Well major kudos to Whyte if Fury is indeed out. It saves the card at least.
Good to see Chamberlain back.
Lol won't happen. Would like to see it though.
It pains me to see this. I've always liked Denis Bakhtov. But it seems the other heavyweights are afraid to face Dychko.
That's bad !!! I hope he is ok .
Hasim Rahman Jr will face Nathan Bedwell in a 6 rounder on August 14.
What’s the deal with Rahman Jr anyway? I think it is high time he kicks up the competition level, he has been a pro for a long time now and he isn’t exactly young anymore.
Just doing what most do these days, waiting for a cash out fight, similar to Cassius Chaney. Guess he'll just keep padding his record for now.
Raphael Akpejiori moves to 12-0 after a 1st round TKO victory over Steven Lyons.
Peter Kadiru will face Adnan Redzovic in an 8 rounder on July 17.
Christian Thun is scheduled to fight Lucas Browne on the 13th of August in Dubai.
Briedis won't go to heavyweight then?
I don't think it's guaranteed Briedis beats Cieslak.
Im not so confident that they will fight, especially at CW.
Well, at first I will believe that Briedis will fight again only after he will climb in the ring and will start to box.
He now didn't had fought 9 months ? and if for 20-30 y.o lad this is not imperssive ring rust, for almost 37 y.o boxer this does means a lot.
Briedis looks that today is 36.5 years old.
These talks about HW, then CW again? Dunno.
In good shape Briedis might be more dangerous than Cieslak for Okolie. Looks that after Dorticos fight they attempted to get Makabu fight, then these talks about fight vs Okolie and greedy eddie c o c ky until IBF ordered mandatory in Cieslak.
I think if they had negotiated Okolie fight before IBF had installed mandatory in Cieslak, IBF had agreed that title defense fight might be vs Okolie cos they encourage unification fights.
Eddie ofc wants for Okolie big win in december or january and I suspect that Cieslak doesn't have enough high chances to KO Okolie.
Yeah, Okolie will collect next belt too, sooner or later. doesn't matters will this be WBA, IBF or WBC belt.
