Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs) was defeated by Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31 KOs) by 11th-round KO in their WBA cruiserweight title fight in Crocus City Hall in Moscow on Friday, and it was apparently a pretty ugly show. ESPN’s Dan Rafael was covering the fight and called it a fight of the year candidate. He says Lebedev suffered a cut above his right eye in the first round and that it became an absolute mess after that. Rafael continued to wonder how Lebedev was able to fight with his eye in such bad shape and why the fight wasn’t stopped. After seeing the pictures, we’re wondering the same thing. Despite the bad condition of his eye, Lebedev apparently was still able to hit Jones before going down for good in the 11th. Here’s what the eye looked like before the 11th round began: Lebedev’s eye at the start of the 11th round.

His face was so discolored it looked like he had a Phantom of the Opera mask on. Gross. Previously, I only knew Lebedev as the guy who destroyed Roy Jones a few years ago. Now, this is what I’ll remember him for. Photo via Twitter/Paul Kak
