Russian promoter and manager Vladimir Hryunov expects WBA interim-champion Denis Lebedev (24-1, 18KOs) to fight full WBA cruiserweight titleholder Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs). He denies reports of Lebedev walking away from the fight. The two sides are having difficulties finalizing a deal. If they can't reach a deal by Friday, then Hryunov will make a demand for the World Boxing Association to send the mandatory fight to a purse bid.

"Information regarding the fight being canceled is false. Guillermo Jones must conduct the fight with Denis Lebedev - because this should reveal the true champion. If the parties are still unable to reach an agreement by Friday, then a purse bid will be held. But Jones-Lebedev is going to take place to identify the true champion," Hyrunov said.

This is a fight I want to see right here. I want to see Lebedev against someone who is relevant now, not 10-15 years ago.
