@beadybea What is the latest on Dominic Breazeale, Trevor Byrant, Bogdan Dinu Christian Hammer, Guillermo Jones, Adam Kownacki, Sergey Kuzmin, Charles Martin, Carlos Negron, Oscar Rivas, Otto Wallin and Zhlila Zhang any updates would be welcome
Not much on any of those guys, sorry. I still think Kownacki vs Martin is set for August, I believe Kuzmin will rematch Mansour too but neither of those fights are official.

Wallin I think has dropped his EU title and will relocate to the US full time.

Rivas picked up a bicep injury in his last fight with Hubeaux so may face a little layoff.

All those are just stuff I heard though and I could be wrong.

Zhang is back on a Showtime card on 20th July vs TBA. No idea if he will be televised but if he is perhaps the level of opponent will go up.

You normally ask about Trevor Bryan and finally some news! He will face BJ Flores on 11th August.

Kabayel was set for a fight on 27th October, I had heard a rumour that his opponent could be Otto Wallin but I just checked and he’s not got any date on Boxrec so will keep my eyes peeled for that.

Kuzmin is in the US training and waiting on news of a fight. I expected him to be on the Bivol undercard but that’s looking unlikely now.

Schwarz will fight 11th September, they were supposed to announce an opponent last week but nothing yet.

Hammer has gone very quiet, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him be the opponent for either Schwarz or Kabayel though.

Yoka is banned for a year, I expect him to face Tronche for the French title on his return.

This is very exciting.

Wallen appears to be the real deal.
He could use a better jab, and maybe some variation in his offense, but he has serious natural gifts.
Speed, footwork, great defense. A future top ten, almost for certain.

Good move getting the heck out of Sveden.
Yah.

We're in disagreement on a few prospects and Wallin is one of them! That's great though and I'd rather you were right on him than I am.

I assume that f he did so, he'd lose his license to ever fight in France again.

Of course, that may not really be much of a penalty, in the long run.
Why would he lose his French license?

You do perplex me you know.

My guess is that, if team Wilder is stupid enough to sign a contract with Fury, the Big Dufus will almost surely pull out at the last minute with an "injury."

So Breazealle had better be keeping in shape. He also better get his head together:

The Breazealle that beat Ugonoh is a serious threat to Wilder. (To anybody.)
The Breazealle that we've usually seen over the years, taking 3-4 rounds to wake up, will get put to sleep early. Like Aj taking out Prince Charles.

Oleksandr Teslenko has a fight on August 18.

His opponent doesn't look like much, sadly, so yet another wasted opportunity for the EXTREMELY promising Teslenko to learn something.
Still, worth watching. This guy reminds me quite a bit of Ali. Nice & relaxed, great head slips ....

What the heck is going on with Tyrone Spong? The guy has all sort of potential, but he fought in Feb, and still doesn't have another bout scheduled for this year.

It's not like they have time to waste. The guy is almost 33 years old already. I guess this is what happens when you're managed by the dream team of Gonzalez & Silva, and your promoter is some guy named Andy Perez.
