Lebdev-Jones Rematche Eyed For February in Moscow

By Elisinio Castillo

Promoters Don King and Vladimir Hryunov had a meeting in Panama, with the World Boxing Association, to discuss the details of the cruiserweight rematch between Guillermo "El Felino" Jones (39-3-2, 31KOs) and Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19KOs), being targeted for a February date in Moscow, Russia.

Last month, during the WBA's annual convention, the sanctioning body stripped Jones of his world title and returned it to Lebedev. The ruling was made after Jones tested positive for furosemide (a weight cutting agent) following his eleventh round knockout of Lebedev on May 17 in Russia. After the belt was returned to Lebedev, Jones was installed as the mandatory challenger to the title.

For the positive test result, Jones also received a six-month suspension, which expired on the 17th of November.
