Team Lebedev Eye Huck Rematch in Russia After Jones
By Ryan Burton
In a recent article on BoxingScene.com, Denis Lebedev's co-manager Vadim Kornilov said that they would look at a rematch against WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck if Lebedev is successful in his rematch against Guillermo Jones on Friday.
Huck (37-2-1, 26KOs) defeated Lebedev (25-2, 19KOs) via split decision in 2010 in a fight that could have gone either way. Kornilov feels that powerful Russian promoter Andrei Ryabinsky, who promotes Lebedev and has won several high profile purse bids, would try to stage a potential Huck-Lebedev 2 clash on Russian soil.
"Denis is promoted by Ryabinsky now and I think he would definitely try to put the fight in Russia because he is trying to promote the Russian market right now and I think he is doing a great job. As you have seen over the last year he has done a great job developing Russian fighters and the Russian boxing market. If a fight in Russia can't happen we will try to get a fight on neutral territory. We saw what happened in the first fight," Kornilov told BoxingScene.com.
