Toney got good skills as a boxer - and he is very tough and durable.
But even Toney was forced to submit when randy clamped down on him.
How does a skilled combat fighter - avoid having a choke taking him out ?
And if that had been a street fight with no ref to step in and Randy kept the choke hold on Toney like that - would he have killed him from strangulation ?
i have always thought choking should not be allowed in the sport. the drive to win is surely cut short when you fear for your life . thats not sport.
