The belt was vacated when champion Robert Helenius had to undergo shoulder surgery, which is going to require several months of rehabilitation.

For Pulev, this is the first tough test of his entire career. Promoter by Sauerland Event, Pulev is one of their rising heavyweight prospects. Dimitrenko, experienced and dangerous, is promoted by Universum. Recently, Dimitrenko and Universum exchanged words in the media. Whether Dimitrenko withdraws from the bout is unknown, but Pulev is ready to fight.
