Vladimir Hryunov, the manager of WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs), has advised his boxer to use caution when facing dangerous puncher Shawn Cox (16-1, 15KOs), who in his last fight demolished former champion Wayne Braithwaite in a single round. Lebedev-Cox takes place on April 4th at Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. Local fans are expected a battle of power - because Lebedev may be facing the first opponent who plans to stand his ground to trade power punches.
"No one is expecting this to be easy for Denis. We all know that Cox is dangerous, and therefore we chose him. Shawn in preparing hard, and very soon he will come to Russia and you'll be able to evaluate his spirit and his will to win. This will be a great match where both of them will do everything to win until the very end. Lebedev can not relax for a single moment, because Cox is a very serious opponent," Hryunov said.
