Dimitar Tramburdzhiev (b. 1948) of Asenovgrad, Bulgaria was one of the candidates to the super heavyweight position with Team Bulgaria in the time between the retirement of Bulgarian classics Ivan Veselinov to the arrival of the new super promise Khristo Plachkov.

He brought medals from the international tournament (Friendship Cup, Danube Cup, etc.) but never materialized in a super contender in a super heavyweight class.
