WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev is interested in seeing his good friend, WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16KOs), face British brawler Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs). When asked about the possibilities for Povetkin in the future, Lebedev said he was more interested in Povetkin-Chisora, than possible fights between Povetkin and the Klitschkos or Alexander Dimitrenko.
" honestly do not want to see a fight between [Povetkin and Klitschkos/Dimitrenko]. Instead, [I'd like to see him with] Chisora, why not?," Lebedev said.
