The weights are in for Moscow's big night of boxing, which is taking place tomorrow at Crocus City Hall in Myakinino, a satellite town at the western boarder of Moscow, Russia.

Headlining the show is the WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17 KOs), who is also ranked #1 by the WBA and #2 by the WBO; interim champions are now being ranked by the World Boxing Association. Lebedev will put his title at risk against dangerous heavy-hitter Shawn Cox (16-1, 15 KOs) of Barbados, who is rated #15 by the WBA at 200lbs. In February, Cox defeated former WBC champion Wayne Braithwaite in the first round.

Denis Lebedev 199.2 vs. Shawn Cox 200

In co-main event, highly regarded super bantamweight contender Alexander Bakhtin (28-0, 11 KOs) takes on former WBA bantamweight interim-champion Nehomar Cermeno (20-4-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant WBA international super bantamweight title. Bakhtin is ranked #4 by the WBC, #5 by the WBA and #12 by the IBF, while Cermeno, who was 0-4-1 with 1 NC in his last six fights, is rated #11 by the same sanctioning body.

Alexander Bakhtin 121.5 vs. Nehomar Cermeno 121.5

In another important contest, heavyweight veteran Denis Bakhtov (33-7, 23 KOs) comes back after back-to-back losses to Russian/Ukrainian contenders Alexander Ustinov and Vyacheslav Glazkov - and faces American journeyman Jonte Willis (8-2-1, 3 KOs) over eight.

Denis Bakhtov ??? vs. Jonte Willis 208. Bakhtov will weigh-in later today.

Other fights:

Oleg Liseev (3-1, 2 KOs) vs. Artur Akavov (5-0) – 8 rounds, light middleweights

Eduard Trojanovskiy (9-0, 7 KOs) vs. Shavkat Halilov (7-1, 1 KO) – 6 rounds, lightweights.

The show is promoted by Vladimir Hryunov. Ring announcers will be the legendary Michael Buffer and Ukrainian Golden Voice Sergey Bryl.

Ring icons Roy Jones Jr. and Kostya Tszyu will be in attendance as well as flamboyant British heavyweight Dereck Chisora.

The show starts at 8 PM LT and will be broadcasted live by Russian TV. BoxingScene.com thanks Girgory Stangrit for help in obtaining these results.

Any other "titlist"(paper, interim, world) come into a fight with a big black shiner on his eye? Never seen that.

Roy is there to help promote boxing in Russia. They took a liking to him when he fought Lebedev.
