Lebedev Would Rather Get Revenge on Huck, Over Jones
by Ilya Buaevu
WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs) would rather get revenge on WBO champion Marco Huck, than face WBA full champion Guillermo Jones. Lebedev faces Shawn Cox (16-1, 15KOs) on April 4th in Moscow and he wants to face one of the major champions in the fall. Huck takes on mandatory Ola Afolabi on May 5th in Germany. Huck won a close twelve round split decision over Lebedev in December 2010. Lebedev is the mandatory challenger to Jones.
I would probably prefer to face Huck [if I had a choice between the two]. I would like to recover the debt that is owed to me. However, I would love to face Guillermo as well. He's a strong and interesting boxer," Lebedev said.
