Lebedev defeats Toney

Posted: November 4, 2011 in Boxing

Russian Cruiserweight Denis Lebedev dominated James Toney for 12 rounds and earned the unanimous decision victory on friday in Moscow, claiming the Interim WBA World Cruiserweight Title.  Lebedev pounded Toney in the corners and against the ropes where he landed many clean shots that had Toney staggering all over the ring.  Lebedev used his fast jab and heavy left hook from the southpaw stance to control Toney who never really got started in this fight.

Also on the Card:
-Ukrainian Light Heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh defeated Ali Ismailov by KO to go 17-0.  Sillakh looked impressive using an effective jab and ending the fight with a beautiful right uppercut followed by the one-two that sent Ismailov to the canvas for the 10 count.

-Russian Super Bantamweight Alexander Bakhtin kept his undefeated record in tact after defeating Luis Melendez of Colombia by unanimous decision, and dropping him twice in the 3rd with hooks to the body.
