Default Will James Toney ever be a force again?

Will he manage to have one last effort to win a major title or will he drift into MMA and retire?

Should he retire or does he have more to offer? Will a fight with a Klitschko ever happen, even for novelty value?

By the way how do you guys rate Denis Lebedev who beat both Jones and Toney? Lucky to catch legends on the slide (like Calzaghe) or a genuinely excellent fighter? It is interesting that if a UK fighter, say David Haye, had beaten Toney and Jones at Cruiser they would be thought of as a legend!

Here's a suggestion for your next thread: "Will Evander Holyfield ever be a force again??????". Looking forward to it.

Toney has been done for YEARS.

He's a fat, delusional, punch drunk fool.

Forget him.

No, but we'll get to watch his very entertaining if somewhat unintelligible HOF induction speech before the decade is out. Assuming he calls enough enough sooner than later.

Toney's last world class performance was the first Peter fight. He's been completely done since then. The weight up and down and fighting heavys and age caught up with him quick.

Sounds like a British fighter (possibly Calzaghe or Haye) beat your favourite fighters
