Kostya Tszyu: I Want Lebedev To Fight Danny Green

By Edward Chaykovsky

Boxing legend Kostya Tszyu, who trained Denis Lebedev (22-1, 17KOs) for Saturday's tenth round knockout of Roy Jones Jr. in Moscow, would like to see his pupil face IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green. But first, Green has to win a very dangerous fight on July 20th when he faces former champion Antonio Tarver, who makes his cruiserweight debut. Tszyu, one of the biggest stars in Australia, believes a fight between Green and Lebedev would be a huge hit with the Australian boxing fans. 

"Now that we got past Roy, we start looking ahead to our next challenge," said Tszyu to AAP. "For me, I want to bring Denis to Australia to fight Danny Green. I think the fans would love to see that fight."
