5 oz of pain

There looks like there may be a chance that we may have a respected boxing champion entering the Octagon a little sooner than many had previously expected

it wont happen, but toney is my favorite fighter ever. the guy has never been knocked down, thats insane for a guy with so many fights. that said, there is no way he could hang with anyone in the UFC, boxing is one thing, MMA is a different animal.

Before Randy came back and fought Tim Sylvia,Dana was trying to set up a Randy vs. Toney fight.

dana said he was trying to set up that fight, he also said tito would never be back. im just saying trhat you should never completely trust a pitchman.

Anybody ever play the original Fight Night? Toney was unbeatable. I once got knocked down 9 times and still got up every time to get the KO in the 10th. 9 times! Man, that game kicks ass.

I didn't know Indonesia was the pinnacle of "cage fighting". Toney is punch drunk. He said Dana only calls out bums like Roy Jones Jr. and Mayweather, Roy Jones Jr. handled Toney easily when they fought.

That fight was 15 years ago, you might as well claim Royce Gracie is #1 P4P while you're at it.

If I recall Roy Jones knocked him "down" after he tried to taunt Jones back.

Jones came leaping in with a left hook i believe (could have been right).an Toney was sent back pedaling till he fell into the corner

Sam Peter knocked him down in their second fight. Roy Jones Jr. dropped him too.

What point are you making? Roy Jones is still more relevant than James Toney.

Toney will draw in some boxing fans, Dana will make money off this....Dana will do this.
