Nevertheless, the World Boxing Council have decided to approve the bout in bantamweight division. 

Zrazhevskaya has been competing at the professional level for five years. She has already ten bouts in Russia and Germany. Tatyana won the WBC Silver Female by defeating Gabriella Busa of Hungary, but did not strive to defend and left the title.

In addition, to the large number of bouts, she fought twice for the WBO World Female, once for the WBA World Female and twice for the WBC Interim World Female. However, all attempts to take the belt was ended lost or draw. She has now one more chance of winning. 

In the main event, Evgeny Tishchenko vs Thabiso “The Rock” Mchunu will collide for the WBC Silver Title. In addition to Thabiso’s Silver title at stake, the bout will be eliminatory for the right to challenge champion Ilunga Makabu.
