Toney was calling Benn out after he beat Barkley back in early 93. He got no response so he decided to try and shame him in public to accept the fight. That was what the Ross show was all about. His manager, Kallen wanted to get the talks started but she got no response from Benn or Eubank. This is why Toney decided to move up after fighting his no 1 mandatory Tim Littles back in 94. Jones was ignoring him and Benn and Eubank were not interested. Jones decided to move up so Toney decided to have take that fight before moving up to lhw.

McClellan could still make the mw limit, but he decided to move up because he was chasing after Jones who moved up to fight Toney late 94

Hopkins was a mw contender and did not get a mw belt until mid 95, so he had no reason to move up to smw at that point.
