Denis Lebedev: Guillermo Jones Is A Good Test For Me

By Alexey Sukachev

Following an open workout yesterday WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-1, 19 KOs) shared another portion of his thoughts about the upcoming unification against WBA champion in recess Guillermo Jones (38-3-1, 30 KOs), which will be held on Friday night at Crocus City Hall in Myakinino, Moscow, Russia. Lebedev was briefed by the Soviet Sport daily.

“I think Guillermo Jones is a world-class opponent, and he is tough. This is a good test for me, and this fight will be a stark reply to all those who doubt my power and legitimacy of my title. I know there’s a plethora of them, mostly in the Web. However, I’m not here to prove anything. I just consider this bout as another stepping stone in my development, and I hope it’ll bring me onto a higher level”, said Lebedev.

“I haven’t changed anything in my preparations. As always, I have been working with Alexander Zimin and other trainers of the old Soviet school of boxing. As it the case for any fight to the north of the lightweight limit, the outcome can be decided with a single punch. That should be the biggest concern.”
