Mahmoud Charr vs Kubrat Pulev

Mahmoud Charr (34-4) is defending his WBA crown he won in 2019. Charr defeated Aleksandr Ustinov to capture the title back in 2017, but never defended the belt.

Charr was stripped of the title in 2021 following inactivity, but was re-awarded the championship in 2023. He was set to face Jarrell Miller, but that fell through and Pulev was selected instead.

Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev (30-3) has competed unsuccessfully for the Unified Heavyweight titles against Anthony Joshua and Vitali Klitschko.

Pulev lost to Joshua in 2020. He rebuilt with a victory over Jerry Forrest but was defeated in 2022 by Derek Chisora in a tight-affair. Pulev last fought in December with a wide Unanimous Decision over Andrezj Wawryzk.

Kubrat Pulev will be competing in his home country for the first time since 2018.

Kubrat Pulev vs Ihor Shevadzutskyi

Mahmoud Charr pulled out of the contest with a shoulder injury, and has been replaced by Ihor Shevadzutskyi (11-1). The Ukranian Heavyweight’s only loss came against Martin Bakole via TKO last year.
