THE WEEK AHEAD: One of the biggest fights the division has seen since Adamek-Cunningham will go down in Germany this Saturday when #2 Marco Huck takes on #6 Denis Lebedev of Russia in a fight that will have huge implications in the top 5- possibly even putting the #1 spot at risk.  On the undercard, #5 Yoan Pablo Hernandez fights gatekeeper Ali Ismailov of Azerbaijan.

In France, local fringe contender Rachid El Hadak- who has been fighting mainly nobodies since his upset win over Merick Roberge in 2008 catapulted him into contention- continues the pattern by fighting mediocre journeyman J.J. Ojuederie .
