Jones vs Lebedev: Poetry Contest For Free Tickets

by Alexey Sukachev

On May 21 in Moscow, Russia, ring legend Roy Jones (54-7, 41 KOs) collides with WBO #1 cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16 KOs) in a fight which is presently advertised as no other than the “Battle of Two Empires”. The fight card, which will also see heavyweight promise Vyacheslav Glazkov (9-0, 6 KOs), bantamweight hope Alexander Bakhtin (26-0, 11 KOs), rising light heavyweight Ismayl Syllakh (15-0, 12 KOs), and a heated clash between Maxim Vlasov (19-1, 10 KOs) and James McGirt Jr. (22-3-1, 11 KOs) is expected to be a sellout.

Promoter of the show Vladimir Hryunov, who also acts as a manager for both Denis Lebedev and heavyweight hope Alexander Povetkin, encourages both local and foreign fans to take part in a contest where they can secure a rare chance of seeing the entire show from ringside with the most comfortable seats. To get a pass (which actual costs 50.000 rubles, and corresponds roughly to 1.650 US dollars) one should compose a short poem in either Russian or English, which will meet the following requirements:

1. Roy Jones Jr., Vladimir Hryunov and Denis Lebedev must be mentioned in the rhyme. Kostya Tszyu’s name is appreciated as well. Kostya helps Denis Lebedev in his preparations for this fight.

2. The 7th of May is a deadline for all contestants to send their poems.

3. Several poems will be chosen to take part in the second stage of the contest.

4. The winner of the contest would be defined by means of the open fans’ voting between the 8th and the 15 of May.
