Hi pal,

You'll have to educate me on this.

I thought the winner of this fight was in line for a shot a Nunn/Toney, but a draw threw a spanner in the works?

Didn't King want the winner to fight those guys?

I know around the same time, that Eubank was content with his deal defending the WBO and basically picking his own opponents.

Then he later admitted that he didn't want Toney, and Roy was never his mandatory.


Regards, Loudon.

All this video teaches me is that James Toney has always been unintelligible.

You seen Toneys"win" against weak punching Dave Tiberi? Toney got even wobbled in that fight and was given a pure gift decision.He looked a sack of shit in that fight.I`d even give our Nicky Piper a win over Tiberi.

That was great. Benn was a bad man, a real hooligan. It's a pity these men never fought Toney, would've been great fights. I think Toney beats Benn, but loses to Eubank.

Also, how the **** has Jonathan Ross not aged a single bit over 20 years time?

Benn was Eubank's WBO mandatory at smw, but Eubank refused to face him. So Benn would vacate his position to fight for the WBC belt which he won. It was only then that Eubank, who was sitting ringside for the Benn-Galvano fight, agreed to fight him.

The purse for the fight was 1.4m which was going to get split 50-50. It was to be shown on ITV. This was when Don King arrived on the scene. King wanted to unify the belts and wanted the WBC belt, neither King or Showtime wanted the WBO belt, which wasn't recognized back then. The deal was in exchange for bringing in the Showtime money, the winner of Benn-Eubank would give King the right to co-promote their next three fights. Benn would get 300k and Eubank would get 100k. The winner supposed to fight Nunn, who was a King fighter

The fight was scored a draw, so Eubank opted out. Benn was so impressed with the extra money then he signed on with King. In his autobiography he says it was the best thing he ever did. The problem was that Nunn would drop a debatable decision to Steve Littles.

Toney was not involved in any of the above, but around that time he had been openly calling for Nunn, Benn and Eubank

Anyone who calls Benn a ducker is a ****

He fought Gerald mclellan when he was reputed as a mass murdering killing machine ko artist. Sadly mclellan got brain damaged off Benn and has never recovered

Benn would of fought toney no problem

What did James do a year after this video?

He fought Roy Jones.

Something that Eubank wasn't interested in.

The winner of Benn vs Eubank 2 was going to fight Toney, but they drew. How did James hide from them? Did he run up to 175 because he was scared?

Roy didn't do much at 168, because after he'd beaten Toney, he knew he wouldn't be able to unify, so he moved up to 175 for a new challenge.

Benn and Eubank had better 168 resumes, because that was their best weight, and they stayed there longer than James.

Yet again, you haven't allowed for circumstances.

Overall, Toney has a better resume than both.


Regards, Loudon.

The winner was gonna fight Nunn actually. Who Toney was losing to wide before pulling out a show stopper.

Why the hate for Brit fighters ? some shite agenda that nobody cares about You seem like an intelligent enough guy.
