Remember all that talk of Hughie Fury facing a world-ranked opponent in his next fight? Ha ha just kidding it's Nagy Aguilera.

No official word yet on what happened with Alexander Ustinov, who had been negotiating a bout with Fury. All I can find is this guy, who has a lot of Twitter followers so I guess he's as good a source as any.

Aguilera (20-9, 14 KO) is something of a jobber to the stars in the division, facing and losing to the likes of Chris Arreola, Tomasz Adamek, Dominic Breazeale, and Gerald Washington. He's only ever been stopped by Arreola and Sam Peter, so he's pretty tough, but that's about all he has going for him.

It's hard to articulate just how unexpected this development was. If you can't trust boxing promoters, who can you trust?

The Wembley card will be headlined by Nick Blackwell's BBBofC title defense against Chris Eubank Jr.
