Denis Lebedev-Roy Jones Jr. in Talks For Late April?

By Ruslan Chikov

According to overseas sources, a cruiserweight bout is being explored between the WBO's number one ranked fighter, Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16KOs) of Russia, and former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. (54-7, 40KOs) of the United States. Sources indicate the fight is being talked about for late April in Russia. Discussions are in the early stage. Lebedev is coming back from December's controversial decision loss to WBO champion Marco Huck. Jones was recently attempting to secure a fight with Tomasz Adamek, but their negotiations fell through when the Polish boxer landed his deal to face IBO/WBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko in September.

Roy should retire well he can talk well enough to be a commentator. But we know he won't.

Roy should fight Maccarinelli at a 185 catchweight.

Well nobody can say Roy doesn't have balls can they? Roys legacy is secure. Anything that happened after heavyweight besides the Tarver I comeback win doesn't matter.

It wasn't RJJ's fault that BHop wanted to act instead of fight in there rematch!
