MOSCOW’S Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye hosts two world cruiserweight title contests on Saturday September 27, both pitting a Russian against a Pole.

Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, 49-2-1 (35), of Piaseczno in Poland, defends his WBC crown against Chekhov’s European titlist Grigory Drozd, 38-1 (27), while southpaw Denis Lebedev, 25-2 (9), also of Chekhov, puts his WBA belt on the line against Krynica Zdroj’s Pawel Kolodziej, 33-0 (18).

Two-time world ruler Wlodarczyk, 33, has not lost since dropping a decision to Steve Cunningham in May 2007 – a man he outscored six months previously. He has since stopped Danny Green, Rakhim Chakhkiev and Giacobbe Fragomeni (twice).
