The weigh in for the WBA Cruiserweight title fight between champion Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19) and "champion in recess" Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31) was done earlier today.
Lebedev was the lighter of the two men weighing 198.6lbs (90.1KG) which is lighter than he was for the first meeting with Jones. Jones came in just shy of the 200lb limit (90.7KG) which was 0.5KG heavier than he was for their first meeting.
As well as the weight in we also learned that Great Britain's Dave Parris will be one of the judges after Cesar Ramos was forced to be replaced from the bout due to visa issues.
After last years drug testing issues this bout will have the testing done by the Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses (LAD) with the hope that the fighters avoid the issues that left a dark cloud over their first bout. Of course Jones tested positive for a banned substance though many felt the sample had been tainted by the Russian lab testing the sample.
