Promoter Andrei Ryabinsky, who runs World of Boxing, has signed the official contract with Don King, to staged the rematch between Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs) and Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31 KOs) on April 26th at the Dynamo sports complex in Krylatskoye, Russia.
They fought in Russia last year, with Jones stopping Lebedev in the eleventh round after a vicious beating to capture the WBA cruiserweight title. But a few weeks later the WBO returned the belt to Lebdev, after Jones tested positive for a banned substance. But then the sanctioning body ordered an immediate rematch between the two.
