Guillermo Jones and his promoter Don King arrive in Russia for a scheduled rematch with WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev, on April 25th at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow. Last May, Jones knocked out Lebdev in eleven rounds and gave him a terrible beating in capturing the WBA crown. Afterwards, Jones tested positive for a banned weight cutting agent. The WBA belt was returned to Lebedev but the result of the bout was not reserved. The WBA then ordered a rematch.
