "We could use one or two more tune up fights before taking on Garrett Wilson, but we definitely will talk and want the fight. To beat Garrett Wilson, Dan needs sparring partners who are short guys that fight like Wilson, stand in front of Dan and throw punches wide. Given the chance to fight Wilson, Dan will create angles and outbox him. Dan Biddle will beat Garrett Wilson!"
