Nearly a year has passed since Guillermo Jones and Denis Lebedev engaged in their epic 2013 Fight of the Year clash. Neither fighter has been in the ring since, but they meet again tonight at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Moscow, Russia. Jones’ KO win last year was a massive upset, however Lebedev regained the title when Jones failed a post fight drug test. The WBA ordered an immediate rematch.

Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs) spent several months preparing with Freddie Roach for this fight and has vowed to punish Jones. He enters as the favorite (-260), while the 41-year-old Jones (39-3-2, 31 KOs) is a +220 underdog.
