WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan will defend his title against Jonathan Guidry on Saturday, January 29, at the W.D. Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio.

The card is being promoted by Don King.

Bryan is fighting for the first time in a year.

“It is going to be a great fight because you have two undefeated fighters coming together. It gives the fans an opportunity to get some relief momentarily from all of the threats of Covid,” King said.

“That’s what makes boxing great. Neither of these guys have tasted defeat. Give the people what they want. People are my most important asset. We want to give back to the people. The WBA has more or less held us hostage, not intentionally, but by the rules they have. It locked Trevor down for a whole year. If Guidry wins, he will be ready to go right off the bat.”

Bryan's last fight, which took place in January 2021, saw him stop former world champion Bermane Stiverne in eleven rounds.

That was his first ring appearance since August of 2018.

In 2022, King wants to get him in position for a major fight. Waiting in the wings, however, is top-rated Daniel Dubois, who may become Bryan's mandatory challenger in the near future.

“Bryan has the spirit of a winner. He has unwavering dedication. The dream is going to come true. Everybody can see that he cares about people and his family. That is what comes from hard work and commitment. This is what he really wants. He is in the right place at the right time," King said.

“He (Bryan) is ready to fight anybody. We will take on anybody. We may take them all in the same night. We want to be able to demonstrate and illustrate that a champion is a champion. We want Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder. I put on a fight to give the people what they want. We have a champion here. This demonstrates to the public that Bryan is a champion. It makes me feel good to go back to where I started in Ohio. We are going to be home and safe.”
