Jones: Lebedev Will Need Facial Surgery After Rematch

By Elisinio Castillo

Former champion Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31KOs) has promised to badly punish Denis Lebedev (25-2) when they collide for a second time for the WBA cruiserweight title on April 12th in Moscow, Russia.

When they fought in May of last year, Jones busted up Lebedev and disfigured his entire face. He finished the Russian boxer off in the eleventh round. But then Jones tested positive for a banned substance. The result stayed the same, but the title was returned to Lebedev and the WBA ordered a rematch.

Lebedev spent some time in Los Angeles, learning new things by training with Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood.

"Lebedev can train with Roach or with Rocky Balboa. I learned to fight when I was 120 pounds and in the streets of Columbus," said Jones.

Jones said the fight will be called "facial surgery part 2."
