While many believe Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos or Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem is the biggest heavyweight fight of the next four months, somewhere there is a small contingent who were secretly considering James Toney vs. Ken Shamrock as the end-all, be-all in heavyweight battles.

(C'mon...you're out there somewhere, aren't you?)

Unfortunately for those people, the battle between the boxing champion and former UFC Superfight Champion has been delayed until next year and may be off completely.

To show the level of interest in this fight, the following "press release" was posted on his site...over a week ago:

After training extremely hard in preparation, Toney was informed not long ago that his unified rules bout with MMA hall-of-famer Ken Shamrock would be delayed until early part of 2012. Already in terrific shape and weighing near the cruiserweight limit of 200 lbs. Toney has decided to instead re-focus on his boxing career and target the #1 cruiserweight contender Denis Ledbedev, who recently knocked out one of his old-time rivals, Roy Jones Jr."

My glass of care seems to be empty... I have no interest in this at all, anyway.

The only people that care about this fight are James Toney and his team.......Shamrock probably doesnt give two sh*ts

I doubt it's going to happen. To a degree I Would actually,if nothing more than the pure novelty of it,see this fight. But really,it's probably for the better if we don't.

If they hit the ground they'd be stood up after 30 seconds unless there's a submission hold in place, then as soon as it's released they'd be stood up.

That stuff is a joke.

Why does it say, “unified rules" Have some drastic changes to the unified rules been put in place recently? I’d call this proposed bout a "BS freak show rules fix".

the only fight of Toney's I would watch is if he fought Kimbo in an mma fight. At least then I wouldn't have to see both these guys lumbering around for 10 rounds exhausted
