By Roman Grishin

According to WBA interim-cruiserweight king Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs), if he doesn't secure a fight with full WBA champion Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs), then he plans to target a fight with former two-time IBF champion Steve Cunningham (24-4, 12KOs), who recently lost a twelve round decision in a gutsy performance against Yoan Pablo Hernandez.

"First, I will go to Stuttgart to support Alexander Povetkin in his fight against Marco Huck [on February 25th]. Then I will begin to prepare for the next fight. Negotiations are underway for fights with Steve Cunningham and Guillermo Jones. I will fight with one of them. [My next] fight is scheduled for early April," Lebedev said.

[QUOTE=Dedication]Cunningham's one of the best. Doesn't change the fact that Lebedev's a huge cherry picker... Steve's coming off a loss and Leb's two previous bouts were against a pair of OAPs.[/QUOTE] "huge cherry picker"?...Anyone who's fought Huck can't be that much of a "cherry picker".

Lebedev hits a good deal harder than Pablo. Not nearly as fast or explosive though. Fairly even fight. But I hate Leb pouncing on a guy with two straight losses.

Steve could win a decision here but he has such a dodgey chin even though he has never been ko'd because of his ability to recover and survive but he is always hitting the canvas in fights.
