Russian promoter Vladimir Hyrunov is continuing his discussions with Don King to finalize a date and location for a cruiserweight fight between WBA champion Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs) and mandatory challenger/interim-beltholder Denis Lebdev (24-1, 18KOs).
"Negotiations on the location for Guillermo Jones-Denis Lebedev continues. We are hopeful that the end result is positive - and that we sign the contracts. There are a number of issues that are being discussed. I'm hoping that very soon we'll arrive at a compromise, and then I will be able to reveal the exact date of the fight," Hyrunov said.
