Lebedev vs Mormeck Would Take Place at Cruiserweight

By Roman Grishin

According to boxing promoter/manager Vladimir Hryunov, a potential fight between WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (24-1, 18KOs), and former champion Jean Marc Mormeck (36-5, 22KOs), would indeed take place at the cruiserweight limit of 200-pounds.

Hryunov, who manages Lebedev's career, received an offer to face Mormeck in France in the first week of June. However, Mormeck has not been a cruiserweight since 2007 and usually weighs between 215 to 216-pounds for his heavyweight outings.

Last month, Mormeck was dominated and knocked out in four rounds by WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko. Lebedev returned on Wednesday in Moscow and knocked out Shawn Cox in two rounds.

And so it should be at cruiserweight since they are cruiserweights, and no mormeck isnt a heavyweight he just needs to stop being lazy.
