Shumenov wants Lebedev stripped

By Togorashi

WBA regular cruiserweight champion Beibut Shumenov wants the WBA to strip cruiserweight super champion Denis Lebedev for fighting Murat Gassiev instead of him. According to Team Shumenov, the Lebedev camp ignored a WBA order to fight him within 120 days after he unified with IBF cruiser champ Victor Emilio Ramirez on May 21, then after the deadline passed they allege Lebedev sought a special permit allowing him to fight Gassiev, which Shumenov (and interim cruiserweight champion Yunier Dorticos) objected to. At this present time, Team Shumenov is still waiting to hear the WBA’s ruling in terms of stripping Lebedev if he decides to go through with the fight Gassiev instead of fighting Shumenov.
