The weights are in for Moscow's big night of boxing, which is taking place tomorrow at Crocus City Hall in Myakinino, a satellite town at the western boarder of Moscow, Russia.

Headlining the show is the WBA interim-cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17 KOs), who is also ranked #1 by the WBA and #2 by the WBO; interim champions are now being ranked by the World Boxing Association. Lebedev will put his title at risk against dangerous heavy-hitter Shawn Cox (16-1, 15 KOs) of Barbados, who is rated #15 by the WBA at 200lbs. In February, Cox defeated former WBC champion Wayne Braithwaite in the first round.

In co-main event, highly regarded super bantamweight contender Alexander Bakhtin (28-0, 11 KOs) takes on former WBA bantamweight interim-champion Nehomar Cermeno (20-4-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant WBA international super bantamweight title. Bakhtin is ranked #4 by the WBC, #5 by the WBA and #12 by the IBF, while Cermeno, who was 0-4-1 with 1 NC in his last six fights, is rated #11 by the same sanctioning body.

Any other "titlist"(paper, interim, world) come into a fight with a big black shiner on his eye? Never seen that.

Roy is there to help promote boxing in Russia. They took a liking to him when he fought Lebedev.
