Krzysztof Wlodarczyk Interested in Facing Denis Lebedev

By Luke Furman

Krzysztof "El Diablo" Wlodarczyk (49-3-1, 35 KOs) is ready to get right back in the mix after suffering a disappointing loss, along with his WBC cruiserweight title, to Grigory Drozd (39-1, 27 KOs) last week in Moscow, Russia. The former world champion has announced that he will train hard and come back stronger - and look for a rematch with his conqueror, or, for example, WBA champion Denis Lebedev (26-2, 20 KOs), who on Saturday quickly knocked out Pawel Kolodziej.

"I am angry at myself for what I presented in the ring. I did not give my best. But I promise that I will return and show you where Krzysztof Wlodarczyk really stands. I am ready to fight with any of the current champions, including, for example, Lebedev," said "El Diablo".

Lebedev and Drozd are stablemates under the World of Boxing promotional banner and have no interest, at the moment, in fighting each other.
