    The interim WBA Heavyweight Championship will be on the line Saturday night as Trevor Bryan and B. J. Flores square off at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, AZ it was announced by promoter Don King.

    The 28-year-old Bryan (19-0, 13 KOs), who hails from Schenectady, NY has his eyes on the interim world title as he returns to the ring Saturday night following stopping Francois Russell in the third round in his last fight on Dec. 15, 2017. Flores, who hails from Chandler, AZ is 34-3-1 with 21 KOs. He last fought at the Celebrity Theater on June 24, 2017 and won a unanimous decision over Nick Guivas.

    The interim title is on the line since the pending WBA heavyweight championship pitting Manuel Charr and Fres Oquendo is currently in litigation. The fight is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 29, but the courts will decide if this championship bout moves forward.

    To be fair to the madness that is the WBA heavyweight triple-crown these were the next 2 available guys.
    Povetkin is facing Joshua, Fres is in line for a shot at "Regular" champion Charr and Fatty is taking on the ancient Adamek...

    Who is in line for what title shot in the WBA is getting harder to figure out than the order of succession in some royal families.

    WBA
    1. Alexander Povetkin
    2. Fres Oquendo
    3. Jarrell Miller
    4. Trevor Bryan
    5. BJ Flores

    Of course, one could ask why this bout has to be for any kind of title at all. Just let them fight each other in a feature fight or make it an official title challenger eliminator.

    So does Don King actually have a legitimate heavyweight contender?
