South African Kevin Lerena and Romanian Bogdan Dinu both made weight for their bout this Saturday for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental Heavyweight title, which will take place at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park, in Gauteng, South Africa.
Lerena, the local fighter, weighed an exact 231 pounds, while the visitor stopped the scales at 251.3 pounds, which leaves both ready to dispute the regional title.
It will be an interesting bout between two powerful fighters. Lerena has youth on his side and is on a roll as he has not lost a fight since 2014.
Dinu, on the other hand, has a wide experience and has fought against high quality opponents such as Daniel Dubois, Jarrell Miller or Kubrat Pulev. A great shooting for the European, who has an important advantage in weight and height.
Lerena has 26 wins, 1 loss and 13 knockouts. Dinu has 20 wins, 3 losses and 16 knockouts.
