Jarrell Miller I think is facing Trevor Bryan on the Matchroom show in Brooklyn on 28th April
Andy Ruiz Jr faces Devin Vargas on the ESPN show on 10th March
Jennings faces Akhror Muralimov on the Beltran vs Moses undercard.
Yoka out again in Paris on 7th April
Pulev not injured - definitely back in training
Rivas vs looking less likely to face Duhaupas now.

No further news on any of the others as far as I'm aware.

Miller's latest opponent rumour is Duhaupas (the Bryan fight still possible but negotiating with Don King is awkward)
Kabayel will probably defend his Euro title again - I believe Dimitrenko is mandatory challenger
Kuzmin I think will fight again on the next on the Bivol undercard on 3rd March - they wanted Miller, maybe the Mansour reatch can happen (depending on cuts healing).

Pretty much nothing new on anyone else since last time as far as I'm aware. Oquendo's focus recently seems to be helping out in Peurto Rico and not on boxing as far as I can see.

There are about 15 HW prospect & contenders right now that I keep a strong eye on.

I just went through the list using Boxrec, and it's almost like an episode of "The Twilight Zone." Only two of them have anything scheduled at all, and several haven't fought at all for several years.

The good:

Tyrone Spong vs Carlos Nascimento Feb 24th.
- A decent opponent for a promising prospect who's fast running out of time.

Martin Bakole Llunga vs TBA March 3rd. Likely a horrible mismatch, but at least Bakole is staying active.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Some of the others:

Bogdan Dinu - Just beat Nascimento in December, so OK. But nothing scheduled for 2018.

Oscar Rivas - Nada.

Otto Wallen. - No sirree.

Izuagbe Ugonoh - Hasn’t fought for a year.

Nick Asberry - hasn’t fought since Oct 2016 !

Andre Wawrzyk - Hasn’t fought since Sept 2016 !

Trey Lippe Morrison - hasn’t fought since December 2016 !

Andy Ruiz - Hasn’t fought since his robbery against Parker. Has he retired?




I mean, WTF ????????

Good fight. I think Miller is at least a level above Duhaupus. I don't think Miller is good, but I think he's a little better than Duhaupus. Man, he looked like dogshit against shot-to-shit one-armed Wach, though.
Yeah he looked terrible made Wach look fast, I think Miller, Whyte, Chisora and Stiverne are all on the same level

I think Breazeale and Duhaupus could be abit above

Spot on.

And none of those guys, except maybe Breazeale, even make me want to watch their fights.

It's positively dismal.

Wallin will fight Granat next, Ugonoh will make his comeback in Poland soon, Lippe has been injured, I presume Wawrzyk got a ban and Ruiz has a fight lined up in March.

That's decent news, (and I believe you) but how do you know all this?

Nothing is on Boxrec, and I haven't seen any articles in the more standard places.


Oh - And if Ugonoh is fighting in Poland, does that mean (one can dream...) that he's left Kevin Barry?

Here’s the link to the Ugonoh interview.

Thanks. Interesting interview, though he says nothing about any upcoming fights, nor about his management. He does mention the possibility of staying and competing in Poland though.

I also can't find anything about an Andy Ruiz fight, though he was originally supposed to fight on last week's card. No idea why that fell apart, either. If he's really fighting next month, it will probably be some TBA, to get his feet wet again. Still, it's always interesting to see what condition Andy shows up in.


Wallin- Granat is a good one. I really like what I've seen of Wallin so far. Don't know a lot about Granat but he definitely can bang, so it's a good test for Wallin's defense. I think some silly title is on the line as well, which is always good for positioning future fights.

There’s another one, sorry. Ugonoh & Wach will be on the same card but not against each other sadly.

Otto Wallen is indeed now scheduled to face Adrian Granat on April 21, for the vacant EBU title. (such as it is.)

This could actually be a great fight, and an important one, looking forward. Granat got caught by Dimintrenko, but he also has some decent wins on his record, and he can definitely bang.

A great test for the highly-regarded Wallin.
