Vladimir Hryunov, manager of top cruiserweight Denis Lebedev (21-1, 16KOs) of Russia, has confirmed's report about a possible fight taking place with former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. (54-7, 40KOs) of the United States. There are ongoing negotiations to hold the fight in late April in Moscow.

"Indeed, those discussions are taking place. We are in very close contact with Jones' lawyer [John Wirt of Square Ring], and actually we only have a few more details to work out and I hope that we will reach an agreement soon. I don't think that it's going to take too long," Hryunov said.
