Dmitry Sukhotskiy: James Toney Knocks Lebedev Out!

By Ruslan Chikov & Yuri Tarantino, Allboxing.ru

The WBO's #1 ranked light heavyweight, Dmitry Sukhotskiy (18-1, 13KOs) is not backing his Russian countryman on November 4th in Moscow. Sukhotskiy's countryman, Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17KOs), will face former three division world champion James Toney (73-6-3, 44KOs) of the United States.

Even with Lebedev's youth, strength and homefield advantage, Sukhotskiy believes the experience of Toney will push him through - by knockout. Toney is one of the most experienced boxers in the sport, but he's fought at heavyweight since 2003. He weighed 257-pounds, a career high, for his February win over Damon Reed. It may be a struggle for the veteran to make the cruiserweight limit of 200-pounds for Lebedev.

"I think Tony should win by knockout," Sukhotskiy stated when discussing the outcome.

Why is Lebedev's FELLOW MEMBER of TSZYU CREW picking against him? This is unacceptable! I see Lebedev winning off aggression and punch output; i know he's not normally a big volume puncher, but he lets the hands go a lot…
