Is it just the clothing, or does Ruiz Jr. look in a bit better shape than normal? He's down to fight Dimitrenko next month.
Yeah he's been working on it - I think it's finally clicked with him that it will help.

@beadybea What is the latest on Trevor Byran , Ali Eren Demirezu, Alexander Frank, Kyotaro Fujimoto, Robert Helenius Hugie Fury, Filip Hrgovic, Marko Huck, Micheal Hunter Petar Milas, Alexander Povetkin, Tony Yoka, Junlong Zhang, Zhlila Zhang and Olexandr Zakzozhyi any updates would be welcome
Fury - looks like he's dropping the British title due to injury - I'd expect the eye hasn't fully healed.
Hrgovic - I expect he'll be on the Matchroom show in Chicago.
Hunter - will probably face Takam next or one of the other Matchroom fighters.
Milas - will face Cyril Leonet for Wallin's EU title on 6th April
Povetkin - on that Matchroom Chicago show, probably not against Usyk.
Yoka - back in July - will get news on an opponent soon. He wanted Duhaupas that might not happen next but by the end of the year.
JLZ - His fight is Australia was cancelled because his opponent's visa was refused. I expect news soon, possibly an overseas fight.

WTF happened to Ivan Dychko? Fucking monster prospect, but I don't think he fights often enough. As in for this stage in his career. He has nothing lined up that I know of according to BoxRec at least.

Geez that's right. The guy has crazy natural gifts, and not really that old yet.


Another lost soul is Izuagbe Ugonoh. He hasn't fought in 10 months, with nothing scheduled.
At least he got away from that fraud, Kevin Barry.


And still no word about Trey Lippe Morrison.

Speaking of "why haven't we heard from them?" - What the heck happened to Andre Wawrzyk?

He hasn't fought since 2016. Still suspended?

Martin Bakole Llunga faces Marious Wach on April 6th, in Poland.

That's an interesting fight. Hope it's televised.
-------------

Oleksandr Teslenko fights some cabbie on March 29th, in Canada.

Otto Wallin's fighting "some guy" on April 13th.

Peter Milas is fighting "some other guy" on April 6th.

Dychko is just suffering from bad/no promotion - he was caught up in some con promotion a couple of years back and is now just with heavyweight factory as far as I know - he's still getting good training and I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign for someone very soon.

Ugonoh was set to fight but I think he had the same trainer as Szpilka and he died recently. He's working with Jonathan Banks now and I'd expect to see him out very soon.

Jeez, still absolutely nothing scheduled for Ugohnoh! His last fight was in May 2018, and he only fought twice in two years.

I hope this guy isn't losing the best years of his career, due to lousy management.

Why don't you give this thing called "Google" a whirl?

Have you seen the rumour that Joyce vs Dubois is signed?
Yeah good fight if it happens. Joyce is relentless but very hittable. I'd say it's a case of whether or not DD can KO him before he gasses and Joyce takes him into deep water.
