News outlets in Russia are indicating that a deal is close being finalized for a meeting between former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. (54-7, 40 KOs) and top rated cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16 KOs). The two sides have agreed to the terms and both fighters are expected to sign the contracts. The date will fall in either late May or early June, and Moscow's Sportkompleks Olimpiiskii (Olympic Sports Complex) could host the contest. Jones is reportedly getting a guaranteed purse of $500,000 dollars.

Editor's Note: BoxingScene.com has received confirmation from Square Ring that a deal was reached for May 22 in Moscow . Ismayl Syllakh is not likely for the undercard.

I'm really worried and concerned about Roy this time. It's all fun and games when it's Lacy or Sheika or even an old hopkins who just doesn't have the power anymore, but a top cruiseweight? It's a real shame things like this in boxing can happen.

LEBEDEV can really KO cold ROY;is he become fool?Watching his last fight with BHOP i really think he risks too much;damn he lost his speed,he lost his reflexes and he lost his power,WHY DOES HE FIGHT THIS MAN?This is not a title fight,Does he want to be also cruiserweight champ?Well,USS CUNNINGHA...
