Finally we have confirmation, that the WBA Cruiserweight title fight between Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19) and Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31) has been cancelled after Jones failed a drugs test.
The story, which has been developing over the past few hours, saw Jones first being tested positive then the WBA refused to sanction it as a world title bout. Soon after that the fight was cancelled with the men not coming to an agreement for a non-title fight.
We would like to think that Lebedev will be getting a fight in the coming months whilst Jones will hopefully never be seen in the ring again.
Whilst the fight was cancelled we've got to admit it wasn't just Jones who covered himself in disgrace but also British presenter Steve Bunce who acted like a genuine fool and showed a lack of professionalism in his role on Boxnation. We know he's widely respected in the UK but his under-hand digs at various people, ranging from fighters, to journalists to the WBA was genuinely disgraceful and something that we really can't defend. Hopefully Mr Bunce will think about his comments an issue an apology to certain people, including Gilberto Mendoza (WBA) and Ben Jacobs who was amongst the people who broke the story.
