Guillermo Jones Open To Facing The Klitschko Brothers

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA cruiserweight king Guillermo "El Felino" Jones (38-3-2, 30KOs) is open to moving up in weight to face either of the Klitschko brothers, who own every major title at the weight. Jones is currently training in Miami, Florida.

Jones was ordered by the World Boxing Association to defend his title against Lateef Kayode, but the unbeaten boxer accepted a fight against IBO champion Antonio Tarver on May 26th. The WBA's interim-champion, Denis Lebedev, is also busy - with a scheduled fight against Shawn Cox on April 4th.

With his options running low, Jones is open for a possible big fight at heavyweight or a WBA title defense against an opponent in the top 15.

"These are all options. There's nothing concrete yet, "Jones said. "Right now I'm already down to 220 pounds and working hard because I want to fight and defend my world title."

Whats with these CW's coming up trying to face a brother? I guess they see that they would make more money getting pummeled by a brother than fighting in their own division. "I worked hard, I deserve a pay day"…
