WBC cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19KOs) is heading over to the United States to have a two-month training camp. Lebedev is coming off an eleven round knockout loss to Guillermo Jones last May. Negotiations are now ongoing to finalize a date and location for a mandatory rematch with Jones. The fight is being targeted for a date in either March or April.
