Trevor Bryan Calls Across the Pond for Fights with Fury, Joshua and Usyk

If nothing else, you have to give Trevor “The Dream” Bryan (22-0, 15 KO’s) an A for confidence. In his first bout in one year, on the second in four years, Bryan went tooth and nail with Jonathan Guidry. The Regular WBA champion defeated Guidry by the skin of his teeth via split decision. To put some perspective on this, Guidry’s last five foes had a combined record of 52-56-4. Said to say, he had not been competing with anyone’s world beaters.

To be honest, Bryan did perform well at times during the fight and delivered precise, thudding blows. He often handled himself well on the inside, showing firsthand that he had the ability to fight in the pocket or at range. Even better, he almost cinched a buzzer beater knockout but Guidry just barely gutted it out. At the same time however, to be chasing the elite heavyweights of the world, the Dream appears to be wildly out of shape. To make matters worse, the defending champion was punched square in the face throughout the whole fight, highlighting numerous defensive concerns.


Despite the less than homerun performance, the Regular WBA champion enthusiastically called out a stellar trio of overseas opponents.

“Listen, Trevor Bryan is here to stay! I’m here, the only thing, I’m going to get better, I’m going to keep improving on my skills. I showed that tonight, I worked all the way through to the end of the bell and I’m here baby, I’m still!”

“Listen, I am taking my talents overseas! All those guys in the top three which is [WBC heavyweight champion] Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua and my mandatory challenger [WBA Super, WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr] Usyk. I want to make those fights, I deserve those fights. I’m in a mandatory position. It’s a stepping stone for me. I’m going like I said, I’m taking my talents overseas and show them over there!”

There is little doubt that the three fighters that he named are paying very little attention, if any at all. Usyk and Joshua are likely going to square dance next, and despite their meandering negotiations, Fury looks to be facing Dillian Whyte in his next at bat. So even if they were interested, they have bigger fish to fry, as it were. Nevertheless, it will be fun to see who Bryan takes on next.

Perhaps that is for the best. Given how full his hands were with Guidry, there would be poor odds on him being the favorite in any of those bouts. Said differently, who sees Usyk, Fury or Joshua struggling with Guidry? There is no doubt that Bryan would want to make a few improvements in the lab before going after those leviathans.
