Jones-Brudov goes to purse bid

By Flattop

FightNews has been informed by Branco Sports Productions, the promoter of cruiserweight contender Valerie Brudov who is the mandatory challenger to WBA champion Guillermo Jones, that they will forgo further negotiations with Don King for the mandatory defense and will instead participate with the January 21st purse bid. “There is no longer anything to negotiate with Don King,” stated Sampson Lewkowicz, the spokesperson for Branco Sports. “We plan to go to purse bid as scheduled with the WBA.” FightNews had reported earlier that an agreement had been worked out between the parties involved and that the WBA had called off a scheduled January 21st purse bid. “No agreement has been reached and the purse bid is still scheduled for January 21st,” Lewkowicz emphasized. “Brudov has waited long enough for his opportunity. Jones has had the title for over a year and he has not even stepped back into the ring. We are looking forward to the purse bid resolving the deadlock!” Jones has been inactive since he dethroned then-WBA cruiserweight champion Firat Arslan on September 27, 2008.
