WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (24-1, 18 KOs) will take on unbeaten #8 rated challenger Santander Silgado (23-0, 18 KOs) from Brooklyn, NY by way of Colombia in a voluntary defense of his belt on Monday night at the Crocus City Hall in Myakinino, Russia (a suburb of Moscow).

Lebedev will be defending the full title for the first time since being elevated by the WBA from interim champion status. Lebedev weighed in at 197.5 and Silgado was 3.7 pounds lighter at 193.8. Silgado is promoted by Brooklyn-based Havoc Boxing.
