Lebedev won via 2 round KO.
This guy is looking more and more impressive.
Any more info on him you can give me. I like to hear about the up and comers.
I relaly thought Alexeev was oging to be something special
I KNEW you were going to start this thread, also.
the fight is up:
@ 9:44 in the video
Nice Berbick impression.
Thanks for the vid.
Man, that Lebedev.... rough lookin' mug on that dude
Looks like a young Dan Henderson to me.
Cruiser heating up again...
Lebedev beating Alexeev.
Next Huck v Godfrey.
Lebedev v winner.
BJ Flores possibly fighting Yoan Pablo Hernandez.
Danny Green v Briggs.
Now imagine if guys like Mormeck, Adamek and Haye stayed.
Now if we can only get Chad Dawson to move up instead of trying to go down. Then we would have something to really talk about.
I can't wait til the cruisers get some action going....I've been secretly watching lebedev's last few fights and admiring from afar....guy's a bottom-line individual, seemingly. Looks brawler-ish, but the trained eye will see that he is quite an effective counterpuncher, and controls distance perfectly: Usually fighting guys taller than he is, always leaves enough distance to avoid opponents' punches, but stays close enough to get in with jabs...and once he's in, he goes to work...rarely lets himself get smothered while there.
here's him stoppin maccarinelli:
Good thread MCPB, people need to be prompted to see what's going on across the pond sometimes.
btw, BJ Flores = rubbish, until proven otherwise
Gold medalist Rakhim Chakhkiev is someone to look out for.
Funny you mention that....
I was thinking the exact same thing after watching some of his fights.
Also, he never just tests with that left straight/hook. When he throws it he's trying to plaster the guy. gotta respect that.
Tough chin too.
I pretty much agree with you.
I did like what I saw in his fight with E. Mendoza. Granted, Mendoza was coming up from light heavy.... but Flores was landing meaningful shots.
But again, your point stands. Flores needs to show something.
who is that newer guy that calls himself "wyson?" i believe he is a cruiser.
