Shumenov previously held the belt but lost it to Bernard Hopkins by decision in a 2014 title unification fight.Dorticos (21-0, 20 KOs), 30, a Cuban defector living in Miami, claimed the vacant interim title by 10th-round knockout of Youri Kalenga in an action-packed fight of the year contender in May in Paris.Unified titleholder Denis Lebedev (29-2, 22 KOs), of Russia, holds the WBAs super title (as well as the IBF belt) and will defend them against Murat Gassiev (23-0, 17 KOs), also of Russia, on Dec. 3 in Moscow.
