Team Lebedev Inform Jones: Your Plane Ticket is Ready

By Rick Reeno

Vladimir Hyrunov, manager of top cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (23-1, 17KOs), disputes a recent report on BoxingScene.com, where WBA champion Guillermo "El Felino" Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs) made several allegations that Lebedev, the interim champion, was avoiding him. Jones issued a complaint to the World Boxing Association (WBA), alleging that Lebedev is refusing to accept his mandatory title shot.

Hyrunov is currently negotiating the fight details with Jones' promoter Don King. He denies that any contract was received.

"What Jones said is nonsense. We never received any contract. Denis is ready, willing and able to fight. Please tell Jones that his plane ticket is ready and he can fly down to Moscow at any time. I am currently speaking with Don King, but no contract has ever been issued," Hyrunov told BoxingScene.com.

Lebedev will keep talkin sh!t then end up fighting Tarver probably. He will become the Russian Danny Green. Roy Jones James Toney Antonio Tarver = GOAT
