Guillermo Jones Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Sources have reported to Fightnews.com that WBA cruiserweight champion Guillermo Jones could pull out of his October 27 fight against Andre Taylor slated to take place in the Poliedro de Caracas in Venezuela. Promoter Don King announced last Wednesday in Panama City that Jones would make an optional defense, then supposedly face interim titleholder Denis Lebedev on December 22. King also stated he had the support of the governments of Panama and Venezuela for profesional boxing in those countries. Unofficial sources report that Jones will not fight, citing a hand injury. Nothing official has been announced.
