Guillermo Jones to finally defend?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Looks like WBA cruiserweight world champion Guillermo Jones has an opponent, date and location for the first defense of his title. Sources say Jones may be returning on February 27 in France against Valerie Brudov, the mandatory challenger. Apparently an agreement has been worked out between the parties involved and the WBA has called off a scheduled purse bid. It will be Jones first fight since winning the title in September 2008 by defeating Firat Arslan in Germany. Brudov has previously held the WBA interim cruiserweight belt.
