Guillermo Jones To Start Camp, Eyes Denis Lebedev Bout

By Ricardo Mendez Archibold, notifight.com

The cruiserweight champion (200 pounds) of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Guillermo "El Felino" Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs), will start training in Panama for what may be a potential title defense against interim-champion Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs) of Panama. Jones' promoter Don King and Lebedev's team have been discussing a possible fight. Jones has only fought twice since 2008 and wants to make sure his body and skills stay sharp if a deal to face Lebedev gets finalized.

"Tomorrow we are going to start training to stay in rhythm, and we are also negotiating to fight against the interim-champion Denis Lebedev of Russia," said Jones.

Jones is from Panama Lebedev is from Russia how bout fight in the U.S.? Doubt it because there is no money for cruiserweights, but considering Jones is the full champ and the WBA is based in Panama you would think…

Lebedev should avoid fighting Jones unless he can get the fight on a nuetral site, or he'll get robbed again.

Lebedev has many options! like a fight with tarver or fight for the vacant wbo title against afolabi! My mind says lebedevs promoter will avoid a fight with guillermo jones! Which is smart! i think jones is way too much…
