Fedor helping Lebedev prepare for Roy Jones Jr

source: The Underground
 

As part of his spartan training camps, Fedor previously brought in world-class Russian boxer Denis Lebedev ( (21-1-0 boxing record) to help sharpen his ferocious striking style.

 

Now Fedor is returning the favor, and is assisting former world champion and current trainer Kosta Tszyu prepare Lebedev for a May 22 bout vs Roy Jones Jr. In the Russian language piece below Fedor relates that he asked if he could come over and train with Denis for his fight. They already had a sparring partner for Denis, but Fedor wanted to stay busy, and Denis didn't say no to his old friend. Fedor said Kostya Tszyu has shown him few boxing tricks and taught him few new moves.

Lebedev is a legit world-class boxer - a top-5 cruiserweight, with heavy hands (as already mentioned, he KO'd former titleholder Enzo Maccarinelli), who very arguably should have gotten the decision over Marco Huck in their fight and taken his title. (Which would have then made Lebedev #2 or #3 at 200.)CW is weak, but Lebedev's one of the select-few best there. An elite guy to train with in boxing.
