There are ongoing discussions to matach Grigory Drozd (35-1, 25 KOs) against Lateef Kayode (18-0-1, 14 KOs), likely for the vacant IBO cruiserweight title, according to the Russian boxer's manager/promoter Vladimir Hryunov.
Hryunov has been talking with Kayode's promoter, Gary Shaw, regarding a potential fight on the 4th of November in Kemerovo - a city on the Asian side of Russia.
However, there is some concern after recent reports surfaced that Kayode was involved in a physical confrontation with a trainer and there could be criminal charges coming.
