Trevor Bryan on short list of potential foes for April 28th return to HBO

What's the latest and greatest brother? When can we expect to see you back in the ring? It's looking like it's going to be April 28 on HBO. It's going to be co-main event to Danny Jacobs in Brooklyn. We don't have an opponent locked in yet, but it's looking like it's going to be Trevor Bryan, but Don King is being difficult to negotiate with, so I guess the best way to say it is opponent to be determined.

DON KING FLEXES MUSCLE, LANDS ELIMINATOR FOR MARTIROSYAN

Poland's Maciej Sulecki (26-0, 10 KOs) will face Vanes Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) in a WBC 154-pound elimination bout, with the winner earning the right to challenge Jermell Charlo (30 -0, 15 KOs). Sulecki recently defeated Germany's Jack Culcay by unanimous decision on Oct. 21 in Newark, New Jersey. (Culcay formerly held the WBA regular title at 154 pounds). Martirosyan has not fought since a May 2016 loss to Erislandy Lara, so he does not really belong in an eliminator bout. Likely the WBC put him in this spot as a favor to his promoter Don King, who just won a purse bid to promote Sulecki vs. Martirosyan. --Scott Shaffer

"My next fight will be against another top contender and after I knock him out in spectacular fashion I'll be ready to go for the title."

Congrats on Saturday's victory over Iago Kiladze. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "He was strong, he came out very fast in the first two rounds, but I started to slow him down in the third and fourth, and by the fifth I knew I was going to finish him off." He did get off to a fast start in the first two rounds. He was popping his jab and being aggressive, even leaving you bloody after the first round. Did that fast start surprise you? "Yes and no. I figured it was going to be like that, but I didn't get into anything too crazy with him because I knew I was going to be able to wear him down in the later rounds."

It's a very busy time for Top Rank, you guys have a ton of shows coming up. And it's to stay busy for many, many years because now we don't have to sit around and waiting for dates and so forth. They [ESPN] give us the dates and we just put on great fights. Let's start with February 3rd in Corpus Christi, Texas, where Zurdo Ramirez will face Habib Ahmed. Jesse Hart, Teofimo Lopez and Benavidez will also see action. What can you tell us about February 3rd? "Jerwin Ancajas, my Philippine sensation is also on the show and he's fighting Israel Gonzalez (21-1) for the 115 pound title and that should be a very good fight. The thing that's really interesting is other than Ramirez and Ancajas fighting on ESPN, prior to that on ESPN News they're going to bring you the Jesse Hart fight and the Teofimo Lopez fight. So that's what our goal is, load up the card and have every fight televised. Not on ESPN the major channel because you can't preempt that much time, but they've got five different channels.

Kownacki's nose was a bloody mess after the first round, and he was outworked in the second, but from round three on it was all Kowancki. The Polish heavyweight won the third round as Kiladze began to visibly wear down. Kownacki, 17-0 (14), was walking him down in the fourth when he scored a knockdown that might have been a slip, but in rounds five and six Kiladze was badly punished before being dropped for a second time. He was able to beat the count, but referee Shada Murdough appropriately stopped the bout, because by its conclusion, Kiladze had taken a bad beating. Official time of stoppage was 2:01 of round six.
