Certain details have been discussed regarding a possible fight between top cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16 KOs) and former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. (54-7, 40 KOs). The fight could be held in the town of Balashikha in Russia, on the date of April 27, which is going to make it a mid-week show if the date continues to hold. Jones had previously fought IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green on a Wednesday in Australia and was stopped in the first round.
"We are in talks with Roy Jones' camp for a the clash with Lebedev and now we are waiting for a response from Jones' team," said Richard Maynard, a representative of Frank Warren, who promotes Lebedev.
