Weights are in for the “Battle of two Empires”, which will be held tomorrow at “Dynamo” Arena in Krylatskoye, Moscow, Russia. Six bouts will be conducted with Roy Jones Jr. and Denis Lebedev being in the headline position of the show.

Headliner: 12 rounds at cruiserweight limit
Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16 KOs) – 200 pounds
Roy Jones Jr. (54-7, 41 KOs) – 198.5 pounds

Russian Lebedev is ranked #1 by the WBO and #4 by the Ring. Roy Jones Jr. is a former multi-champion in four different weight classes.

Undercard:

1. 10 rounds at super bantamweight limit
Alexander Bakhtin (26-0, 11 KOs) – 121.8
Jose Angel Berranza (33-19-2, 26 KOs) – 121.6

Mexican Berranza is a late sub for Medgoen Singsurat (Thailand) and Leon Moore. Russian Bakhtin is ranked #5 by the IBF at 118 lbs and #7 by the WBC at 122 lbs.

2. 10 rounds for the WBC super featherweight Youth Intercontinental interim title
Yaundale Evans (13-0, 9 KOs) – 129.3
Ruslan Berchuk (4-2, 1 KO) – 130.5

American Evans will be the only contestant for the title (full version will be awarded to a winner of the fight between Jose Manuel Osorio and Alexander Monterrosa on June 18) as Ruslan Berchuk is already 24 years of age. He is also a little bit overweight but Team Evans agreed to let the fight go on.

Ismayl Sillakh (15-0, 12 KOs) – 179.2
Hamza Wandera (12-2-2, 11 KOs) – 173.4

The fight between California-based Ukrainian Sillakh (WBC #6 and IBF #14) and Kenyan Wander is a non-title affair.

He looks terrible. Looking very aged and worn. The weight doesn't look good on him and I don't see how this fight can be anything other than another embarrassing loss. Sorry, Roy is a hero, but not THIS Roy.
