Bakole's Next Fight Date Announced

According to NoSmokeSport, the next fight for heavyweight Martin Bakole (20-1, 15 KOs) is scheduled for May 31 at a show promoted by Don King Promotions.

The most likely opponent is 36-year-old American Cassius Chaney (23-1, 16 KOs). This fight is expected to be a WBA eliminator. Currently, Bakole holds the top position in the Association's ranking. Mahmoud Charr is the "Regular" champion, while Oleksandr Usyk is the "Super" champion.

The 30-year-old Bakole fought twice in 2023, winning both times by a mid-fight stoppage – TKO 3 Igor Shevadzutsky and TKO 2 Carlos Takam. Chaney fought once last year, knocking out Trevor Bryan in the 7th round.
