Denis Lebedev Wants Marco Huck Rematch Next

By Yuri Tarantin

WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (26-2, 20KOs) of Russia is hungry for revenge against longtime WBO champion Marco Huck. Lebedev, now trained by Hall of Fame coach Freddie Roach, believes he will do more than enough in a rematch to secure a victory. He blames his old corner for giving away the first match by going easy in the last two rounds. Huck won a twelve round split decision in 2010 with scores of 115-113 twice and third card was 116-112 for Lebedev.

"I would like to return the favor to one person and that is Marco Huck. In our first fight it was my fault that I [go hard in the final] two rounds. One of the [people in the corner], I will not name him, got me in a corner and said, 'Denis, this is our fight, just stay safe in the last two rounds and we've won.' Then I took things calmly in the last two rounds. That was my mistake," Lebedev said.
