Jones-Lebedev WBA title update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

An important source told that something may be happening with the fight between WBA cruiserweight world champion Guillermo Jones and Russian WBA interim cruiserweight world champion Denis Lebedev, scheduled for October 27 at the CSKA in Moscow, Russia. Apparently, but not officially, the fight could not be made and there is talk that Jones wants to fight in the near future and even mentions a country in South America. On his Twitter account, Jones wrote “I hope that Lebedev isn’t chickening out as I was told today! And I hope the sanctioning bodies are serious and do their job!”
