GUILLERMO JONES WINS A THRILLER IN MOSCOW
By Scott Shaffer

Don King has a champion once again

Guillermo Jones TKO11 Denis Lebedev... Guillermo Jones, a former junior middleweight, absorbed hundreds of heavy punches to regain the WBA cruiserweight championship. Fighting in Moscow against the small but murderous punching Denis Lebedev, Jones seemed to be behind on the cards when he floored an exhausted Lebedev in round eleven of a very cometitive and fast-paced fight. Lebedev went down on one knee, which lead referee Stanley Christodoulou to immediately stop the bout. Factoring heavily into the stoppage was the grotesque, elephantine swelling that closed Lebedev's right eye midway through the battle. Lebedev had no endswell or even a legitimate cutman in his corner (it looked like Alexander Povetkin was holding a bag of ice to his closed eye). Lebedev fought well for many rounds as a one-eyed fighter, but Jones, who had a fair amount of fat on him, simply outlasted Lebedev, who exhausted himself with hard punches. Jones hit Lebedev when he was down on one knee, not unlike Arthur Abraham against Andre Dirrell, but it did not change the outcome. Jones formerly held the WBA cruiserweight title, but his ridiculous inactivity under promoter Don King (three fights in the last 4.5 years) caused him to be demoted to champion in recess. Now back in possession of the title and still promoted by King, the Panamanian Jones can be proud of his tremendous effort today.
