Khodynka Ice Palace, Moscow, Russia - Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs) dominated former three division world champion James "Lights Out" Toney (73-7, 44KOs) over twelve rounds to capture the interim-WBA cruiserweight title. All three judges had it 120-108.

WBC #3 super bantamweight Alexander Bakhtin (28-0, 11 KOs) was his usual light-hitting self in a methodical ten-round drubbing of little-interested Columbian Luiz Melendez (31-7-1, 22 KOs). Bakhtin, 30, was faster, tougher and more active. Melendez was down twice in the third after vicious body punches by Bakhtin. No scores were announced but BoxingScene had it 100-88 for the Russian, who has been ready for a title fight since 2007 at the very least.

Ukrainian light heavyweight force Ismayl Sillakh (17-0, 14 KOs) continued his way up in ranks by easily dismantling Azerbaijani cruiserweight veteran Ali Ismailov (18-8-1, 13 KOs) in the fourth round of scheduled ten. WBC #3 and IBF #7 ranked 175lber was toying with his 37-year old opponent until dropping him down hard with a perfect right uppercut. Ismailov got up but refused to go on as referee Evgueny Gorstkov waved the fight off at 1:06 of the fourth.

2008 Beijing Olympics super heavyweight bronze medalist Vyacheslav Glazkov took well-known Russian journeyman Daniel Peretyatko (17-30, 7 KOs) to school in a stay-busy fight before Peret's corner put a halt to the action after the fifth. The Ukrainian boxer looked superior to his opponent in every possible department, gradually beating Peretyatko to the punch with his jabs and powerful right hands. The Russian was also knocked down at the end of the first with a hard right counter. Glazkov is now 10-0, with 7 kayos.
