WBA ‘Regular’ champion Trevor Bryan says he is aiming for the beasts of the heavyweight division, present and past.
The unbeaten New Yorker halted former WBC title holder Bermane Stiverne in 11 rounds in January to earn a belt that gives him a bargaining chip in a bustling division.
Now training in Florida, under the promotional wing of octogenarian promoter Don King (a battle-tested 89), Bryan has called out some big names as he seeks to make an impact.
“I’m the only heavyweight champion in the United States,” said the 31-year-old Bryan. “I’m the young lion and I’m hungry. Bring on Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. I’ll take their belts and become the undisputed heavyweight champion. I’ll even give Iron Mike Tyson the opportunity to come back and fight me for my title.
“I’m more than ready, so let’s get it on. We are ready to go. I’ll take on Mike Tyson for a tune-up and then I’ll fight either Joshua or Fury the same night.”
Promoter King added: “Let’s make a deal. Trevor is ready to get back into the ring and claim the other belts.”
