In an important WBO cruiserweight eliminator, #1 rated Denis Lebedev (21-0, 16 KOs) scored an explosive second round KO over #2 rated Alexander Alexeev (19-2, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sport- Und Kongresshall in Schwerin, Germany. After taking the fight to Alekseev in round one, the aggressive Lebedev connected with a crushing straight left that finished Alekseev. The former Olympian and amateur world champion was extremely disoriented as he struggled to get back on his feet. Time was 2:43. Lebedev is now mandatory challenger for WBO champion Marco Huck.
The fight between WBO/WBA/WIBF flyweight champion Susi Kentikian (27-0, 16 KOs) and Arely Mucino (11-0-1, 6 KOs) ended in a third round technical draw after the “Killer Queen” suffered a bad cut on her hairline after an unintentional head clash. Kentikian keeps her world titles.
