South African Kevin Lerena will fight Romanian Bogdan Dinu on March 26 for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental Heavyweight title at the Emperors Palace in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa. 

Lerena will be at home to dispute the vacant regional belt of the pioneer organization against an opponent with extensive experience in professional boxing as Dinu.

The home fighter will be making his second fight at heavyweight after a good performance in the cruiserweight category. His first fight at heavyweight was in December 2020, when he knocked out Patrick Ferguson in five rounds. 

Dinu has been at heavyweight for years and at 35 he knows he has a great opportunity against Lerena. The Romanian contested the WBA interim championship against Daniel Dubois in his most recent bout and has faced good opponents such as Kubrat Pulev and Jarrell Miller, which is an advantage in experience for him.

Lerena has a record of 26 wins, 1 loss and 13 knockouts, while Dinu has 20 wins, 3 losses and 16 knockouts.
