Photos: Lebedev vs. Jones Rematch Final Presser

By David Martin Warr

The final press conference took place for the upcoming fight between Guillermo Jones and WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev, which is scheduled for April 25th at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow.

The WBA belt was returned to Lebedev but the result of the bout was not reserved. The WBA then ordered a rematch.
