- Toney's mixed boxing/mma rules fight with Ken Shamrock has been postponed indefinitely.

- Denis Lebedev's last fight was a (brutal) KO win over Roy Jones Jr.

- Vladimir Hryunov (Russian boxing promoter and Lebedev's manager) is behind all this. And is apparently trying to bring back boxing in Russia, grooming upcoming Russian fighters and putting them against over their prime veterans.

I'm going for Toney simply because I think Lebedev is the Russian version of Danny Green. Yes, I'm comparing Toney-Lebedev to Tarver-Green.

James Toney has nothing but a punch anymore. His legs are gone, his speed is long gone, his defense is gone, his trunk agility is gone, his ability to think is gone. He's basicaly a punching bag that might hit back. It doesn't matter who he's fighting, that's who I pick to win. Unless it's Shamrock.

Another vote for Toney. As he looks more promising than others.

I always thought it was funny how Toney could stand flat-footed and barely move, yet still consistantly make people faster than miss and pay for it. Here is his most recent fight in full.

Despite obviously losing some of skills, he didn't look as bad as a former 160lb fighter should 100lbs heavier and pushing 50. Lebedev is a much tougher opponent, but it's possible losing 60lbs will allow Toney to use skills he wasn't physicaly able to against Reed. It's also certain that the amount of work it will take to lose and keep off that weight will do wonders for Toney's health and confidence.

Even if he still loses but looks good doing it, I'll gladly take back my criticism of him. However, with his already diminishing mental capacity, I still don't think it's a good idea for him to be fighting.

James Toney is awesome! I hope he wins. He still has that Knock Out power and if he comes to ring in with good conditioning, I think he stands a strong chance of winning.

NOW will James Toney please just go away ??
This guy has absolutely nothing left to contribute to the sport of Boxing. I cannot believe there are so many people around who actually think this guy has a chance at winning anything anymore.
Don't any of you feel foolish ?
Anyone who didn't write him off after the MMA debacle is either stupid or ridiculously hopeful.
I wrote him off long before then, and I haven't been wrong yet. It doesn't take a genius to see this guy is so completely finished as a pro fighter its not even funny anymore.
I hope this is the last thread we will see here on James Toney.
Enough already.

Sadly, I agree.

10 years ago, Toney would've breezed through this guy. Hell, even 5 years ago would still be a good win for Toney.

Damn, in the first few rounds you could see his confidence melt away and turn into shock.

An All-Time Great for sure, but now it's all over.


I honestly didn't think he was THAT done. I need a hug :(
