Kubrat Pulev returns against Bogdan Dinu tonight on ESPN.

Kubrat Pulev and Jessie Magdaleno return to action tonight in Costa Mesa, California, and we’ll be here with live coverage.

Prelim fights will stream live at 6:30 pm ET on ESPN+, with the main card starting at 10 pm ET on ESPN.

Pulev (26-1, 13 KO) is still a contender at heavyweight, and is the current IBF mandatory challenger, meaning he’s ostensibly in line for a fight with Anthony Joshua. The 37-year-old Bulgarian last fought in October, beating Hughie Fury in an eliminator, and has since signed with Top Rank.

He’ll face Bogdan Dinu (18-1, 14 KO), a Romanian who had fought his entire career at home and in Quebec, then got the call to face Jarrell Miller in November. It didn’t go well, as Miller knocked him out in the fourth round. Being honest, not much more is expected tonight.

Magdaleno (25-1, 18 KO) is a former super bantamweight titleholder moving up to featherweight, coming off of a title loss to Isaac Dogboe in April 2018. He’ll face another former super bantamweight titlist, veteran Rico Ramos (30-5, 14 KO). Both fights are set for 10 rounds.
