It would probably be the smart thing for Sasha to be honest. He's ranked 5 in the WBC and 4 in the WBO and fights with Wlodarczyk and Huck would be no more dangerous than a Masternak fight plus the reward of a belt rather than risk yet another Lebedev like situation where he falls short of a title shot for the 3rd time. I actually think Masternak is more dangerous for him than Wlodarczyk.
