Rematch of Brutal Fight Set For April 26th




A rematch of one of the most brutal fights ever contested inside of a boxing ring will be taking place on April 26th in Russia.

On May 17th, 2013, Guillermo Jones battered and bruised Denis Lebedev to win the WBA World cruiserweight title. The fight was stopped by the referee in the 11th round after it became apparent that Lebedev's eye had suffered some terrible damage. All of the area around Lebedev's eye socket was swollen and misshapen, and half of his face was bruised. Lebedev's post-fight face was quite the sight to behold, with many people figuring that the fighter had likely suffered permanent damage to his eye.

However, the victory was short-lived for Jones, as he failed a post-fight drug test and was forced to give the title back to Lebedev.

--

The rematch of the first brutal fight has now been set for April 26th. Neither fighter has stepped foot inside of the boxing ring since their May 17th, 2013 fight.

Lebedev currently has a record of 25-2-0, with 19 of his wins coming via knockout. Prior to the first Jones fight, Lebedev had notched victories over the likes of Santander Silgado and Shawn Cox.

Guillermo Jones, on the other hand, currently has a record of 39-3-2, with 31 of his wins coming via knockout. Prior to his first fight with Lebedev, Jones had been on a six fight winning streak, including wins over the likes of Michael Marrone and Valery Brudov.
