Jared Anderson will return on August 27th.
Dear god, it is being reported that Joe Joyce will fight Christian Hammer!
Breidis-Opetaia has been moved FORWARD to July 2!
Nice. Hope it comes off.
So now Dychko, who apparently did not fight last week, is fighting someone names Kevin Nicholas Espindola on the 23rd.
Peter Kadiru moves to 14-0 after Tayfun Kurt retired after round 3.
Ivan Dychko defeated Kevin Nicolas Espindola by UD
99-91, 100-90, 99-91
Disappointing - but to be fair, his opponent had never been stopped, and two of his three previous losses were MDs.
Miller won by UD as well, over a much more chinny opponent who had been stopped multiple times.

is scheduled to fight on September 9. No opponent has as yet been named.
Maybe a less than dominating UD is exactly what Dychko needed to entice the Kevin Johnsons, Johnnie Rices, etc. into fighting him?
Maybe I'm a bit overly-suspicious - and the Dychko fight wasn't televised - but the accounts of the fight I read suggested that Dychko was content to stomp around and throw jabs at his opponent and never really pressed the action. BTW: It's true that his opponent has not been stopped as a Pro, but he had been stopped a couple of times as an amatuer..
It's rare that I accuse a boxer of carrying his opponent - but maybe this was one of those rare occasions. There's no denying it - Dychko is having big problems getting useful fights.
Joe Cusumano - last seen being blown to bits in a single round by Daniel DuBois last summer in a truly dreadful bit of matchmaking - returned to the ring on Friday night against Irineu Beato Costa Junior as part of a CES Boxing card in Lincoln, RI.
Cusumano enjoyed better success this time around, as he recorded a KO victory over his opponent whose name reads a lot longer than his list of accomplishments. That is, unless you consider being knocked out by Joseph Parker, David Price, Denis Boytsov, Dillian Whyte, Sergey Kuzmin, Otto Wallin and Olesander Zakhozhyi to be an accomplishment...which I suppose it is.
The fight will be at the Montreal Casino. In a perfect world Simon Kean would step up and take this fight - because Simon hasn't made any real forward progress in the past few years. I don't really think Kean's chin is up to it and I suspect this fight won't happen because Simon Kean, himself, is of the same opinion.
Keane probably wouldn't see the second round.
Kean would get brutally knocked out and I wouldn't blame him for staying away from Makhmudov.
