Fres Oquendo (37-7, 24KOs) will challenge former two-time champion Ruslan Chagaev (32-2-1, 20KOs) on July 6th for the vacant World Boxing Association 'regular' heavyweight crown.

The title became vacant after Wladimir Klitschko, the WBA's super champion, defeated 'regular' champion Alexander Povetkin last year when they met in a sanctioning body unification.
