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.

I think the only reason he woke up fast in the Ugonoh fight is because Ugonoh is a fucking effective alarm clock.
You're never getting a couple rounds to get started against that fucker.
He came steaming out and just happened to run head long into one right hardy bastard.

I think Wilder would be cautious knowing Breazeale has shown he is no knock over job. He will likely bide his time looking for the big shot later in the fight. If Breazeale starts slow, he loses. If he needs someone to start like Ugonoh to wake him up...then he's probably lost already

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.
He'll fight Francisco Silvens (who has a padded 23-0 record) in Mexico on 31st August

If Fury-Wilder get in the ring together if Tysons fit and there mentally, he will box Wilders head off for him imo, even at this point

I heard Breazeale was willing to fight Whyte or the other way around. I read in another forum that Wallin and Kabayel are in talks to fight. No idea if this is true or not, though. Take it with a grain of salt.

Didn’t realise CHB was back online guys!

Breazeale - ready to fight, think he’s hoping Fury vs Wilder doesn’t happen.

Dinu - think he may be on the Pulev vs Fury undercard.

Fujimoto - will face Suthat Kalalek on 25th September.

Kabayel - set to fight on 27th October, haven’t heard any new rumours other than Otto Wallin as the opponent but wouldn’t bet on that happening next.

Kuzmin - will be on the Povetkin vs Joshua undercard. Opponent won’t be Price or Allen, really not sure who he might fight - maybe Takam but again would not bet on that.

Rivas - will fight on Stevenson vs Gvozdyk undercard in Canada. Not getting my hopes up for anything other than a journeyman but they are building a fight with Kean for the future (think I’d back Kean in that one).

Zhang - will fight in China against Don Haynesworth soon. Has recently extended his deal with Roc Nation and I would expect to see him on those US based Matchroom/DAZN shows soon.

Didn't realise this was made.
Stevenson actually facing his dangerous mandatory

I really like the look of Gvozdyk and thing he might even be the pick of the bunch in a stacked LHW division just now
Hope he spanks fuck out of Stevenson

That's a great matchup.

I also rate Gvozdyk very highly. I think he'll take this, if he doesn't do anything stupid.

Bogdan Dinu – I’m expecting him to be on the Pulev vs Fury card – I certainly hope so as I’ll be attending that one!
Agit Kabayel – fighting 27th October. Not heard anything new on the opponent, maybe Wallin but I’m not hopeful this time.
Junlong Zhang – his inactivity lately has been due to “secret training” with Evander Holyfield according to reports in China.
Oscar Rivas – set to fight again on 1st December.
Kyotaro Fujimoto – aiming for the WBA regular shot against Oquendo or a WBO eliminator next

Nothing noteworthy on any of the others you mentioned as far as I know.

A few other bits & pieces from the division…

Artur Szpilka vs Mariusz Wach 10th November
Christian Hammer vs Michael Wallisch 15th December
Zhilei Zhang in a step up fight in Monaco 24th November
Andrey Fedosov vs Joey Dawejko 13th October
Joe Joyce rumoured to be facing Gerald Washington or Luis Ortiz on the Fury vs Wilder undercard

Outside of him being hailed as the "Great Wall" I knew nothing about him. Did you see anything of him and if you did do you think he had any ability to work with or was his size the only reason he was signed to Golden Boy?
I think I've seen all of his fights. He was technically poor, slow and easy to hit but he was still an intriguing prospect to me. He was in incredible shape, had plenty of combat sport experience and seemed to have some real power, I thought that with a lot of coaching he could've done something if he used his size to his advantage in a Valuev type way. One of his main problems was that he struggled with distance, smothering his own work and had a tendency to push his opponent down on the inside. I think Golden Boy expected that he would be marketable but they never really committed to the project from what I can see. It's a shame as I'm a sucker for a good novelty heavyweight
