Photos: Lebedev Blasts Out Cox With Mormeck in Sight

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, manager Vladimir Hryunov has received an offer for WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev to defend his title against former unified 200lb champion Jean-Marc Mormeck, who has been competing as a heavyweight since 2007. The offer would have the fight taking place in Mormeck's backyard of Paris, France, in early June.

“We have received such an offer”, confirmed  Hryunov.

Mormeck (36-5, 22 KOs) is coming off a hard knockout loss to the heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko in his most recent fight, while WBA #1 and WBO #2 Lebedev (24-1, 18 KOs) has just knocked out Shawn Cox in two on Wednesday.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Meanwhile, Lebedev reflected on his yesterday’s performance during an improvised press meeting with local reporters.

“I was tagged once during the fight. That happens to me sometimes, and that means I have to work even harder to improve myself further. But I didn’t lose my concentration and I never lost the feeling of the ring. I also heard Kostya Tszyu’s advice to move my shoulder, which I did…

"During the weigh-in I saw that Cox was ready to fight hard and offer me some zealous resistance. That didn’t happen, and his desire to fire back was vaporized after a couple of my bombs. He has also started to miss after I began my movements, thus losing what was left of his determination and confidence”.
