By Hilmar Rojas

WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-1, 19KOs) will defend his belt against champion in recess Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs) on an April date in Panama, Miami or Nigeria. Don King won this morning's purse bid at the WBA's offices in Panama, with a near double bang of $712,000 - far exceeding the bid made by Vladimir Hrunov, who put down $357,000.

Lebdev was the interim-champion but the sanctioning body made him the full champion after Jones, then the full champion, continued to postpone their fight. The last time it was scheduled was December 17th. Jones was unable to move forward and he was stripped of the full title, which then went to Lebedev. The WBA kept Jones in the mandatory spot.
