Guillermo Jones Given Strict Green Light To Fight Again

By Hilmar Rojas

During the press conference held earlier today by the World Boxing Association, where they discussed the 94th Convention and the next edition of KO To Drugs, WBA Vice President Gilberto Mendoza discussed the current status of former champion Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31KOs).

Jones has been allowed by the WBA to return to the ring "with a number of conditions." The boxer was suspended after testing positive twice for the banned substance Furosemide - both times in connection with the Denis Lebedev bout.

Jones has been out of the ring since May 2013.

Mendoza explained - "After reviewing the case, we have to remember that he tested positive for Furosemide after the first fight with Denis Lebedev. Later there was the issue of the rematch where he also tested positive for the same substance in a pre-fight test. Guillermo Jones wrote to the WBA, asking that his suspension be reduced and limited to two years and that he was thinking about boxing at heavyweight."

Then Mendoza said it was decided that he would allow Jones to fight but "he must submit to random anti-doping tests during training, whether it's in the United States, Panama or wherever he will train."

And he went on explaining that Jones can only fight at heavyweight and will have to have two fights in that division before being re-classified in the rankings.

"He will not be recognized for any opportunity for a regional or world title before fulfilling these requirements."
